    Smile I'm Here In California!

    I am here in California. We live just outside of Sacramento. If anyone is interested in trading coupons or being a money saving buddy, let me know.

    Yes, if I have seen a good deal at Ralph's and I have a coupon, I will shop there. I usually shop at Food 4 Less though. I always have baby coupons and all our granddaughters are getting to be big girls so, LMK if there are baby coupons you can use.

    I could really use Luvs diaper coupons if they are still around.

    I haven't seen them in ages though.

    We have Ralphs here in So. California and I used to shop there a lot with the double coupons but I have found that Stater Brothers is even cheaper and they don't double coupons!!!

    Lucky! I still haven't even seen one Krispy Kreme store anywhere around here! And they sound so good from everything I've heard!

    I've never heard of Stater Brothers. I guess I missed out, huh? Have either of you shopped at Food Source? I see ads from them but, I have never shopped there.

    I am in Southern California--in the city of Trabuco Canyon. I mainly shop at Ralph's and Costco. I never tried couponing but I think I am going to start! Ralphs always doubles coupons so I tend to save the most when I go there. I use a price book currently so I try to get the lowest price possible!

    I live in the Central Valley of California and we've got Ralphs, Big Lots, Sav-a-lot, Vons(our version of Safeway), Grocery Outlet, Food 4 Less, and Food Maxx. I haven't shopped at Ralph's yet, I usually do Food 4 Less, Costco, and Grocery Outlet. Is Ralph's really that good?

    Ohhh boy is it EVER

    If you have the right coupons for your family, and wait for the product to go on the right sale..and trade for extra coupons..you can get 100$ worth of groceries for around 20$ ..that's what I've been doing since last October

    When we used to shop at mainly ALbertsons and sometimes safeway..we spent around 500$ (BEFORE Our baby was born!) and it seemed like we never had enough food at the end of the week..

    NOW that the baby is here, we always have a stocked fridge/freezer and pantry..stocked HBA..plenty of wipes and diapers..and we spend around 150-200$ a month on average..

    Much of that is due to the double coupons at Ralphs, as well as free after rebate items I can get PAID to 'buy' when I use a coupon on the free after rebate items at places like Rite aid, longs drugs, walgreens etc..

    I don't have a Grocery Outlet here though, so I don't know how much better I would be able to do there than at Ralphs.
