Let’s face it. You can get good and bad deals at any store you shop at and that’s just the truth. I’m not here to tell you why you should shop at Trader Joe’s because it’s the cheapest place, or tell you that you’ll definitely get your money’s worth there. What I am here to tell you is how to get the out of your shopping experience there if you do happen to shop there! Here are a few of the best things to buy at Trader Joe’s – especially when they come on sale!

Dairy Products: Trader Joe’s is known to have an amazing selection of cheeses and at a very good price. And in 2012 they announced that their brand of eggs are all cage free!

Wine: What’s the first thing that you think of when you think of Trader Joe’s? Wine. Cheap wine. Cheap wine that isn’t terrible. Do we need to say any more?

Flowers: When it comes to flowers many people will spend up to $100 on a bouquet of flowers. Orchids happen to be my favorite indoor plant and here you’ll find them for roughly $3-$4. At Meijer they can be anywhere from $18-$30. That’s Craziness!

Seafood: Back in 2001 Trader Joe’s decided not to use genetically modified foods like most grocery stores do. They made all of their seafood sustainably sourced which helps to reduce risks of sickness and volatility. What does that mean for you? Higher quality and safer seafood at a fraction of the cost.

Oh, and don’t forget to check out their Tasting Hut! It’s a cute little hut that fits perfect with their Hawaiian theme where you can taste the latest and greatest.
