Reader Amy writes in with a great grocery store tip:
I do a lot of after-work shopping and have started to get the hang of the late-night discounts. One thing I’ve noticed is that supermarkets with in-store bakeries offer good deals on bread and pastries: the bakeries generally close before the supermarket does, and when that happens they will put discount stickers on any remaining items. An especially good deal is when they stuff several buns and pastries into a bag and offer it for a ridiculously low price.
If you find out what time the bakery closes you can plan your shopping trips accordingly. But watch out– other people do it too. At my local supermarket there is always a small crowd milling about waiting for the discounted pastries, and come discount time there is a mad dash to grab the best ones!
Please refer to the article on cheap steaks for more on late-night discount stickers. Time to stock up on those shu-creams!
