The Allure Of Trader Joes

My family still doesn't understand how I can spend over an hour, sometimes 2, shopping in Trader Joes stores that are usually the size of a break room for employees in a major supermarket.  I know every product, and which ones are seasonal.  I travel 50 minutes over the state line to fill my pantry with the staples and each family members' favorite product.  

The employees are helpful and happy.  Prices are low and the quality is high.  There are always samples to sample, and a monkey to find (for children only). 

And those shopping bags!

This is what my cart looks like when I forget my list!
