Fine print: Louisville grocery deals for the week of 6.6.10

I’m considering changing the publication date of Fine Print. How do you feel about seeing the week’s grocery deals on Monday?

Here’s what I’m thinking:

  • Most people have slipped into a mild depression by Sunday night because of the looming Monday and aren’t really interested in grocery deals.
  • Some folks are still cuddled up with their families on Sunday.
  • I’m doing both of the above.

Let me know what you think in the comments, or e-mail me.
