The Best & Worst Deals at Trader Joe's (Page 9)


What to Buy: Wine

Cheap wine—so cheap in fact that when California stores began selling Charles Shaw wines at $1.99 a bottle, the brand earned the nickname Two-Buck Chuck.

For anywhere from $6 to $10 you can get a good bottle of wine—you would be surprised at how good it is. And then for $10 to $20 you get bottles that would be $20 to 30 elsewhere.”
