You won't believe this. I found myself shopping at 1:00 am this morning. I was awake playing on the internet. I needed to get a few things from the store and I thought Why Not? I know I have to get up in the morning, but rarely do I go to bed this late, so I went to the store. It was nice. There's no one there; they were putting out the sale items (Turkey for 88 cents a pound, is that good?); and I went in my comfy pants and no one was there to recognize me. I'm not sure that's such a bad idea now. Hmmm new tip: Shop while no one is there, the kids are asleep so they aren't asking for the extras and you can actually concentrate on the prices of items. Of course this only works with the 24/7 stores, unfortunately I couldn't run down to our other local store and check prices because they close at night. But that's alright, because I did write down the prices of several of my "gotta have" items. That away, when I do go to the other store I can check if the prices are comparable.
