As much as we love Trader Joe's, we have to confess that there are people who love this grocery store even more than we do. I'm talking about the fans who post haul videos of their shopping excursions. Not only are these clips a fun way to pass your Thursday afternoon — who doesn't want to know what everyone is putting in their shopping cart? — but you can also unlock some serious grocery shopping secrets.

What's a Trader Joe's haul video? you ask. It's just like a traditional haul video where shoppers display the results of their most recent retail excursion, but these videos are even better because they're actually full of affordable grocery shopping advice and Trader Joe's products you may have missed.

There are haul videos that cover everything from vegetarian products to the best cheap snacks to grocery finds for broke college students. These videos are the secret to getting out of your snack aisle rut, embracing breakfast options you didn't even know existed, and tracking down the vegan finds hiding out in the pantry section.

Not sure where to start? Here are three videos that will have you rewriting your grocery list.
