Save Your Shopping Trips with Snap + Shop Tray! (+ 15% OFF CODE!)

Hey mama! Did today’s trip to pick up milk and bread leave you yanking your hair out? Are you finally pulled into your driveway with your little one passed out oh-so-sweet in the backseat while your heart is still racing from that terrible run to Target?

Listen, we’ve all been there, and I’ve got your back when the older woman behind you glares, or when the young couple in the aisle next to you comments about how their child “will never act like that in public,” I’ve totally got your back…and so does Snap + Shop.

I’m not exaggerating when I say that I have been waiting, desperately, to come across this mama miracle.

We all know what it’s like to:

a. Spend 35 minutes before even leaving the house or getting dressed, preparing snacks for  what should be-at max, an hour out of the house.

or  b. Packing said snacks and realize as you pull into Target that you’ve forgetten all of them on the kitchen counter.

If you’ve made it to c. and remembered you’re littles’ snack collection, you’re now moving onto the next dreaded step…

STRUGGLING WITH 5 BAGS OF CRACKERS AND CHEERIOS MANAGING TO (hopefully) ONLY DROP SOME ONTO THE FLOOR BEFORE YOUR (loving & beautiful) TODDLER SPRINKLES THE REST THROUGHOUT THE STORE AISLES.

On the other hand, you could save yourself all of the prep and Zilpoc waste, losing precious snacks to the floor before your toddler even gets ahold of them, and most importantly…occupy that sweet bundle as you shop your way through Target heaven!
