[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Who doesn’t love finding good deals? I love reading about the hidden treasures people find popular stores, because then I go there with a list in hand of all of the best stuff!

A little while back, I did a similar post for the best buys from Costco and it was a hit around here! I thought that one of my other favorite stores, Trader Joes, would be the next one of the list to do:)

Best Buys At Trader Joes

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”3702″ img_size=”550×450″ alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3700″ img_size=”350×450″ style=”vc_box_outline”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Wines” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Montserrat%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]Trader Joes has some of the best wine out there for cheap! Some of them are really hit or miss, but the Charles Shaw reds have never failed me. I actually have multiple reviews of Trader Joes Wines on my wine page, and here is one specifically for the Charles Shaw wine. It taste like good wine, even though you pay under $3 for it! That is a “best buy for sure”!

They also have tons of organic wines and wines from smaller brands that you couldn’t normally get your hands on elsewhere, which I am a huge fan of as a wine lover. (You can find a review I did of one of these organic wines here)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3699″ img_size=”350×450″ style=”vc_box_outline”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Specialty Cheeses” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Montserrat%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]Trader Joes has an amazing gourmet/specialty cheese selection. They have every kind that you could ever want, plus three different flavors of that kind. The brie is one of my favorites, along with the Gouda and the huge varieties of blue cheese that they have.

Obviously, because I love wine, I have to love cheese right?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3701″ img_size=”400×450″ style=”vc_box_outline”][vc_single_image image=”3716″ img_size=”350×450″][vc_single_image image=”3717″ img_size=”350×450″ alignment=”right”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Seasonal Goodies” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Montserrat%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]Trader Joes always has some amazing seasonal displays. Right now for fall, they have pumpkin EVERYTHING. They have multiple displays with walls of pumpkin products, and they change these every season.

My favorite finds from this section have got to be the pumpkin cookie butter, the pasta sauce with pumpkin and butternut squash, and the pumpkin coffee! If you are a fan of the Speculoos Cookie Butter, go try out the Pumpkin kind… I promise you will love and hate me at the same time. Love because it’s amazing, and hate because you will want to eat the entire jar (try it on honey graham crackers).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3703″ img_size=”350×450″ style=”vc_box_outline”][vc_single_image image=”3718″ img_size=”350×450″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Fresh Selections: Salads and Hummus” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Montserrat%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]Their premade salad selection is ridiculous. They have so many interesting and delicious looking selections for a pretty decent price. These would be great for easy weekday lunches, or to take with you to work.

I can’t say enough good things about their hummus selection. If you love hummus, go to Trader Joes! The Cilantro Jalapeno hummus is the best I’ve ever had. You can find for about the same price as you can at the grocery store, but theirs is so much better and the flavors are so unique.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I am also in love with their Meringue cookies, but apparently they are switching suppliers and were out when I was there… saddest day ever.

Do you love Trader Joes like I do? What are you “must have” items when you go there?

*Cheers to finding the best buys at our favorite places*
