Shop Cheap is feeling feisty this week. Don't know why.
There are lots of inserts in Wednesday's paper. You won't find a selection like this anywhere: Sam's Club, Target, the Grocery Outlet, Sprouts, Food Source, Smart & Final and the IGA markets in the area. And we still have the Big Three - Raley's, Safeway and Save Mart. Shop Cheap is sharing what she likes from the Big Three. If you have other suggestions, feel free to join the comments.
