Going grocery shopping can be a nightmare. The parking lot is full, the aisles are crowded, it’s enough to make a person have a meltdown by the frozen food. Well, it gets worse. According to Ibotta, many items are priced above average on the weekend.
Ibotta, a shopping app, determined that you should avoid Saturdays and Sundays and stick to grocery shopping on weekdays if you want to save some money.
Here are some of the things Ibotta discovered when they crunched the numbers. Wine is 4% cheaper on Tuesdays. On Wednesdays, beer is 1% cheaper on average and bread goes down by 2%. For you veggie lovers, produce is 3% cheaper on Hump Day.
And here’s a huge one: on Fridays, ice cream is down 1%.
If you want a stress-free shopping experience, the advice is to go on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings when the stores will be the least crowded. So now that you’re armed with this information, plan your trips to the grocery store for maximum privacy – and to save some cold, hard cash.
