Why do I shop from Trader Joe’s?

I rarely use coupons for grocery and Trader Joe’s has the best prices on many items that I buy regularly. I love the quality of their items, their processed foods have fewer ingredients. I enjoy that Trader Joe’s have limited variety on items which makes shopping a breeze. Fewer options on items also mean fewer isles to peruse i.e less time and energy spent for grocery shopping.

Where do you like to do your grocery and why do you like them?
