Trader Joe's is your key to a stress-free Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is just a couple of short days away, and if you're like us, you're now scrambling to purchase the fixings for your holiday meal.

Don't fret about not being able to defrost the turkey in time and whether the market will be out of yams. Just go to Trader Joe's, where the store restocks T-Day staples every single morning.

Trader Joe's is open today and tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. -- but it's closed Thanksgiving Day, so print out this page as a shopping guide, grab the car keys, and go!

10. Cornbread Stuffing
This box just needs butter and broth or water to make it good, but toss in some green apples and celery and make it great! $3.99.

9. Butternut Squash
Last year we bought a butternut squash and hacked at the poor thing for about an hour. This year, we bought this two-pound package of cubed goodness. For the easiest and most delicious side ever, simply place the cubes into an oiled pan and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Then toss, cover with foil, and place in the oven for 20 minutes. $4.99.
