Food shopping can be a huge headache - especially when it comes time to check out. From the moment you enter those automatic doors and grab your cart, the dollar signs start adding up. Though it's not nearly as bad as the check you get while wining and dining at a restaurant, supermarket bills can be expensive.
Like most busy people, weekend days are the most popular time to tackle the daunting task of food shopping. But according to new research from Ibotta, an app that partners up with retailers to give cash back deals, that's not the ideal time to get the most bang for your buck.
Across the country, the weekend is the priciest time to make your way through your grocery list.
But, don't fret: Ibotta also recommended the best days to shop 'til you drop. If you're stocking up on wine, consider grabbing your bottles on Tuesdays. You could stand to pay 4% less.
Wednesdays are ideal for buying bread (it's 2% cheaper) and beer, which is about 1% less expensive. If you're a snack lover, head to the store on Thursdays to get a little less than 1% off many sweet and savory items. On Fridays you can get produce and ice cream around 1% cheaper.
Though you won't see massive discounts on the spot at check out, if you buy wine and ice cream at the rate we do, get excited to see some serious dolla bills add up over time.
