I told myself I wouldn't play this year, but when I saw the display standing tall and proud at the McCall Albertsons on Sunday, I knew I couldn't resist...

When we were in McCall over the weekend, I had to make a girl emergency run to Albertsons and stopped dead in my tracks when I saw the Monopoly man display ready to greet me at the door. It's that time of year again where I become absolutely shameless playing the addicting grocery store game. I get so sucked into the game that I stand behind you in the checkout line, secretly hoping you'll turn down your the pieces so that the cashier can give them to me. I'm the girl who begs her friends for their pieces. I'm the girl that will do my grocery shopping for the week over the course of several days and buy only items marked with bonus pieces, just to maximize my chances of filling up my game board.

Last year, I told myself that I was NEVER EVER PLAYING Albertsons Monopoly again because I never win anything. Well, that all changed when my fiance and I finally won a prize on the board! Given, it was only a $5 Albertons gift card...but it showed us that winning was actually possible. This year we aspire to a bigger, better prize!

I picked up our game board on Tuesday night, but they don't actually start handing pieces out until today (February 7.) Conicidently, the game begins on the 82nd anniversary of the first Monoloply board game being sold to the public. That's a fun fact that I picked up from Alexa this morning!

Any who, check out some of the cool prizes you can win this year! You have until May 8 (or when your Albertsons runs out of pieces) to try to shop and win!
