I only go shopping for food in the middle of the night

My DH thinks I am weird for it but whenever I go grocery shopping I go at like 2 or 3 am. I find it a lot easier as I am almost always one of the only people at the store and if you go on the right day they have just stocked everything and I get pretty much first pick

Our store is very busy during the day and I hated having to deal with so many other people so I just go in the middle of the night

I do the same thing except I go the night before the 1st around 11pm.... Shelfs are always stocked and then I don't have to deal with the long lines from all the food stamp users the first week of the month....

I like grocery shopping at night too. I usually go around 11. I don't like crowds and get frustrated by oblivious people. It's much more relaxing to do it at a time when the store is dead.

I usually go in the middle of the morning there's nothing but old people there at that time and I can deal with them.

Do you have a social anxiety disorder? That's an awful lot of effort to avoid crowds and get bananas that are eight hours newer.

No I am impatient and dont like waiting around for people to move out of the way of where I need to go. My store will be packed (only one on this side of town) during almost any time of the day and it drives me nuts taking forever to walk down the isles because there are 10-15 people in the same one. 

There is no effort involved I just go at a different time and I see a lot of benefits from it.

Are you typically up in the middle of the night?
