I love Trader Joe’s! If you haven’t been there, you need to change that, soon. The closest Trader Joe’s is an hour away from me, and while the trip may be long, it is totally worth it. Especially since there is a Starbucks across the street.
When I’m preparing for a shopping trip, I often get out a pad of paper and a pen, and go through all of my cabinets to see what I need, and make a list, I love lists. When it comes to Trader Joe’s, I typically buy more than I need, because it is so far for me and I can’t make the trip regularly. I look for sales and try to keep track of my spending regularly, so I try to keep this sheet handy when I’m planning my trips.
So what do I buy most often? What are the “must-haves” of Trader Joe’s? Download the Ultimate Trader Joe’s Shopping List document for easy printing. While this is not an exclusive list of all of the wonderful things Trader Joe’s has to offer, it does represent a lot of what I buy. Check this post regularly for updates to the shopping list and please leave comments if you would like something added or feel I’ve missed a true treasure!
Update 3/20/16: I went to Trader Joe’s yesterday and found some more goodies! I have updated Ultimate Trader Joe’s Shopping List now available! There is also an Ultimate Walmart Shopping List available now as well.
