Early-bird diners have a point: Timing is everything when we are trying to save energy, time and money. I've learned that lesson the hard way and have wasted valuable hours and dollars by selecting poor time slots for errands, appointments and other commitments.
Therefore, I was pleased when I found this article about the best & worst times for errands in an old issue of Redbook magazine. Here's the schedule:
Best time: Early AM on weekends, after dinner or lunch breaks.
Worst time: Immediately before or after work.
Best Time: Early AM
Worst Time: End of the day. (Delays throughout the day create crowded offices by late afternoon)
Shopping at the Mall:
Best Time: Thursday nights and weekday mornings
Worst Time: Weekends
Best Time: After dinner, especially midweek
Worst: Morning or evening rush hour.
