In most places. Why? Most grocery store sales and specials start on Wednesday and many will often still have items from the previous week at the sales price so you get double the sale items.

Stores are not as busy and you can often catch items at a discount from the bakery or deli.Enjoyed this post? Consider sharing it with friends by clicking one of the buttons to the left.
