    I would get some of the 1.99 beer for my husband. He works so hard so I can be a stay at home mom. He deserves a beer!

  2. kimme says:

    I LOVE Trader Joe’s. I would buy those frozen indian dinners and Thai sauces in jars. Delish. Thanks for the chance!!

  3. Bridget says:

    I’ve never been to Trader Joe’s, but I am sure I would love to shop there. I’ve never met a shop I didn’t like.

  4. Ginger says:

    Never been to Trader Joes but I would love to try it out. I would probably give the card to my mom as she’s coming to help me move. It would make her whole year!

  5. Brianna S says:

    I would probably pick up some frosted star cookies that I’ve had before and loved. I haven’t really shopped at Trader Joe’s cause its a drive but would definitely make the drive for this.

  6. Elaina says:

    I would buy fruit and snacks. They have GREAT snack selections!! The all natural Funyans(sp?) are my favorite!!

  7. Marla says:

    What wouldn’t I buy? I love Trader Joe’s! I’d probably get some frozen fruits and veggies, some cereal bars (my kid loves them), some organic milk and yogurt, and some salsa. Thank you for hosting this giveaway!

  8. Star says:

    I’ve never been, so I’m not sure what I would buy, but I can only imagine the options! I think I would start by looking at cheeses!

  9. Sonia says:

    Would definitely buy their Spicy California Roll sushi, the Mixed Greens blue cheese, dried cranberry, and pecan salad, and Joe O’s!

  10. Michelle L. says:

    I’d splurge on saffron for sure! $5.99 for a fraction of an ounce…but the aroma saffron is irreplaceable. I’ve been eyeing the saffron forever and it would be such a wonderful indulgence.

  11. Geneva says:

    I would buy some of the veggie/fruit juice my hubby loves, some frozen Indian dinners, and other faves we have there.

  12. Samantha D says:

    I am IN LOVE with Trader Joes – I actually buy most of our groceries there now! I love everything they have! With a gift card, I would stock up on baking supplies!!

  13. Julie says:

    Probably produce. I love Trader Joe’s. Oh, and I would get my husband some Jo-Jo’s I think they’re called. They’re TJ’s brand of Oreos. He loves them!

  14. Cass says:

    I would get their chicken sausage which is absolutely great. They have about 5-6 different kinds. I would also get some of their popcorn.

  15. Jessie says:

    I friended you AND send your blog site to all of my savings friends! 🙂
    I just started shopping at Trader Joes as Nashville just got one a year or so ago. I think I would benefit from this because, like you, I am a student and struggling to get by. I am helping provide families with adopted children meals every week and I will also be having Thanksgiving this year at my place with family and friends and would LOVE a Trader Joes gift card to help me out with that shopping expense. I have been “couponing” for about 6 months now and I love it. I have learned many different ways to save! I will continue to send around your blog to friends who enjoy or like to save! (Who doesn’t??) 🙂

  16. Carrie says:

    I don’t know what I would buy since I’ve never shopped there. But I’ve heard great things about it, so I would love to get a try.

    (My mom has bought wonderful chocolate covered coffee beans at Trader Joe’s…maybe I’d buy some of those. :-))

  17. Sherita says:

    OMG….what wouldn’t I buy! I would most likely buy the jasmine rice, chicken sausage, the Naan indian frozen bread, and the Vitamin E oil…

  18. takingachance says:

    Oh, I’ve got just the best way to spend that $20.

    Last month, my mom missed out on the 45min roadtrip to Trader Joes, so, She’s down to 1box of her favorite Macaroni & Cheese,
    I’d let her fill the cart with Trader Joes Organic Macaroni & Cheese, stash some for winter and share some with my aunts :). Oh, and a small bag of pistachios for the road!

  19. Boriana says:

    Their cranberry juice is phenomenal! No sugar or additives 🙂 I also love their marinated grilled eggplant, it saves so much time!

  20. Heather says:

    I’d get some of their yummy semi-prepared food. I’m trying to save on groceries and cook everything myself, but this would allow me to splurge and have few meals!

  21. Lorna says:

    I would buy some more roasted seaweed packages along with some more of their bags to tote things home with maybe a lunch bag also. 🙂

  22. Sarah M. says:

    I won’t lie… everything would come from the sweets section. Those dark chocolate caramel with sea salt bars are to die for. And the TJ Cats cookies. yummmmy.

  23. Emily says:

    Love Trader Joes!! I would buy a bunch of fruit, lots of cooking supplies like their wheat flour, and dried fruit and nuts.

  24. Brittany says:

    I would give it to my sister who lives in california & lovesss trader joes. I don’t get to see her that often since I live in New York so I like to send her gifts she can use. 🙂

  25. Michelle says:

    I would buy some of their Tea Tree Tingle shampoo and conditioner! I’d also probably get a package of their frozen fettucini alfredo, because it is delicious!

  26. Lauren says:

    I’d buy some of their Wasabi Flavored Seafood Snacks, some frozen Garlic Naan Bread, and the frozen Wild Mushroom and Truffle Flatbread Pizza. Delicious!

  27. Joi Thomas says:

    My children have food additive allergies and there are so many great things at Trader Joe’s that i could used the money for.

  28. Allison says:

    I would buy some 2 buck chuck, pasta, sauce and salad fixings and cook a romantic dinner for my husband.

  29. Laura says:

    I’ve never been to Trader Joe’s either, but it’s not that far away, if I win it’d be fun to see what they have. I’ve heard good things about them.

  30. joy mckinney says:

    I would buy flowers,(ty trader joe for an inexspensive wedding floral deco for my special day, i always recommend to friends) and your fresh fruit, oh yes and your strawberry jam.
