I found yet another Trader Joe's review blog this week: The Trader Rater. It appears that they publish only very sporadically--like two posts so far this year.
Here's something different: A New Mexico mom reacted to her three kids' complaints about her lunch plan by taking them to Trader Joe's and having them buy items themselves--but they had to agree on the purchases and spend no more than $20. It turned into an impromptu lesson in both meal-planning and budgeting. They ended up with bread, peanut butter, jam, juice, sunflower seeds, and some fruit. See her delightful series of photos and running commentary in her Twitter feed from June 15, here. That's some excellent parenting right there, folks.
