What's on sale at your supermarket this week?

it would be cool if we could keep this thread rolling every week, i'd like to see what kind of deals there are around the country. when i shop the weekly grocery ad its usually for meat and veggies but mostley for meat and when i find an outstanding deal i usually buy for the freezer. i never buy prepared/frozen food so you wont be seeing any of that stuff on my lists. well heres whats on sale this week in northern california:

safeway
whole chicken .69/LB
pork shoulder roast .99/LB
pacific red snapper or dover sole fillets $3.99/LB
broccoli crowns .87/LB
large eggs .99/DZ

luckys
tri tip or sirloin roasts $2.67/LB
pacific red snapper $3.99/LB
chicken leg Quarters .59/LB
fuji apples .33/LB

im heading out in a little bit for some whole chicken, red snapper, broccoli and fuji apples. ive been on an apple diet lately and this sale is perfect, probably pick up a good 6 or 7 pounds. the chicken i would rate as a freezer buy but im not gonna do it, my freezer is too full.

At Harris Teeter, Starbucks' ice cream pints are half price. Love the Java Chip Frappuccino!

thats a really good price on the pasta, i would rate that as a "buy for the pantry" price.

I don't normally shop Safe-way because they are generally higher then our Mid-Atlantic chair Giant Foods, but for comparing sake I'll use their sale ad.
Top Sirloin or Flat Iron Steak $4.99 per lbs
beef brisket 3.99
whole chicken 1.49
legs or thighs 1.29
80/20 ground beef 2.99
tilapia 3.99
cod 5.99

I haven't seen prices like what you are posting in years, whole chicken .69 wow!! the lowest I've seen it here is around .99 You don't how lucky you are living there.

I can generally get previously frozen flounder for 2.69/lb at the local Walmart. That's cheaper than any of the fish in the freezer section.

Our supermarket doesn't have sales flyers online. We don't get them in the mail where I live. As a result, I don't see the sale items until I get to the store.

Andy, they don't have the newspaper ads where you live? Grocery stores make much more money off of you when you go in there without a plan. There are services that plan a weekly menu around the sales at specific stores. What stores are closest to you?

We only get the Sunday paper. They don't have a flyer there either.
