MISSY -- I'm also one to keep a thrifty eye out for bargains! Funny you mention this about Thursdays....but it is the day my 84 yr old Mom has decided is the best day of the week for me to devote my entire day's time to take her on her errands.
She had to give up driving about 3 or 4 yrs ago (I forget...time passes so quickly) and back when I was working Tu and Thurs, I was taking her on Wednesdays. Occasionally we'd do it on Fridays.
We found out that Wednesdays were the days the new ad came out in the paper, and they were all stocked up with fresh stuff, but the prices were not always right on the store computers, and the workers were not totally up on where the advertised items were located.
Fridays were good, but more crowded with shoppers...and aisles more crowded, parking spaces harder to find...checkout lines longer....
...so now that I'm no longer working on Thurs. it's my Mom's first choice shopping and errand day. Only thing is...some of her doctors take Thurs off, so when she has an appt we have to move the errand day to Wed or Friday.
Along the lines of thrifty prices in the grocery stores....our local HEB Texas chains do markdowns on fresh produce, meat and other items and all through the week you can get some good deals...usually 50% off original price. A lot of the time it is out there early in the morning...especially with the produce and meat items.
