As you may know I LOVE Trader Joe’s – here are some of the benefits!
It’s cheap! The prices are nationally fixed – meaning, anywhere you go (even NYC, LA, and San Fran) the prices are the same (and very cheap!)
They have stores all over the country and are opening new ones all the time
They’re so responsive to their customers, they’re always taking new food and meal requests
They’re great with returns – I returned an open bag of cat litter Cat didn’t like the other week
When it comes to convenient food, who doesn’t love pizza?!
