#2. Be patient with parking. I waited 20 minutes for a good parking spot at the Garden City Center rather then settling for a spot far from my destination.
#4. Know how to close your stroller... The Pivot is super easy to break down but since it was brand new and my hubs put it in the car, I had a panic minute or two trying to figure out how to close it for the first time while cars were waiting for my spot!
#7. Send someone to the car with the bags after each store to keep the stroller free. Even though our Evenflo stroller is easy to maneuver through packed stores, the less bags weighing it down made it more enjoyable. My sister went shopping with me, and one of us ran to the car to unload after checking out of each place. Good way to work off those Christmas cookies!
Don't be scared to go holiday shopping with your infant. If you have the right gear and plan ahead, it is a breeze!
