    I so wish we had a Trader Joe’s where we live. Sigh, we don’t, nor a Target or an entire list of other stores. Very tiny place. I am glad to hear that someone else has lost their “photo memory” besides me. lol You are doing great!

      Thanks for the encouragement! Do you have a smaller mom & pop catch-it-all store? I’m wondering how I would fare if I didn’t have access to “big” stores. I can almost forsee coupon withdrawal!

    What items are cheaper at Trader Joes? We have one about 10 miles away, so it isn’t convenient for day to day shopping, but maybe I need to start getting a few things there! I always thought it was more expensive because it’s all natural and organic.

      Hi Allison! Here’s a few items that are cheaper at TJ’s. My previous go-to store is in parenthesis:

      organic extra virgin coconut oil (amazon)
      sunflower seeds (in bulk section, safeway)
      extra virgin olive oil (costco)
      dried dates & prunes (walmart)
      kalamata olives (savemart)
      sundried tomatoes (savemart)
      feta (walmart)

      They also had several items that were only a few pennies more (balsamic vinegar, gouda cheese), and for all natural and organic, that’s not a bad deal. I hope to do more research this week and write a formal post soon with many more items. Like you, mine is about 10 miles away and not super-convenient, but it’s not out of the way when I have a decent list going!

    I’m with you on Trader Joes. My husband loves tortilla chips and I have started to feel weird about him eating all that GMO corn. A 2 pound bag of tortilla chips is 2.99! Their OJ is a great price too. I have to drive 22 miles to TJ but it is so worth it!

      Ooh, orange juice! I actually picked up a bag of their tortilla chips today, to go with the spicy hummus. Worth every mile driven!
