          There's not much I get at TJs...exclude perishable and it's practically nothing. Almond meal and some nuts, I guess. Tea if something looks jumps out at me. I like their chamomile. Oh...and I sometimes use their gluten-free dog treats as training treats for our dogs...they're easy to cut up in to small bits (not cheap though).

            My non-perishables there are (I definitely do not buy all this every trip!):

            organic coffee
            wine - 2 buck chuck sometimes but usually Pinot Noir -Black Mountain (I think - it's something mountain, and it's GOOD)
            macademia nuts - I buy one bag salted and one unsalted and mix
            85% chocolate lover's dark chocolate (Trader Joe's brand)
            pepitas - raw pumpkins seeds (no oil)
            macorna (sp?) almonds - with skin - roasted in olive oil (the other kind has sunflower oil)
            olive oil
            kalamata olives
            almond butter
            organic maple syrup
            organic kosher pickle slices
            organic vodka sauce (not totally primal -mainly for my husband)
            Lara bars - for when I'm in a pinch

                  TJ dry roasted pecan pieces--I love these and use them in lots of recipes; in a cooler your could get their terrific cheeses-- the blueberry vanilla chevre is incredible. I seem to buy mostly nuts, frozen meat, fish, berries, and fresh produce.

                    my kids freak out over their dried bananas. They're sliced thin lengthwise and the label says 'just bananas, flattened,' or something like that. It's like candy for them. The packs are about a buck fifty each, and I get about six or seven at a time.

                      Tuna in green curry or tuna in red panang sauce - it's sealed in a bag and packaged in a box. Okay, it has a tiny bit of sugar in it but it's sooooo good. Tastes just like Thai restaurant food and takes 30 seconds to heat up in the microwave. And is less than 2 bucks each. Of course, my kids wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole but that just means more for me!

                        I wonder if artichokes would last to Austin in a cooler. They're on special this week at TJs for $1/each. I've been paying $3. I love them, though.

                        They have a non-EV olive oil which I like for cooking. It's the only place I can find regular old olive oil.

                        Most of the stuff I like there is perishable, though.

                              I think 2 Buck Chuck is Swill...but many of their $5-7 wines are pretty decent.

                              Nicaraguan coffee, Dark Belgian chocolate covered almonds, chocolate covered espresso beans.

                                Seconding the Bay Blend coffee--my absolute favorite. They have pretty inexpensive canned coconut milk. Salted almond butter, which I can't find anywhere else--I can always find unsalted, but the salted is delicious. Two Buck Chuck Shiraz and Cabernet go really well when mixed 50-50 with their fruit-flavored sparkling water (calorie-free)--we call it "ghetto sangria" and it is our go-to summer alcoholic beverage.
