Mistake #12: Shopping during peak time.
Take it from me – the grocery lady expert (hehehe). I shop once a week for my groceries – once a week, and that’s it. I usually go there on Wednesdays and as it opens up or when it is about to close. Why? Because the grocery store is usually thin at the middle of the week (in my experience) and when it is very early or about to close. There is just one drawback to that – there is no rotisserie chicken yet when I go early and it is usually sold out at night. Oh, dang!
