What day of the week do you do your grocery shopping? If it isn't Wednesday, you may want to change it according to iVillage.com. "We’ve all been there: Trying to tackle our grocery shopping on a Sunday, when stores are mobbed and shelves are feebly stocked. Sure, that may be a convenient day off from work to handle chores -- but it also happens to feel like a lousy time to approach the task when you can’t even find a space in the parking lot or an empty shopping cart with four working wheels.

So what’s the best day to shop for groceries? If you can swing it, Lifehacker suggests you try Wednesday nights. Grocery stores tend to release their new sale advertisements that day, while also honoring advertised sales from the previous week. Further, mid-week is when stores often restock items like produce and meat." READ MORE

The short answer is whatever day fits my mood but I try real hard not to go when the crowds are there after work. This morning was really warm and pretty around here and went out without a coat. I was going grocery shopping but before I could get there it turned cold and cloudy so I came home instead of shopping. I needed to get a coat. Maybe I'll go tomorrow during the day.

I go when I need things or when its convenient for me. Only one store here has the double ad Wednesdays, sometimes I go there on Wednesdays but usually not, because it does tend to be a lot more crowded that day. I shop at several different stores but not all of them each week.
