Make a Difference This Summer With Smart & Final [SPONSORED]


Summer is right around the corner and San Diego is coming in hot with these temperatures!

I absolutely love hosting and hearing all the laughter from friends in our backyard! However, I don’t know about you, but I’m going to blame Mercury in Retrograde for my lack of desire to be creative with meals and snacks right now. 


This summer my goal is to keep it simple and fun. On top of my list is this yummy Frosted Watermelon snack! Best part is that Smart & Final is giving away $5 incentives, so I’ll definitely be using it towards purchasing these ingredients! 

This summer Smart & Final is not only making a positive impact on your wallet with savings, they are also making an impact during their annual in-store fundraiser for Olive Crest!

Olive Crest is an organization dedicated to preventing child abuse and treating and educating at-risk children. From now until July 6, customers at every Smart & Final location can donate, with ALL proceeds going directly to Olive Crest, in order to benefit at-risk and neglected children.

The successful Give $5, Save $5 incentive is back again this year following the record breaking fundraising campaign last year. Customers who donate at least $5 will receive a $5 off $25 coupon good for their next in store purchase at Smart & Final between July 7 – July 13.
