Your best grocery deals this week

THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

Are you planning to eat this week?

If so, you might like to check out my favorite grocery deals this week in Southern California.

Most of these deals are for the week of Nov. 9 to Nov. 16, 2011.

Note that the Thanksgiving deals are starting to appear, if you find a great price on potatoes, carrots, onions or garlic, go ahead and grab it, because those will stay good in your pantry until Turkey Day.

I only wish I had room in my freezer for an extra turkey, because I do like to buy one at super cheap prices and then freeze it to roast later.

And click here to read my post, "How to have a cheap but tasty Thanksgiving"

To see the entire circular for each store, with all your favorite items on sale, go to the second page of this blog and 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!

  • Sorry, you'll have to click on the link to go to the store website, it's difficult to find the specials and I am not sure they're the same for every store in Orange County!

Wholesome Choice

You can sign up to get the sale fliers delivered to you by email every week, I can't post them because it's very hard to read the poor quality scans they put up online and I'm not sure if the specials are different by store or not. Look online for the email signup.
