Some people often think it's just a waste of gas to go store to store, but if you plan it just right it works fine...
After dropping off the kids to school, I regularly pass by these stores on my way home, so my mileage is all the same.
If I went home and then went back to the store and went back home and then went back (passing the same stores) to pick up the kids, then "yes," it'd be wasting gas...
So plan your shopping trips wisely by knowing what you're going to buy (with the right coupons in hand) as well as the route you're going to take.
