  • Morning Coffee: Ralphs matchups delayed until tomorrow

    I usually get the Ralphs ad on Tuesday, so I spend Tuesday night/Wednesday morning putting together the matchups. If Monday is a holiday, the ad doesn’t arrive until Wednesday. But Monday wasn’t a holiday, and yet I didn’t get my ad in yesterday’s mail. :( So I’ll have to use the online ad and find some time to do the matchups today so I can get them up for you tomorrow. I just hope the rain made our mail carrier decide not to deliver the circulars yesterday, and that it’s not that the markets have decided to stop mailing the circulars out!

    Speaking of Ralphs, when I was there for the Mega Deal, there were blinkies for $1/2 Keebler Fudge Shoppe cookies.
