Trader Joe’s spreads the discounts down south!

Hi everyone!

I really hope some of these posts are helping some of you out! It would really mean a lot to me if you could give me some feed back!!!

So back to today’s post.

Ever heard of Trader Joe’s?! No?! Well let me inform you on what you’ve been missing!

Here’s some background, just incase you haven’t heard about it:

  • The first store opened in Pasadena, California in 1967.
  • Started out as a chain of convenience stores
  • Changed names from Pronto Markets to Trader Joe’s that same year
  • In 1988, they added a location in Northern California.
  • In the 90’s they spread to Arizona, Oregon, Washington State, Nevada and even Massachusetts.
  • Illinois, New York, North Carolina, and Georgia were next in the 2000’s
  • As of 2013, Trader Joe’s opened 400 stores across the country, and that number has grown since then.

Trader Joe’s pride’s itself on having the best value of food and prices that you won’t get anywhere else. One of the awesome things that Trader Joe’s practices is they actually buy all of their product directly from the supplier so customers can get the best price for what they are buying. Every product sold in the store is non-GMO (meaning they don’t have genetically modified organisms in them), ultimately making it safer for you to consume.

As of now, there are four locations in South Florida, including the brand new location in Boca Raton on Federal Highway, which if you didn’t know, is conveniently located a few miles from FAU’s Boca campus 🙂

Got a sweet tooth? One of Trader Joe’s most well known items is called ‘Cookie Butter’.

(Here’s a picture if you’re not yet on the band wagon)

Basically, the people who created Speculoos cookies decided to make it more fun to eat cookies by creating this spreadable version. Three different varieties are offered; Original and Crunchy – which costs $3.69 a jar and Cookie and Cocoa Swirl, which is $3.99 a jar.

Staying fit on a budget is easier than you think

Happy Friday Ya’ll!

As college students and someone who doesn’t have a 9-5 job, finding a sufficient place to work out without spending loads of cash may seem next to impossible.

Between the clothes, shoes, and work-out venue, most people spend at least $200 a month. Here’s some helpful tips on how to get great deals on work out clothes and shoes, and how to get a great work out… for FREE!

Famous Footwear is currently having a GREAT sale on their athletic training shoe brands like Nike, New Balance, Sketchers, Reebok and more! And yes girls, all the fun colors are available.

Need some new work out gear? Kohl’s always has a GREAT work out clothes section. If those are out of your price range, Kohl’s is always marking down their items which makes the clearance section your best bet!

Now you’ve got comfy shoes and some awesome new work-out wear… what’s next? Oh right, the work-out part 🙂

You always hear about how amazing cross-fit is, how many hours your friends spend in the gym, and the latest work-out fad, but you’re never able to experience those because of course, money is an issue.

I’ve found some incredible work-outs that will not only make you see results, but you won’t have to spend a DIME in the process! (And we all know that’s actually the best part, right?)

Warm-up: Do each for 20 seconds, and repeat 2-3 times.

  • Jump rope (or use your imagination if you don’t have one)
  • High knees
  • Butt kicks
  • Jump Lunges
  • Mountain Climbers

Once you’ve done that, its time for the real deal. I’ll go through some arm, leg, back, and abdominal work-outs that are easy to do at home!

For an arm work-out that requires no equipment, Health.com
has broken down a 10 minute arm toning work-out that will be sure to show results. With 10 reps of 5 different work outs which are demonstrated for you on the website, you will never need to use a weight again.

POPSUGAR has all kinds of ideas and printable workouts for at home use! This is one of the killer work-outs you can use to sculpt those legs… Look out Carrie Underwood!

The people at Tone and Tighten have got your back… literally. They have great work-outs to tone up your back, and get rid of that annoying backfat.

And last but certainly not least… the abdominals. 30 Day Fitness Challenge has been known to create some awesome month long work outs, and of course the ab work-outs are no exception. This site also offers tutorials on how to correctly do the exercises!

See budget babes?! No more excuses that you’re too broke for a gym membership! So get on it, and stop making the excuse “eh, I’ll start tomorrow” and start today!
