If Facebook offered a relationship status saying, "In love with Trader Joe's and it's starting to get weird," we'd be on it like white on rice. Over and over again, we've expressed our deeply rooted love for Joe — his dessert goods, his frozen meals, his skincare products... the obsession is real. In fact, there are certain things people only buy at Trader Joe's because they're better and tastier and, well, cheaper.
There's a reason Joe's is able to offer their products at such ridiculously low prices, all day, every day. By cutting out some of the middlemen when purchasing products — something that other stores don't do — TJ's saves major cash in the process. As a result, they're able to pass those savings along to you, the budget-savvy shopper. This makes us very happy. Because their prices are already as good as they can get, Joe's doesn't have sales or discounts — just affordable and delicious food items, 24/7.
It's these consumer-friendly price tags that keep us coming back for more and more. In fact, there are certain things we refuse to buy anywhere else. Even if they did cost more at Joe's, why would you shop anywhere where the employees aren't wearing Hawaiian shirts? I dare you to answer me.
Redditors recently offered their two cents on cheap-o products they'll only go to Joe's for. Here's what they had to say. Write this down.
