June 23, 2022


Team LIY

If having an emotional attachment to a grocery store is wrong, I don’t want to be right. It’s no secret our love for TJ’s runs deep here at LIY. If you know, you know. If you don’t know, RUN to your nearest Trader Joe’s and experience if for yourself! By now, I think we all can agree the aisles of Trader Joe’s are stocked full with some of the tastiest treats, easy to make meals, and all sorts of goodies you didn’t know you needed.
