    Smart & Final! is one of my favorite places to shop, especially when it comes to entertaining. It's the perfect place to start if you are planning a family BBQ this year but even when planning a nice romantic dinner for that special someone, it's a great place to shop.

  • My wife and I don't have kids - so our dog, Niki Belle, is our fur baby and child in probably more ways than a couple in a similar position might understand. When we first got her, we nervously prayed that she would be ok with doing road trips and were blessed that she indeed did not get car sick and was happy to curl up and relax or sit and look out the window.
