You would THINK it would be a kamikaze mission to go to the grocery store the night before Thanksgiving . . . crowded parking lots, picked-over shelves, middle-aged women shoving each other over the last can of cranberry sauce.
But apparently, that’s NOT the worst time to shop for Thanksgiving dinner. According to one expert, the TUESDAY before Thanksgiving is actually worse.
Why? Because everyone ASSUMES Wednesday will be so bad that they try to beat the crowds by going on Tuesday.

Even though the stores say that the Christmas season started roughly back in August, odds are you’re still not quite there yet.
So here’s some useful info: A new study figured out the best and worst times to buy a Christmas tree.
Unfortunately, the worst times are when you almost definitely want to buy one . . . and the best times are pretty lame.
The worst time to buy one is Cyber Monday, when the average price is $81. Black Friday is the second-worst time, at $77.
The best time? CHRISTMAS EVE, when the prices drop all the way to $47.
Of course, if you actually want to have the tree for longer than one night, you can spend 10 bucks more and buy your tree for an average of $57 in the week leading up to Christmas.
