Is it crazy that Summer is almost over? The kids are already almost back to school, so you know what that means? Time to make the best of these last few weekends of Summer. It has become a sort of date night for me and my husband to spend Friday night shopping at Albertsons. I know it's not the most romantic, but for us, it's time without the kids and we enjoy planning fun meals for the weekend. There is something calming about shopping at Albertsons on a Friday night, it's actually kinda pleasant, especially when we save money.

Now through August 11th, Albertsons and other banner stores (like Safeway, Vons, Super Saver and Acme) are having #AHugeSale for their anniversary and right now is the perfect time to stock up for the weekend and even back to school. I picked up 4 bags of my husband's favorite chips for under $8 and stocked up on 3- 8 packs of 20 oz Gatorades for under $10. Just those items alone will guarantee that my husband will be a happy camper all weekend.

As you can see, I managed to remember my shopping list this time. I don't know how many times I pull into the parking lot and realize I left my list on the counter at home. My weekend shopping list always includes breakfast, pancakes and OJ and food to BBQ and snack on. I love the produce and fresh salads and my husband loves his chips. He's very particular about which chips he buys, so I like to leave him in the chip aisle while I shop for other items on my list. We always find each other 15 minutes later with the weekends chips in hand.

The Gatorades are a great deal! With the Summer heat, we drink a lot of water but with my husband working and sweating so much at work, he definitely needs something to help him rehydrate. At the end of the day my husband will sneak a couple bottles of Gatorade in the freezer to make them slushy and use that to cool himself down before bed.

My favorite part of shopping at Albertsons, besides the sale prices of course, is shopping in the produce section. I am in love with how fresh everything is. I always leave with a fruit bowl.

These last few days of Summer we will be spending all day outside and look how easy it is to prep a lunch filled with variety. All the options available at a great price are perfect for the weekends and when it's time to start packing those school lunches. Do you shop at  Albertsons?
