Just got back with just about everything mentioned in this thread. Forgot the cooler, so no frozen stuff till next week. Going to try one thing a day. Today was the Uncured bacon jerky. Holy crap, it's so damn good. A little spicy for my liking, but damn......... not disappointed

LOL, I have a set in all my cars. The blue one and the red one (best one two punch). I stayed in Bellingham longer than usual and it was uber hot today. All I needed was some gel packs, but forgot.

I also have the huge-ass Costco cooler bag, but my all time favourite, hands down, is the Trader Joe's Blue cooler bag. Plus, it looks so nice.

Love seeing other people's favourites! That's it...I'm going down to stock up.
I just got these today following the suggestion. OMG! It's so fucking money!

I ate one... and then another few more... then I thought "damn I'm supposed to be on diet". Finally, I was like "diet? " and ended with 1/4 box left by the time I reached border.

Went this afternoon and checked out their "new items" end cap. They had these Dark Chocolate Cacao Nibs. I bought a bag. Sooooo good.

Dark Chocolate Cacao Nibs | Trader Joe's


Small bag, but $1.99 US



The kicker? It's processed in Canada!

Probably $5.99 here

If you like cookies, this is probably one of my favourites there. White chocolate pistachio butter cookies.

It's one of those items they hang from wherever. They are not on the shelves.

Did you ask one of the workers there? When I first looked for them, I couldn't find them, either.

Same. I had to ask one of the workers and it was hanging near the checkout pillars.

Bacon Jerky is a solid 10/10

I have to find a recipe somewhere, 'cause they're so addictive and they cost a lot. They weigh next to nothing and when you figure out how much per pound, it's scary.

Fricken Roam Mobility shit service. I ran into same problem last year. Scheduled it to start at 8:00 am, but it ended up taking until 2:30 pm. By that time, it was useless.

Wasted money.

When I didn't have any US phone, I used to go to public libraries or lobbies at hotels to surf and print coupons that I forgot to print out at home, lol.

Like those freebie coupons from Harbor Freight.


Oh, I go to Bellingham TJ's, of course, and the one on Roosevelt Street in Seattle's U-District.

Get an actual US sim card.

Ringplus runs promo from time to time with some crazy amount of data/text/talk for free. All you need is the first initial deposit (anywhere between 20~30USD, which stays in your account so you can buy add-ons). It runs on Sprint and you get LTE as well. Then it's free.

If you are interested, I have a spare Sprint sim to give away. I got it to get Ringplus but had to get a different one because it wouldn't work on my iPhone (it's for Samsung S6/S6E). And as it turns out, it's actually some problem from Ringplus and its MVNO setting with Sprint, which they still haven't fixed. So, only data works for now and I have to route the calling with a VOIP client and use data for phone calls. But I'm not complaining... 2GB of LTE data for free.

Just saw this!

Ha! I told you! You can't stop eating them! I always bring a couple boxes back, and they disappear so quick. I keep going back to the cupboard for one more...and one more... and one more...

I looked into ringplus and looks good. Free every 30 days. I guess for more data you have to add money in but only be used if you go over the limit which is rare for one day trips. which isn't bad at all.

I guess it doesn't hurt to try. i can take away the spare sim card if you still got it.
