Once And For All, This Is The Best Day To Shop At Trader Joe's

I made the mistake of a lifetime this weekend. I packed my family up in the car on Sunday and trekked it to Trader Joe’s. Seems reasonable enough, right? Wrong!

I should’ve known it wasn’t a good sign when I saw boxes and boxes of food waiting to be restocked on the sidewalk outside the store. Still, we soldiered on and made our way into the store, grocery list in hand. Red flag number two? No available shopping carts or baskets. Ugh, things were not looking good for us. I made a beeline for the orange juice, the first thing on my list, and what do you know? There’s literally not one container of orange juice. Whole milk? None of that either. We decided to test our luck on the bottom floor, but four out of the six things I went to buy were gone. You get the picture, right? The final straw, however, was when we attempted to pay for the few things we were able to find. The line wrapped around the store–twice! We quickly re-shelved everything in our arms and left.

But not before I asked a slightly frazzled employee, just when is the best day to avoid this madness. His answer? Tuesday or Wednesday. And if you think about it, it totally makes sense. Everyone is shopping for the week on Sundays and Mondays, so by Tuesday you’ll have people buying a few things here or there, but not completely stocking up. Later in the week, people will have started to run out of things from their Sunday shopping trip, so Tuesday and Wednesday are really the sweet spot.

If hitting up Trader Joe’s on a Sunday or Monday is simply unavoidable for you, that friendly TJs employee has two words for you: come early. “Like 8am!”

So there you have it–plan your next grocery shopping trip accordingly!
