Trader Joe’s: 11 worst buys and their smarter alternatives

Felina’s Opinion: I would always prefer to pay a slightly higher price for particular items from Trader Joe’s that I know I would actually enjoy than pay less elsewhere and up not liking it, which in fact has actually occurred. I love certain other items that Whole Foods has to offer and certainly would not trade the items over for others at another store. Most people enjoy what they favor for reasons known only to them. Anyone is welcome to challenge their loyalty to what they like but I can almost guarantee that shoppers will always choose to like various items from various stores even if they have to pay a little more to enjoy it!  Felina Silver Robinson

 7. Beetle blast from the past: Volkswagen Beetle Classic to start at $20,195

VW is getting sentimental on us, or the automaker is seeing the sales success Fiat and Mini enjoy with retro-themed editions of the 500 and Cooper city cars. With an emphasis on fun and value – two traits that defined the Volkswagen brand – the new Beetle Classic coupe and convertible start at $20,195 and $25,995, respectively.

The Volkswagen Beetle Classic is aimed at other nostalgia-themed city cars, like the Fiat 500 and Mini Cooper.

The decades-long quest to save wild horses has run amok, creating a problem that even swooping helicopters, aging cowboys, camera-savvy activists, and millions of dollars can’t solve.
