Trader Joes

Trader Joes! This afternoon, Anna, Nat, and I went to Trader Joes to get some groceries from the coming week. Located in Foggy Bottom right near GWU, it was a pretty short walk from Dupont Circle. Because most of the products at TJs are Trader Joes brand and not from other companies, their prices are very affordable. The produce is fresh and the pre-made frozen meals are delicious. My favorites from Trader Joes are the Mediterranean Hummus and the cottage cheese. YUM! We all got a week's worth of groceries for around $50. The line was a bit long, but it moved quickly and we got 5 cents off of our receipt because we brought our own bags. Unfortunately we walked in the wrong direction on Pennsylvania to get to the metro station so we ventured a few blocks into Old Georgetown. It was cute, but way too cold to make 6-block mistakes so we quickly turned around and went the right way. The metro was a little slow due to track construction at Rosslyn so it took a little while to get back. Now our fridge is loaded up with good food to begin our second work week. Megan and Julia were entering Trader Joes as we were leaving and came back shortly after us -- Megan bought a pound of chocolate! I am looking forward frequenting TJs on a weekly basis though I heard it's best to stay away on Sunday and Monday evenings when many GWU students are getting their weekly groceries. The address of the one and only Trader Joes in the District is:

1101 25th St NW
Washington, DC 20037
