I was going to start this out by saying that I learned a lesson this past weekend, but that wouldn't be totally accurate. What I can say is that I had a longstanding piece of knowledge reinforced.

I went grocery shopping on a Sunday afternoon.

I know, I know, you're just asking for your blood pressure to spike through the roof in that scenario, but when you have to shop, you have to shop, right?

Here in Ocean County we have no lack of options for grocery shopping. From mega-chains to farm stands and everything in between, it's as easy to run to the store after work and grab a few things as it is to get a cart full of goods for the whole family.

The big trick is in the strategy.

And yes, there is a strategy in smart grocery shopping.

Rule #1 - don't do it on a Sunday afternoon!
