College Trader Joe's Haul: Grocery Haul Under $40

Recently I have been obsessed with watching people's grocery hauls on Youtube! It is always helpful to see what other people buy. As a college student I can be a little lost in the grocery store!
I went grocery shopping today and I decided I would share what I got! Keep in mind that I grouped the items in the pictures below by what section of the store they can be found!

Nacho Cheese Tortilla Chips $1.99 - I'm not a huge chip person but I love Doritos so I guess these are kind of the Trader Joe's version of Doritos. They don't taste exactly like Doritos but, they get the job done!

Brown Rice Cakes $2.99 - I know rice cakes may sound a little gross to most of you but, I love them as a snack. I like to eat mine with peanut butter and bananas. Rice cakes are great to keep in a dorm room because they stay fresh longer than bread!

Black Beans $.79 - I feel like these will be great with some brown rice and salsa for a quick meal!

Apple Strawberry Bar $.69 - Ever since I was a little kid I have been obsessed with fruit leathers so I picked up a couple. Most people think they are gross but I love them!

Peanut Butter Chip & Oat Bars $2.49 - Normally when I shop at Trader Joe's I love to but the PB&J bars. This particular Trader Joe's was sold out so I decided to try these instead! I have yet to try them; I will keep you posted!

Peanut Butter $1.99 - I am obsessed with peanut butter so I always like to keep some in my dorm! Normally I buy the Skippy Natural kind but I decided to try this one from TJ's and it tastes the same!

Lady Alice Apples $2.99 - I usually keep apples in my dorm so I decided to try the Lady Alice kind!

Cucumber $1.49 - I don't know what to say about this one lol. I just eat cucumber slices that's all. 

Harvest Chili $4.49 - This item is not produce but it can be found in the produce section. I am obsessed with chili so now that I don't have a kitchen in my dorm I always want it! I have heard great things about this chili!

Baby Carrots $1.49 - I got these to go with a dip you will see in the next photo! 

Bananas $.19 - I always keep bananas in my dorm for snacks and smoothies!

Spinach & Kale Dip $3.99 - If you've ever had the Hidden Valley spinach dip recipe you know it's amazing. This dip from TJ's tastes exactly like it! This one is just a little but healthier!

String Cheese $2.99 - String cheese is always a good snack so, I like to keep it in my dorm!

If you are a super busy person or college student (or both like me) the frozen section at Trader Joe's is everything! I normally like to get a few more things but the store was pretty low on my favs.

Brown Rice $3.49 - I love to have rice in my dorm for those hard times lol. Brown rice is my favorite!

Frozen Mango $2.49 - I love mango in my smoothies or just as a snack! I always keep frozen mango in my freezer!

Chicken Burritos $2.69 - I always keep some type of microwavable burrito in my freezer. I love the bean and rice one from TJ's but the store was sold out. I thought I would give these a try!

I hope you all enjoyed this post!
