Trader Joe's- it's everyone's favorite grocery store, right? Well, it's mine at least! Cost effective, fun and with the best staff ever (am I right?), really they had me at free coffee samples. Even though our closest TJ's is nearly 40 minutes away, we still make regular stops for many of our real food family staples. And if there is anything I KNOW you mamas love, it's a peek into my grocery cart. So today, I thought I'd share with you 12 of the things I ALWAYS buy at Trader Joe's.

Having a well-stocked pantry means meals come together, and fast, in my house, even if we're low on fresh foods. But it took us some time to figure out WHAT to keep on hand so we always have quick and easy real food meal starters, ready to go.
