This Week's Best Grocery Prices (as of 11/3/11)

Alrighty, here we go!  Please click on the following link for some important tips on price-matching at WalMart

asparagus   1.49/lb   Sunflower Mkt
green cabbage   20 cents/lb   El Super
sweet corn   20 cents each   El Super
radishes   20 cents/bunch   BuyLow

chicken, whole Foster Farms   69 cents/lb   Vons LIMIT 3
chicken breasts, bone-in split  97 cents/lb   El Super
ribeye bone-in 4.99/lb NOTE: WalMart doesn't carry bone-in steaks, so head to Smiths for this price

Jimmy Dean sausage roll 16 oz.   $2.50  Food4Less*
Oscar Meyer turkey bacon 11.5-12oz   $1.99 Albertsons
Bar S bologna 12 oz. (chicken, turkey, thick or original)  $0.99   Marianas

Many of these items are at Smiths or Food4Less and are part of a promotion where you must buy 10 of the promotional items (mix and match) to get this price.  I'm going to make sure I buy multiples of 10, just in case they want to check the ad, but that should be easy considering the large group of items I can pick from.  I just hope I find the right amount of coupons to coincide.

Blue Diamond Almond Breeze 1/2 gallon   $1.99   Smiths*
DelMonte canned veggies 14.5-15.25 oz.  $0.48   Food4Less
Albertsons brand canned beans 15oz.   $0.50   Albertsons
Campbells creamy soups 10.75-14.5 oz.  $0.48  Food4Less*
Annie's Natural Mac 'n' Cheese 5.25-6 oz.  $0.69   Smiths
Heinz gravy 12 oz.   $0.75   Smiths
Pringles can   $0.98  Food4Less*
California Pizza Kitchen pizza 12.6-17 oz   $4.49 Vons*
Crest cavity toothpaste 4.6 oz    $1.00    Smiths*
Oral B cavity defense toothbrush    $1.00   Smiths*

*  These items have coupons.  Some are printable from your computer & others are in printed ads.  I found them on the coupon trackers on  If I had more time today, I'd also check 's coupon database.

Good luck!  Don't worry if it doesn't go perfectly.  We're all human.  It will take time to develop any new skill or method.  Be patient with yourself.  You will slowly watch your grocery envelope have more extra cash in it each month...and your cabinets & freezers slowy have more extra food in them each month.  It's nice!  It's worth it!
