Trader Joe’s is not just a grocery store. IT’S A WAY OF LIFE. Okay?
And, if we’re being honest, I’m a member of this tribe. I try to avoid it during busy hours, but I do like a lot of the stuff you can get at Trader Joe’s.
Two-Buck Chuck wine? C’mon…it’s pretty hard to beat. Oh, and I’m a big fan of their various cookies.
Are you with me?!?! Let’s get started!
1. It really is a maze.
My favorite fall maze is Thanksgiving shopping at Trader Joe's.

2. Now there’s an idea…
they really shouldn't call it trader joe's if they aren't willing to barter

3. Good move.
I was so close to fighting someone at Trader Joe’s just now but instead, I bought their snowflake-shaped pasta to calm down.

4. Might end up spending $500.
You think jumping out of an airplane is dangerous? Pfft…try going to Trader Joe’s when you’re starving to death.

5. Definitely not a bike or a canoe.
I've always wanted a car with a roof rack. But what would I put on it? The 5 different kinds of cheese I just bought at Trader Joe's?

6. Big rivalry.
i walked into trader joe's carrying a whole foods bag & everyone started west side story snapping

7. You gotta be aggressive in there.
Trader Joe's guy: Who wants to try our pumpkin pie?
Me: *barreling through the crowd, stiff-arming old ladies right and left* MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I DOOOOOOOOOOO

8. That’s my game plan.
One of the bleak bits of adulthood I didn't see coming was being genuinely excited to go to Trader Joe's in the middle of the day on your day off work, when the lines are less insane than usual

9. They are deeeeeeep.
I’ve had more emotionally revealing conversations with Trader Joe’s cashiers than I have with some dudes I’ve dated.

10. Too bad you’re wrong.
Sometimes I walk in to Trader Joe's and scream, "No one cares, WHITE PEOPLE! No one cares about Edamame Tofu Nuggets and Vintage Root Beer!"

11. You made it!
so honored to have made the Trader Joe's Fearless Flyer 30 Under 30

12. Kind of like the apocalypse.
I've never watched "The Hunger Games," but I have been to Trader Joe's the day before the Super Bowl.

Joke from the cashier at Trader Joe's (way funnier it had any right to be):
Where does a mansplainer get water? From a well… actually.

14. You did nothing wrong.
Kicked out of Trader Joe's again. Was triggered by a Nirvana song and threw a nectarine at a stranger
— Charlene deGuzman (@charstarlene) October 5, 2016
15. We’re all in love with the Trader Joe’s cashiers.
when the Trader Joe's cashier flirts with another customer I get jealous and buy a second frozen pizza so he thinks I'm having fun tonight
