Thanksgiving Traditions with Kiss 95.1

STAMFORD, CT - NOVEMBER 24: A Guatemalan immigrant carves the Thanksgiving turkey on November 24, 2016 in Stamford, Connecticut. Family and friends, some of them U.S. citizens, others on work visas and some undocumented immigrants came together in an apartment to celebrate the American holiday with turkey and Latin American dishes. They expressed concern with the results of the U.S. Presidential election of president-elect Donald Trump, some saying their U.S.-born children fear the possibilty their parents will be deported after Trump's inauguration.

So there’s one day we should avoid going to the supermarket to buy the fixings for the turkey dinner. It seems the Tuesday before Thanksgiving is the absolute worst day for grocery shopping for a turkey and everything that goes with it. This year, that day is Tuesday, November 26th.

The Daily Meal explains that everyone assumes Wednesday – the day before the holiday – will be a bad day to shop, so they try to beat the crowds by going on Tuesday.

And while you could take your chances and wait until Wednesday to stock up, you risk the best options being picked over or running out. So when is the best time to grocery shop for Thanksgiving? A week or so before Turkey Day, if not earlier. Gobble Gobble!
