Tightwad tuesday: optimize grocery trips

Want to grocery shop more expeditiously? The most important thing to remember: get in and get out. You spend an extra 50 cents per minute for every minute over half an hour you stay in the supermarket (this goes double or triple for big warehouse places like Costco!) Pick the best time of day for you that will allow you to shop efficiently. To avoid impulse buying, avoid shopping when you are hungry, tired or irritable.
