It’s not Cauliflower Gnocchi. It’s not Unexpected Cheddar. It’s not even Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend. In fact, Shea McGee’s go-to Trader Joe’s buy has nothing to do with the kitchen at all. In a recent Instagram story, she shared a peek into what her perfect work-from-home day entails, and it stars fresh flowers from the beloved grocery store. 

McGee set them up alongside a scented candle in her light-filled master bathroom, where the two details dress up her otherwise uncluttered black marble counters. 

TJ’s floral section has everything from fresh herbs (including basil and rosemary for around $3 a pot) to vibrant bouquets—though we’d take a page from McGee’s decorating playbook and opt for some goes-with-everything greenery like eucalyptus or baby’s breath. Elevate your sprigs with a chic vase and no one will be able to tell your colorful blooms only cost the price of a cappuccino.
