I love Trader Joes

I love their packaging.
I love their prices!
I love that they make me want to recycle and eat organic.
I love their free samples.
I love their employees {SO nice}
I love their greek honey yogurt.
I love their lava cakes.
I love their french soap.
I love that their french soap is called Trader Jacques.
I love that the best batch of chocolate chip cookies I ever made was made with their chocolate chips.
I love their Maui BBQ short ribs.
I love that their wine selection takes up 1/4 of the entire store.
But most of all I love their fresh flowers

{I promise I'm not paid by Trader Joes and that I truly do love them}

I get so overwhelmed every time I go in that store. I don't know what to try or buy's just a sensory overload. I spent so long admiring their pretty flowers the other day. I should have brought some home.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Trader Joes too!!! Their prices are awesome and they have sooo much food that is just better than the big supermarkets here. Nothing super about them especially when compared to Trader Joes. Even their frozen food section Rocks Our House!

Brandi - no need to be overwhelmed! It's actually much less crazy than a regular grocery store. And next time get the flowers, I swear they last twice as long.

Latte Girl - I LOVE their frozen stuff too! Seriously best place to shop EVER

Ha! I'm so with you on this. I love their artistic signs all over too. And their flowers are the best! My husband and I were just talking about how my TJ flowers lasted 2 weeks and the one's he bought me for Valentine's Day (too expensive) lasted a few days! Go Trader Joe's!

Their employees ARE the nicest! I worked retail for 6 year and can pinpoint a nice-because-i-have-to-be employee, but i swear to god. The people at TJ's are so genuinely nice it boggles my mind!

I WISH they were here. Sigh. Big fat sigh.

I adore Trader Joe's! I love their appetizer's. Sadly, we have no TJ's over here in Sweden... Reason enough to move back home.
