Let’s talk shopping. Specifically, let’s talk TJ Maxx and Marshall’s. Though you’re probably familiar with the discount chains’ stock of wallet-friendly clothing, shoes, and accessories, I’m about to introduce you to a little-known-but-awesome section in the back of the store: the specialty food aisle.
It is here that I was introduced to such delicacies as Brad’s Kale Chips, Justin’s Nut Butters, plantain chips, coconut oil, and a bevy of other healthy treats at (obviously) crazy-low prices. Not only is this section perfect for stocking up on your favorite staples, but also for trying new, weird, or otherwise questionable items on the cheap! Coconut palm sugar for $8.99? Sure. Fiber-loaded off-brand snack bars for $5? Totally. Hemp protein powder? K. That maple almond butter stuff you’ve heard so much about but still haven’t tried? Yeah! Just buy it, because even if you hate it, you wasted mayyyybe $10. Bonus: Because inventory is constantly changing at stores like these, it’s always a treasure hunt. Skip the artisan olive oil in favor of quinoa crisps and thank me later. It’s a Skinny Breezy trick of the trade!
