Found a deal today? Here's the place to share it!

Have a question that doesn't fit into any of the other threads? Here's the place to ask it.

FYI - My out of town guests started arriving yesterday for my dad's 80th birthday party on Saturday so I will not be around much at all on the blog from now through Sunday.  There will still be all the normal daily posts, except drug store deals.  I will not be posting any drug store deals at all this week. You may want to take a look at the drug store deal lists on  I will have back to school deals posted on Monday. 

Please post any great deals you find in the next few days. Have a great day everyone!

    For future TJ trips, you may want to sign up for the Trader Joe's Fearless Flyer to be sent in an email and/or paper mail. You can also view online current flyer.

    They have interesting seasonal offerings (similar to seasonal themes at Aldi) that are presented in an interesting format in the flyer.

    Fearless Flyer - A cross between Consumer Reports and Mad Magazine, The Fearless Flyer is kind of like a newsletter, a catalog and a bit of a comic book all at the same time. It's our chance to give you loads of interesting (hopefully) information about our products. And along the way, we like to toss in some witty (we try) tidbits and even a few old-fashioned cartoons.

    twoboysandadog, if you are going for the wine, my absolute favorite (I do not recall the name) is a pink sparkling in a very very pretty cut crystal bottle.

    Had some problems at the Wilson HT today.
    My angel soft tissue did not ring up 4/$5 and I didn't get the $3 off $10 for buying angel soft, lenders and welch's jelly. Had to go to customer service and it took a long time to get it straight.

    scoutmomof2, I didn't know that--but in describing TJ to someone the other day, I said it was to Whole Foods what Aldi's is to Harris Teeter...

    cookie butter is a mix of ground ginger snaps and almond butter. I really miss the macadamia butter that Marantha used to make. TJs and Whole Foods used to carry it but no more.

    jdouglas, you need to try their English Cheddar with carmelized onions. I use it in mac and cheese sometimes and also for grilled cheese. Or just plain or on a cra*ker. Their wine prices are also very good. Good enough that I am willing to try a new kind once in awhile. They are owned by the same company as Aldi's.
