I am not sure how my ?lucky thing? evolved. Throughout my life I have always seen and actually really believed that certain things were a sign of good luck:

? I always stop to pick up a ?heads up? penny lying on the ground and make a wish

Ode to Joe

It was when we moved to San Diego in 2001 that I first visited a Trader Joe?s grocery store, and while I immediately appreciated the friendly pricing, it took a good year before I was totally converted. That?s about how long it took me to hone in on my favorite, and now essential, TJ items.

I have also discovered that those who find fault with the TJ concept have not really ?experienced? Trader Joe?s. They?ve tried it out once or twice and then complain that:

It?s too small.

Exactly, why I like it.
