What's on sale? Grocery deals this week

Here are your Southern California grocery deals from Wednesday, Aug. 4 to Tuesday, Aug. 10 (a few stores go Thursday-Wednesday so check their websites).

To see the entire circular for your store, with all your favorite items on sale, click on the blue supermarket names to go directly to their weekly ads. I strongly recommend doing this, because I can only list a tiny fraction of all the items on sale!

It's summer, so all those yummy fruits with a lot of natural sugars and antioxidants in them are on sale, including watermelon, peaches, nectarines and plums.   Blueberries are also as cheap as you're going to find them all year. Eat them up, because they're really good for you!

And notice the deals on broccoli, you know that's one of the healthiest foods you can eat as well.

Deals I like this week:

  • Fresh blueberries large 18 oz. pkg $1.69 lb. at Sprouts
  • California grown cantaloupe 88 cents each at Sprouts
  • USDA Select boneless top sirloin steak $2.99 lb. at Smart & Final
  • Deli cooked 12-piece fried chicken with potato salad $7.99 at Stater Brothers
  • Fresh yellow peaches 3 lbs. for 99 cents at Food4Less

  • Today only, Wed. Aug 4, filet mignon is $3.99 lb. at Wholesome Choice in Anaheim

And, note, if you need a coupon to do the deal, supermarkets usually have copies of their fliers somewhere around the front of the store or you can ask for one.

And, if you know of a good deal, let us all know in the comments at the bottom! If there's a market you particularly like, tell me why!

And here's a link to my list of 5 ways to save at the grocery store!

If they give you a story about how you need to come back later, complain to the manager and tell me, too! I've been given that story more than once. I have also gone myself into the cold room and found racks of specials that were not put out for customers. However, their deals are so great, like this 39-cent chicken legs, that I put up with the aggravation.
