Default Shopping Tip

If you are doing some discount/bargain shopping at places like the Dollar Store, Grocery Outlet, etc., do it first thing in the morning. Most of the people who shop at those places don't roll out of bed until 10-11:00 or so. You'll practically have the whole store to yourself and won't have to wait in any long lines.

By the same token, pick up your prescriptions late in the afternoon. Damn old people jam those places up before they even open.

I do my occasional Wal-mart trips between 7 and 8am.

Not because the store is largely empty, but rather because the class of shopper there is entirely different.

Going to the same Wal-Mart at 8am vs. 3pm or 8pm is like visiting 2 entirely separate countries. In one, the people are friendly, civilized, courteous, and well put together. In the other, the people are rude, trashy, and apparently have some sort of religious objection to regular bathing.
