  The best and worst times to travel for the Thanksgiving holiday Millions of Americans travel around Thanksgiving every year. That means that whether you’re driving to grandmother’s house or taking an international flight this Thanksgiving, you should expect to deal with crowds. The vast majority of travelers are expected to be driving to their Thanksgiving destinations. Major cities see the worst congestion during evening commute hours on the weekdays leading up to Thanksgiving as folks try to hit the road after work so they don’t have to use an extra vacation day to travel.

Avoid this day and make your Thanksgiving shopping stress-free. According to a study of grocery shopping in America, the worst day to shop for your Thanksgiving fixins’ is two days before the holiday.

If you thought the day before Thanksgiving was the worst , you'd be mistaken.

To have a smooth and successful dinner that both you and your guests can enjoy, it’s important to have a solid strategy every step of the way.

According to “Grocery: The Buying and Selling of Food in America” by Michael Ruhlman, the absolute worst day to go to the supermarket for the ingredients for your Thanksgiving side dishes and your turkey is the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. This year, that falls on Nov. 26.

You might imagine that the worst day to hit the supermarket is the day before Thanksgiving . And you’re not entirely wrong. Stores will be busy, with hordes of people who forgot that their favorite stuffing recipe calls for chicken broth or foolishly thought that one pack of butter would be enough.

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.

“Everyone thinks that on Wednesday they will contend with nightmare crowds, so they all try to beat the rush by shopping Tuesday,” Ruhlman wrote in his book.

That turns Tuesday at your local grocery store into a nightmare, while Wednesday is relatively relaxed, although still not a great option, considering a lot of the best options are gone or thoroughly picked through.

The best time to buy your turkey and all the other necessary ingredients is a week or so before Turkey Day, if not earlier. Knowing the right time to hit the grocery store is just one of many tips and strategies for easy Thanksgiving shopping.
