After months of a steady flow of work, our business has really exploded recently. It is a great ‘problem’ to have, but it does mean simplifying other areas of our life. We try to avoid as much unnecessary stress as possible, especially when it comes to food and meals.

So, this deal could not have happened at a better time.

Yesterday was packed with several meetings, conference calls, designs to firm up with clients, and kids to shuttle around.

A day in overdrive.

Driving home from one of my meetings (with a sinus headache coming on hard) I was smacked with the realization that I still needed groceries.

Since I work from home, I prefer to shop during the week when I can, to avoid the weekend mad-dash to the store along with the rest of humanity. I considered putting it off, but when I remembered it was Thursday, and the weekend was knocking on the door, I headed my car on over to the nearest Publix.

(Side note: Can I just mention, that our Publix has the nicest cashiers and baggers? Honestly. I always leave that place feeling good about humanity)

Knowing my day was not over, I headed straight for the deli and grabbed a BBQ Rotisserie chicken for dinner (score one for simplicity!).

I had several other things to grab and stock up on: fruits and veggies, cheese, steel-cut oatmeal, dishwasher gel packs and fabric softener and a few “just because” items (their sushi is so good!).

I didn’t even have to hand them a coupon for the free chicken. It was deducted automatically at the register.

In and out. Easy peasy.

With four kids and a business, life is crazy enough. But throw in a bad sinus headache and the “One-List Life” promotion saved the day. By just purchasing (any four participating P&G) items already on my list, dinner was ready when I got home.

(*Here’s one other nugget of awesome: if you saved your January 29 P&G brandSAVER, there are coupons for Tide, Charmin, Pampers, Bounty, Iams, Pantene and Cascade that you can use on top of the promotional savings.)

Thank you to P&G for sponsoring my participation in this “One List Life” promotion. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective. All opinions expressed here are my own.
