September is California Wine Month.
Why you ask? We are in the thick of preparing for harvest and the grapes are hanging lush on all the vines so I guess it is one of the most scenic times for visitors (and locals) to enjoy the vineyards.
September brings several special events including the Once a Year SIP Passport opportunity. It’s a discount voucher for September only that’s on sale now.
There is also the 4th Annual Crush Event on September 14th. This year it is being hosted at Callaway Winery. This is a gala event bringing 35 Temecula Valley Wineries together with food, wine and live entertainment.
September is looking to be an awesome celebration of local wines. And while most of us enjoy our Temecula wines all year round…many new faces will be flowing into our community for the first time. So put a smile on and welcome our guests!

Loving Life in the Temecula Valley!
In the last year I have become a coupon fanatic! I haven’t done the exact savings in spreadsheet form or anything but I am pretty confident that I have cut our grocery, sundries monthly bill nearly in half. I am simply matching coupons with sales. No sale-no purchase. Although there have been a few exceptions…and we still have our Costco membership because sometimes they just can’t be beat.
Well lo and behold I stumbled across coupons for the Temecula Valley Wine Country today. Where have I been? There are 2 for 1 wine tasting, lunch discounts and more…click here to go there compliments of the Temecula Valley Wine Growers Association and enjoy!

So I have recently been turned on to TLC’s “Extreme Couponing” show and I am hooked! The season finale is this Wednesday (6/15/11) at 9:30pm. I won’t be up but my DVR is already on it. If you haven’t seen an episode, check your On Demand feature for TLC. The show is only 30 minutes long.
I am just beginning to explore the coupon world. Apparently it is more complicated than you might think. After watching the show a couple of times, I can’t really imagine being able to accomplish the extreme savings that the show depicts. I believe it can be done but am sure that I won’t be able to devote the time that would clearly be necessary. I have also determined that it just might be a very organized and premeditated type of hoarding, LOL! Regardless it has given me pause on how silly it is that I don’t even look at the grocery store sales circulars …not even the store I shop at regularly!
A few tips on what I’ve learned so far (some from a very helpful friend who may just be a bit more obsessed than I):
My Temecula Ralphs store on Highway 79 South will double coupons up to $1.00 ($ .50 becomes $1./ But $1. Is still just $1.) If you register your rewards card online-you can load some of the coupons directly onto the card without having to print them out. Manufacturer coupons are available to print out and use anywhere. You can also create your shopping list directly from clicking on their sale paper. Awesome time saver! ***Effective 4/1/12 Ralph’s is no longer doubling manufacturer coupons*** Big Bummer!
My Temecula Albertsons
on Rancho California Road offers a $ 5.00 off $25.00 purchase just for signing up HERE for email updates on sales and coupons. You earn additional coupons for up to 5 friends you can get to sign up. Be careful not to sign up until you want the coupon though. They only gave me 1 week to use it so plan accordingly. You can create an online account as well and create a shopping list directly from the sales paper. There is also a large coupon book inside of the Albertsons store that has coupons I did not find online so you may want to grab that up.
My Temecula Newspaper
The Press Enterprise will allow you to subscribe to Sundays only so that you can get the weekly coupons and sales papers delivered to your front door.
I have only accomplished the “completely free” item once and I could only get 2 free because I only had 2 coupons…but it was exciting, even if it was just toothpaste!
Why do you or don’t you use coupons? Do you have any tips on saving money in Temecula that you would like to share?
Please make sure to check with your store on their coupon policy prior to relying on any specific savings.
