TJs is the best – Whenever I see a deal, I tell people about it.... so it is pretty often that I mention Trader Joe's! Trader Joes is truly my favorite place to shop for most things food and wine-related. They have the best foods for cocktail parties with great prices. I always make stuffed mushrooms with Boursin for family and friends (holidays/gatherings), which elsewhere is literally DOUBLE the price. I don't know how they do it, but Trader Joe's has Boursin at 1/2 the price as every other place I've looked... and that's just the beginning of the savings. I love picking up TJs pita chips, dried fruits, nuts, etc., all perfect for cocktail parties. They also have great meals if you need something quick like pre-made pizzas and frozen fish.
To add to the savings, they have apples for less than 1/2 the price of everywhere else, and a huge savings in wine! This really makes them stand out from the rest. My favorite wines are from Trader Joe's. I like to "splurge" and get the $3.99 Pinot Grigio, which is my favorite kind... although the "two buck chuck" that is $3 is not bad either. Gotta love Trader Joes.
Awesome awesome awesome!! – Ahhh, Trader Joe's, how I love thee. This is my one-stop-shop for some weekend snacks and some inexpensive but tasty booze. Notorious for the 2buck-chuck (technically $3+tax in MA), TJ's also carries lots of other inexpensive wines that are worth trying. Love the Cline zinfendel ($8.99), the TJ's brand wine ($4.99), and the Riesling bottle with the sailboat on it ($3.99). They also have $6 sixpacks of beer and cider - we had Newton's Folly Cider, tasted like candy!! They also have cheap dried fruits (apricots, ginger, etc), and $1.99 bags of salad (so cheap! so healthy! sooo good!). The parking lot gets insaaaane on the weekends/at night, but it's also right off the 66 bus in Coolidge Corner. Love love love TJs!!
