    Shop here on a weeknight if you're a contortionist. Pretty crowded.

    When crowded, hit the middle of the store and then get in line. Shop the perimeter while making your way to the registers.

    Go 30mins before closing. They'll be sold out of some inventory but you won't have to deal with a line to check out.

    Great selection of cheap, healthy produce and products, but long lines. Come on hump day at opening to 10 AM or at closing for the best lines. Wait in the outer line for best access to fresh produce.

    Prices great for the quality. Nice atmosphere and staff. As for the line, you just have to know when to go. I usually go before 12 on Wednesdays - very short to no line. I will regret sharing this....

    Make sure to grab everything you need from the interior of the store then shop the exterior while you're in line. Go to the line farthest to the right if you need dairy items.

    Come either right at opening (8am) or mid afternoon (3pm). Gets crowded later in the morning and then packed before dinner.

    The guy in front of me in line is a genius. He walked into the store and immediately joined the (very long, as usual) line with a completely empty cart and is shopping from the line as it progresses.

    Trader Joe's is great. This one gets busy. I pick up the stuff I need from the middle of the store and grab items from around the outside while I'm in line. Patience is virtue!

    Came on a Wednesday when it was raining (expecting a shorter line) - BIG mistake! Line started when I entered the store. My advice: get your frozen items LAST if you can!

    You can get all the essentials in the outside line - vegetables, fruit, bread, cheese, meat, dairy, juice and beer. The pro move is to bring a friend to run around for the rest while you stay in line.

    I don't care how fast the lines move. They are the equivalent of running a marathon. The more people you bring the better. You can each do a task while someone waits online. True meaning of tag team

    Pro Tip 1: Go with someone who stands in line while you shop. Pro Tip 2: Shop the middle aisles first. Then stand in the outside line and shop veggies, bread, cheeses, meats, cereals and dairy.

    The frozen mango chunks, crunchy cookie butter, and the ginger snaps are all must-haves. Obviously because they're TJ's extremely healthy options

    The strategy for rush hours is to have a friend wait in line, while you fetch groceries for the cart.

    For items that sell out, call in advance and they'll set it aside. Then, keep adding to the list. Before you know it, they'll have done all your shopping for you!
