FWIW, I haven't found anything there that is more than it's equivalent at HEB/Target.
Update: the 4 pack of artichokes is $2.29! Also picked up chocolate covered gingerbread cookies, yum! But, they were out of fire roasted corn, wah!

All I can say is THANKS to TJs. All I needed in my daily commute to 281 south was more congestion trying to get to 281.

Went this morning with a friend at 8am. We were able to shop, explore, exchange ideas and still be home before 9:45am! I LOVE going early when it is not busy!

It has a flavor similar to gingerbread.
Several people I know raved about the cookie butter, so that was one thing I made sure went in our cart (have been to TJ's elsewhere many times, but have never seen cookie butter at one before). I was surprised when we got home to find that it was really just the same as Biscoff spread, which has been around for a while. Guess I didn't notice the Speculoos part of the name. Regardless, I love Biscoff spread (and have enjoyed Biscoff/Speculoos cookies since our time living in Europe); therefore, I love Cookie Butter as well!

There are tons of ideas out there for using the spread (although honestly, eating it straight from the jar is lovely), including Biscoff Spread Recipes.

Okay, I don't know Biscoff from Speculoos from Shinola. LOL. BUT! I thought they tasted just like Pepperidge Farm Bordeaux cookies. Oh my!

January!

MID-morning or MID-afternoon is likely to be slower. Avoid lunchtime and "I'll just stop on the way home from work" time.

I know I posted earlier, probably just didn't hit the send button. We went around 10:00, got a good parking spot and went right in. I only spent $49.03 so I must have missed a few things. I did get one of the canvas shopping bags and LOVE it. It's huge and durable. I see many more in my future. We did get a few bottles of the 2 buck chuck because we like it. Didn't really look at the fresh stuff or frozen because we weren't going straight home.

I don't see it being a regular thing because of the distance but will be going back a few times a year.

TJ's have these little gingerbread man cookies with white fudge on them. They are sold in a box, and they had a bunch over near the fruit area. Before the holiday season is up, I'd HIGHLY recommend trying these. Only warning is they are guaranteed to add a couple of numbers to the ol' scale. FANTASTIC!
