One of the nice things about living in this new city is that everything is so much closer. This includes a Trader Joe’s.
I haven’t been to a Trader Joe’s before, but I’m absolutely in love with Whole Foods (although not with their prices). So for this week’s grocery shopping the hubs and I went and checked it out. Well, I like it a lot better than “normal” supermarkets or the commissary. And I love their prices! It makes me feel so much better to buy and eat organic and fair-trade stuff, but I just couldn’t really afford it before. Not anymore thanks to Trader Joe’s :). I also got cruelty free shampoo and conditioner for $2,49 a piece. I also “splurged” on a bottle of white wine and some dark chocolate. Another plus: it’s only about 10 minutes from our house. My new way to go is most definitively organic and vegetarian.
Also, across the street from Trader Joe’s they’re opening a Whole Foods! I can not be happier at this point. Actually yes, I could be if I could find a new job some time soon so I get my own paycheck to spend at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods :)
Here’s just a few quick pics of the stuff we got today. It looks random, since I didn’t arrange the stuff to snap a pic. The hubs laid it all out on the counter because he thinks it’s easier to put it away that way. Anyway, I’m excited about the nut-chocolate spread :)
After this, I couldn’t resist to get a costume for Captain. I really wanted to dress him up as a cow, but the hubs put in his veto for that. So this is what it is:
