Trader Joe’s Favorites

I have always had a love for Trader Joe’s but with the new location opening up in Franklin my obsession has amplified. I don’t think I have ever been so excited for a store opening.  You know you are an adult when a new grocery store brings you ultimate excitement.  Many of you have asked for suggestions on what my must haves are. I know if you have not shopped with them before it can be slightly confusing on what to purchase.  As promised I made a master list of what I purchase at Trader Joe’s broken down by category. Screen shot and save for the next time you are shopping. Don’t forget as the seasons change so does Trader Joe’s inventory, so be sure to check out the seasonal selections.
