Wowza. How do I even start this?
After 6 weeks of searching for a job, I have bittersweet news... I found a job in Southern California, which means my family will have income again, but also means our family is relocating to Southern California. My beloved little blog, Arizona Savings is coming to an end.
This blog has served so many purposes for me. It has kept a record of the grocery savings I work so hard to get, a way to find deals, a conduit to share those deals with all of you, etc. But I also have gained friendships through this online hobby of mine. So many of you have offered encouragement and love through these past tough 6 weeks for my family as we searched for work. I appreciate all of you so much. In the future, I hope to launch a similar blog for the shoppers of Southern California. Heaven knows with their inflated prices, they need deals more than anyone!
I am already sad thinking about leaving my favorite grocery stores and this competitive grocery market. I will have Vons (which is a sister store of Safeway) and Albie's, but I have to say goodbye to Fry's & Bashas. I'll also still be able to shop at Target, Walgreens, CVS, Wal-Mart, and I am adding Rite Aid! As sad as we are to leave our good friends here in Arizona, we are excited to be moving back near family and where both my husband and I grew up.
I will leave this blog open because I feel like couponers can still benefit from the information I've posted. Plus, when I am ready to launch my new California coupon site, I will post that here as well, so you can follow my shopping adventures on the west coast. If you want to keep in touch with me, stay friends on Facebook and I'll let you all know when the new site is ready.
Okay, the sad news is over... now let's blow out the end of Arizona Savings with some give aways!

9 Month Supply of Nature Made Prenatal Multivitamin with DHA
The winner of give away #3 will receive a 9 month supply of Nature Made Prenatal Multi-Vitamins with DHA. Nature Made Prenatal Multivitamins with DHA is the only OTC Prenatal Multivitamin + DHA in one single softgel per day. I personally LOVE that these prenatal vitamins are softgel. Any pregnant woman knows how awful prenatal vitamins taste, which does not help with nausea.
