Trader Joe’s is in Colorado. I’m thankful. They’ve been with us for a while now (two or three years), and they are a mighty fine store.
Decent value pricing, often healthy ingredients, a wide variety of flavors not available at the big chain supermarkets — and tasty food.
Even though I’m an anti-junk mail person, I love their flyers. Creative writing abounds. And they are effective — I often buy stuff as a result. One time I even cut out the little built-in shopping list and checked the stuff I wanted and bought most of the items the next time I was in the store.
The only thing about Trader Joe’s I’m happy/sad about is that there is one on my way home from work… it’s all too easy to make a detour and buy little snacks I really don’t need.
Take time to be thankful today for something in your life. It worked for me. (I was going to write a complainy blog post — but I listened to my own blog post from last week, Positive.)
