Pay It Forward: A Smart & Final Thanksgiving


I am very fortunate. I’m healthy, I have a wonderful family, CycleGuy comes home 2 – 3 times a month from his job in the Bay Area, BabyGirl is the light of my life, and so much more. Unfortunately, the economic reality for many is that while they have so much to be thankful for a traditional Thanksgiving meal may not be possible. For one family, I’m able to make it happen.

As you may know, I publish the weekly Smart & Final coupon matchups for the Arizona area. I am also a Smart & Final Smartie. That means I am one of a select few bloggers that helps to promote Smart & Final and share all the benefits of this great warehouse-style store. I’ve been a Smart & Final shopper for years (back before they had the shopper loyalty cards, then when they started using them, and now you don’t need one!). I’ve always found great deals and like being able to buy either in quantity or just enough for a small household.

I believe every day is one for giving thanks. But, on this one day every year families gather together and friends share in the joyous meal to give thanks. Thanks for so many different things. Here in the Phoenix area there are many families facing hard financial times, and it is my pleasure to make sure one of them will have a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

I made this short video to showcase some of the things I got for them. It runs about 1:30 and I hope you like it.

Disclosure: I was given a gift card by Collective Bias, thanking me for being a Smart & Final Smartie. I chose to use it to buy another family a Thanksgiving meal. I was not required to do this. All opinions, images, videos, commentary and content are mine.

How nice of you to share with another family that might not otherwise have a Thanksgiving. I’m sure they appreciated it and put the food to good use!

Another reason why I think you’re so awesome. I bet the family was SO appreciative.
