I went to Trader Joe's yesterday. It was quite the trip as what is normally an hour drive was 9o minutes each way. I had good company and was without kids, so really, it was fine. :)
I found chicken sausages there 5 for $3.50 in 7 varieties. This is $1.50 less then Walmart, and you get an extra sausage.
I also got 8 whole wheat pitas for $1.60, much less then closer area stores.
My Better n' Peanut butter that I live on is $3.99/jar there, as opposed to $8!!! per jar at Dierbergs.
Trader Joe's also has a great price on dried fruits and wonderful variety.
They also have a great Multigrain Pancake Mix for $1.99. I made the whole box last night with a can of pumpkin and made 30 belgin waffles (thanks Patty!) and the boys are eating them up.
A new thing I found to try is premade, precooked frozen turkey meatballs. I know some of you just groaned, how could I not make these from scratch!!! I do, but takes a lot of time, and these are a healthy option in a pinch, or when it's just me and the kiddos.
So, even though it took me half a day to get this shopping done, we split gas, had a fun time chatting, and I stocked up on some items that I would love to make "staples" in our house, or less!
What do you like at Trader Joes?
