Elle’s Edit: What to Get at Trader Joe’s

America loves Trader Joe’s. I love Trader Joe’s. 

Trader Joe’s truly is a gift from God. There is honestly everything that you could possibly need at a reasonable price. I am loyal to Whole Foods however whenever I can make the trip to the closest Trader Joe’s I make it! It can be an overwhelming place especially in the city and on the weekend. This past weekend I was waiting in line for FOURTY mins and even though my patience was running thin, I still felt like it was worth it. Since the grocery store is so big I wanted to share with you all what I purchased this past weekend and what my favorite things are in the store.

Flowers- Trader Joe’s  has some incredible flowers at such a great price. I try to buy myself a bouquet of flowers whenever I make it to TJ’s because they are beautiful and last a long time!

Crackers- these are so good along with the Rosemary ones. I hate olives but for some reason I love these!

PB Puffs- guys, run and get these. They are 99 cents and are DELISH.

Oats- I love making Oatmeal when the weather gets colder and this is perfect to keep in the pantry.

Honey/Coconut Chips/Peanut Butter- staples for oatmeal and you can’t beat the prices.

Salad Mix– the salad mixes come in clutch if you are looking for an easy lunch or dinner option. I always pair this with some of the pre-packaged grilled chicken.


Other items I love but not pictured/purchased:

Fruit: oranges, apples, bananas

Veggies: salad greens, little cucumbers, carrots, sweet potato ribbons, brussel sprouts

Nuts: I buy the almonds and trail mix and keep it at my desk at work


Frozen: pizza/flatbreads, fruit for smoothies, veggie burgers, and turkey burgers

Dried mango: such a yummy snack

Sweet potato tortilla chips

Black beans and garbanzo beans

Everything but the bagel seasoning and chili lime seasoning (my new favorite)


What are your Trader Joe’s must haves?
