My December Trader Joe’s haul (video)

Happy Thursday!

It has been awhile since I’ve done my weekly grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s (7 weeks to be exact).  I’ve been placing our orders online with Harris Teeter instead because they gather everything together and bring the bags out to my car.  I don’t even have to enter the store which is an incredible gift when you have a newborn.

As convenient as online shopping may be, I’ve been missing Trader Joe’s in a major way, so I headed off to do some shopping there the other day.

Rather than taking photos of what I bought, I filmed a video.  It’s not going to win an Academy Award or anything, but I think it will do. 😉

There were some more items as well, but I forgot to pull them back out when I shot the video:

  • Wine
  • Butternut squash
  • Kiwi
  • Pineapple
  • Organic chicken
  • Sliced turkey
  • Kale
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Greek yogurt
  • Honey
  • Earth Balance
  • Roasted mixed peppers
  • Frozen mango

I think that I might start to make one big grocery shopping trip at the beginning of each month and then pick up some produce each week.  I’ll have to think that plan over some more though because it will require planning one month’s worth of meals at one time.

Do you shop all at once, or do you make several trips to the store each month?

Have you tried anything new from Trader Joe’s lately?  As you’ll see in the video, I tried something new, but it ended up being kind of a disappointment.  It’s my own fault though for not reading the label on the jar before I bought it!

Please let me know what you think of the video style posting.  If it’s a hit, I’ll make some more!
