The Best Item at Trader Joes Is Just 99 Cents (and It Isnt Edible)

The Best Item at Trader Joes Is Just 99 Cents (and It Isnt Edible)

Seriously. Its even better than everything bagel seasoning.

I used to be one of those people who dropped upwards of $6 on a single greeting card in pharmacies only to watch them be immediately disposed of at holidays, birthdays, and special occasionsa true heartache. That was until I stumbled upon a neatly tucked-away display near the floral section in my local Trader Joes with a custom calligraphy sign that says .99 cents (which any TJs fan would immediately check out, because, duh).

Turns out, Trader Joes has been slaying the greeting card game for quite some time now thanks to a unique partnership with a small greeting card producer. According totheir March 2018 Fearless Flyer, Trader Joes works with artists to create stunningly beautiful (and simpleno cheesy music box or glitter explosions) cards that are unique to each store.

One of my colleagues recently came across Valentines Day cardswhile scouring for the best V-Day treats at Trader Joeslast week. In the past, Ive frequently purchased birthday cards from Trader Joes, but they also create greeting cards for anniversaries, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Christmas, and Ive also seen general Congratulations cards that could work for a multitude of special occasions.

We work with a small greeting card producer who works directly with the artists who design the cards. This bureaucracy-free process keeps costs really low, which is how were able to offer such a terrific everyday price on our cards, Trader Joes website reads. Apparently, their cards will never be sold anywherebuta Trader Joesmeaning you wont be able to score one of their designs at Papyrus or Paper Source, for example.

I proudly display the card on my desk, so the wholeCooking Lightsquad can see it.

The retailer says that more than 17 million greeting cards were purchased last year alone, which has to do with more than just the price point. Whether you prefer a simple blank card or one of the custom options for holidays and special occasions, youll find yourself adding this .99 cent find to the list ofhealthy essentials youll pick up every timeyou head to Trader Joes.
