Default Any Southern Californians out there?

Hey, is anyone on here from Southern CA? I am moving out there in 3 weeks. Got any tips for living? Any good restuarants? Any tips for saving money in the land of the sunshine tax? I am moving to the south suburbs of Los Angeles.
Thanks,
Jen

Im in So. Cal. I live in San Bernardino Cty and work in Orange Cty. I dont have much advice on money saving in So Cal (I am a stamper u know) But, I love to eat out and might be able to recommend some places to eat. What area are we talking about? I have friends in the Sherman Oaks/ Burbank area.

Default La Mirada

I live in La Mirada (between Whittier and Fullerton right on the LA/Orange County line). I help graduate students relocate to La Mirada, so I might be able to give you some advice depending upon the area you are plan to move to in LA. Unfortunately for you, I am relocating soon to Charlotte, NC. In the mean time, ask away! Email or PM me!

My DH got a new job and they will be moving us at the end of December. DH was born and raised in northern CA and we have been living in LA for about three years now. Never thought we'd leave LA or CA because DH was heading into sound for film but then suddenly got this great offer doing sound for a radio program. I have heard a number of people moving from CA to NC. Strange!

I live in Southern CA... in Corona. That's in Riverside co... not too far from Los Angeles.

Things are pretty expensive in CA. Are you buying a house or renting?

Let's see... Stater Brothers has the best prices for groceries that I've found around my area. Some of the other grocery stores have some good coupons, but they can't beat Staters overall.

Be careful how much you run the air-conditioning. Electricity is crazy here! I can't believe how high our electric bill was last month!

But really... Southern CA is great!!! You won't be far from the mountians, and not far the beach! If you want the desert, we've got that too.

You can pm or email me if you need more specific info.
Happy moving!

Thanks, Jami. I was just thinking the same thing when I started reading the thread. Jen, it will be great for you to come to the event. We can help you get started in Southern California! (I hope to see all of your SoCal'ers out there! )

Wow, that is coming up quick! I will try. I am not sure I will be ready for a big event right after I move...there are swaps there? I know I won't have anything to swap. I can barely fit all of my stamping stuff to move much less swap cards!
You guys all sound so nice and I hope that I will get to meet you sometime.

I believe that there will be swaps, but you don't HAVE TO do it! Only if you want to. It should be so much fun! I'm excited to meet everyone! It will be a nice break from your move!

I am also in So CA, Riverside County.

It would be great if you can join us for our Stamp Till You Drop! But if it goes well and we all keep our fingers crossed, maybe this won't be the last time!

The only advice I have is to make sure you have air conditioning!

What made you decide to move?

Does that mean you're coming?! I haven't gotten a list from Joleen of who has signed up yet, so I don't know who will be there. I know Jami is coming! I'm sure we can put something together again!!!!

Emily--
I decided to move because I visited California for the first time 8 years ago and I fell in love with it. I know that a lot of people dream to live in California, but it's different than that. I went to college in IL, but did my student teaching in Bellflower (Valley Christian) because I wanted to experience CA living...that sealed it.
I am a little scared because I am moving 2000 miles away from all of my family.

Will you be teaching at Valley Christian? Our receptionist here in my office at Biola has kids who went through Valley Christian and a son in law who teaches there.

I don't know anything about this Ontario event... Guess I need some infomation!

You guys are just the GREATEST!! I love how threads on here just take off. It is so different from the SU! site where it has to go through the moderator and if you post at night it doesn't go on until the next day.
I am not so scared to keep stampin' and demonstrating in CA anymore because you are all so kind and loving.

Okay you guys here are two questions for you

What is your favorite place to eat in S. Cali?

Do you know a place to find apartment supplies/furniture at a decent price?

Thanks!
