Last year, I wrote a post called The 7 Things I Only Buy at Costco. Thanks to the wonders of a price book, I know that yeast, organic mixed greens and five other things are always going to be cheaper at Costco than anywhere else.
That post prompted a reader named Shaina to ask me last week on Facebook what are the proverbial “7 Things” I’d recommend buying at Trader Joe’s.
Unfortunately, I’m not a TJ expert. Although we do have a Trader Joe’s in Kansas City, it’s only be open for a few months now and I haven’t really had time to comparison shop for all my basic groceries.
But, as I said last week on Facebook, I knew just who to ask to get an answer to Shaina’s question! YOU!
While I know we all have our favorites at Trader Joe’s (for us, it’s Dunkers, yogurt star cookies and Tofurkey sausage), I’m really curious what items you have found to be priced more competitively at Trader Joe’s than anywhere else. Even when you factor in coupons.
So, TJ-shopping experts, I turn the floor over to you: Won’t you please divulge all your best buys at Trader Joe’s?
(P.S. In case you missed it earlier this week, I have started to do a weekly coupon match-up for Trader Joe’s on Mondays.)
