Trader Joe's shopping tips

I know many of my readers are Trader Joe's fans like I am, so I thought you'd be interested in these Trader Joe's shopping tips.

This is what we tend to buy at TJ's:
  • Flowers
  • Tortillas
  • Ginger-almond granola
  • Oatmeal (although bulk at Fred Meyer is cheaper)
  • Tea
  • Coffee, sometimes
  • Nuts
  • Dried fruit
  • Sauces: soy, curry, etc.
  • Chutney
  • Tuna
  • Indian lunches (chicken tikka masala)
  • Chicken breasts
  • Pizza (for the kids)
  • Cheese
  • Wine
  • Milk
  • Yogurt
  • Soup
  • Canned vegetables
  • Rice
  • Smart balance
  • Pasta sauce
  • Brown rice pasta
  • Free trade chocolate
  • Fondue (over the holidays)
  • Greeting cards
  • Tortilla chips
  • Black bean dip
I'm also partial to their mango and sticky rice dessert, mochi ice cream, and other desserts, although we don't buy them too regularly. They also have some amazing chocolate-filled croissants in the frozen food section--just thaw them and let rise overnight and bake in the morning. The Jo-Jos are awesome, too. How about you?
