  • Ralphs: 7/22 – 7/28

    Note: This summary of deals is based on the ad I get in Los Angeles, where Ralphs stores double coupons up to $1. I don’t list all of the deals, only what I consider to be really good ones. If I missed any, please let us all know in the comments.

    The Mix & Match deal continues through this week, and you can find a list of participating products at A Full Cup. I don’t see any spectacular deals, unless you have lots of one coupon, which I usually don’t (e.g., 10 $1 off Vitamin Water coupons would make them free + CRV).

    Strawberries 77 cents/lb

    Mangos – 3/$1

    Top Round Roast $1.99/lb – I don’t know much about this cut of meat, but I’ve yet to find one that can’t be made delicious in the slow cooker.

    Whole Turkey Breast $1.49/lb – Question: how would you cook this?

    Crest Toothpaste & Oral-B Toothbrush $1 – There were 50 cents off and 75 cents off toothpaste coupons in the June & July P&G inserts, and a $1 off toothbrush coupon in the July P&G insert, making all of these items free. Remember that only one like coupon will double (so you can use one each of the toothpaste coupons).

    Selected melons 2 lbs/$1

    Blueberries $3.99/18 oz.

    Broccoli crowns or cauliflower 99 cents/lb

    Organic russet potatoes 5 lb bag B1G1 free – That’s probably a pretty good deal on organic potatoes (I don’t know the actual price because I haven’t been to the store yet). Potatoes are on the list of produce that retain a lot of pesticides, so I try to always buy organic.

    Green onions or red radishes – 2 bunches/$1

    Roma tomatoes – 88 cents/lb

      For the Turkey Breast, I would use this brine: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/sunny-anderson/roasted-turkey-breast-with-peach-rosemary-glaze-recipe/index.html. It calls for boneless turkey, but I've done it with bone in with no problem- makes the turkey really moist and flavorful. I never make the glaze either. I wish that we could get turkey at $1.49 per lb here! It's nice to freeze the leftovers for pot pies, enchiladas, etc…

    2. Chief Family Officer says:

      @Jamie – Ah, that's brilliant! Thank you!

    3. Jamie (Suddenly Stay @ Home) says:

      Here's another recipe for you- for the top round roast or whatever that was at $1.99 per lb- http://suddenlystayathome.blogspot.com/2009/07/garlic-beef-stroganoff-crock-pot-recipe.html.

      Sounds great – thanks, Jamie!
