“I want to get a discount because I’m a super-competent person,” she says.
I’ve got a good education.
I have a good resume.”
She’s also a great customer.
“It’s great for the environment.
I like the fact that there’s a little bit of fun and adventure in it.”
But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have some reservations.
She’s not just about shopping at the grocery store, either.
She loves the outdoor space and the food.
“There’s a really good selection of fruits and veggies and all that stuff,” she admits.
“But I’ve always been a pretty big proponent of having a little more privacy in my home.
I want to make sure that everything’s in my own home.”
And if she doesn’ t have a home to call home, she wants to be able to visit it at the same time.
“When I was younger, I remember going to Disneyland and seeing Mickey Mouse,” she jokes.
“And I thought, Oh, wow, that’s kind of like my childhood.
That’s kind, that is kind of my childhood.”
And while she likes the freedom she gets with her family, she’s also aware of the limitations of her home.
“You know, I can’t go on a plane because I’ll be too tired,” she confesses.
That really sucks.”
She says she’s always been willing to learn, especially when it comes to shopping for groceries.
“Because there’s always a reason to do something different,” she adds.
“If it’s not my favorite thing, I’ll do it again.”
And for the most part, she seems to be taking it upon herself to do just that.
“Now that I’ve had kids, I feel like I’m able to do things in a different way,” she explains.
“Like, ‘Oh, this is how you do it.’
I think I’m actually doing it differently than before.
I’m just more adventurous.”
So what’s the secret to her success?
Well, she says it has to do with the time she spends at home.
She says the kids don’t want to spend the time at the house with their parents, so she’s just hanging out at home, eating dinner, watching TV.
“Oh, it’s just so relaxing,” she smiles.
“We all go through it together.
It’s a whole new world.”
She has a knack for keeping track of everything.
She has an iPad, which she uses to store all of her purchases and keeps track of the prices of everything from shampoo to shampoo and conditioner.
“So, when I have time, I check all of my clothes and what I’m spending on things, and I’ll make notes for each item,” she recalls.
“Then I’ll have a little checklist and I just do it.
It works really well.”
In fact, she even has a list of what she’s bought and how much it costs.
“Every day, I keep that list in my fridge,” she laughs.
“For the first six months, I would check it on the way home.
But I got bored.
I think it’s actually kind of the opposite.
I don’t have to think about it anymore.”
She also loves to spend time with her kids, which is something she says is part of the reason she’s so successful.
“They love to be around me.
And I love being around them, too.
I love that.”
