Trip to The Grocery Store

How Money Are You: Trip to the Grocery Store, Trader Joe's

"Trip to the grocery store" is a fun way to see how prices vary around the country, the differences between similar offerings at various grocery stores, and a rough way of tracking grocery prices. The questions come from a receipt from a recent trip to the store, and this one is from Trader Joe's in San Francisco. I love TJ's because it usually has much cheaper prices than other mainstream stores in the city and it offers good-quality items. How money are you?

Wow -- I had no idea TJ's was that affordable! Too bad there's not one near me :(

It's sad that I only got 4/5 considering I work in a grocery store, albeit not a Trader Joe's.

4 out of 5...not too shabby...I'm chalking up the -1 to sleep deprivation. I'm a devoted Trader Joe's shopper!

I love Trader Joe's! Their frozen food section is amazing.

LOL I guess that makes sense since I have never been to a TJ's and I am in Canada.

Wow, I guess too high! I love Trader Joe's. The closest thing to Trader Joe's in the UK is Whole Foods ... or Borough Market but good food in Europe is so expensive. :(

I hope we get a Trader Joe's around here soon. They sound so great.

I've never been to a Trader Joe's either, and I guess my 2/5 shows it! haha And geez, things are so much cheaper here in the midwest!

HOLY COW! I just got 5/5 and I've never stepped foot in or even seen a Trader Joe's IN MY LIFE! (Grew up in KY, now live in Nashville, TN). And that's after getting all of the questions wrong on the first grocery quiz!!! Good news is though, Nashville is getting Trader Joe's this fall, and I CANNOT WAIT! I will be the first one in the store if possible.

5/5 - I do shop at TJ's for a few things, but only the hummus is on my regular TJ's shopping list.

0/5! :( Never heard of Trader Joe's. I didn't realize it was the name of a store.

Damn I sucked and I shop at TJ's! I don't know anything about meat or dairy prices though.

How is their hummas? I've tried Athenos and theirs is pretty good. I don't have a TJ in my hood, so I travel after work on Friday and pick up fruit for the next week and food. Do you have a favorite?

I second guessed myself on the first one, couldn't decide between the crackers and the broccoli. I did surprisingly well, though, considering I'm really bad about paying attention to prices at the grocery store :)
