Meal Planning & Sales 7/10-7/16


July 10, 2013 by Lauren

This is one of those weeks where I’m glad I have a large chest freezer.  There are a few things on sale but not a ton.  It shows those cyclical natures of sales.  After big holidays/sales (4th of July) they tend to not have much on sale.

*note: these deals are for Denver and Northern Colorado in general.  Besides meat and dairy, most everything else is usually a national sale so check your own circular.


  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs – $1.99/lb
  • Safeway brand breads – $1.49
  • Whole boneless pork loin – $2.99/lb
  • Star Olive Oil – BOGO

King Soopers:

  • Large Hass Avocados – 10/$10
  • Milk – $1.99/gallon
  • Dozen Eggs – 10/$10 (whoa!)
  • Yellow/Zucchini Squash – $.99/lb
  • Luna Bars – 10/$10


  • Blueberries – $1.49/pint
  • Green Bell Peppers, Radishes, Scallions, or Cucumbers – $.48 each
  • Hass Avocados – $.88 each
  • Wild Sockeye Salmon – $9.99/lb (great for wild caught)
  • Lara Bar 4/$5
  • Red Bell Peppers 3/$1
  • Yellow/Zucchini Question – $.98/lb

My Meal Plan:

  1. Shredded Pork — I’ve been craving this like crazy.  It’s a simple, all day crockpot meal and re-freezes perfectly.  I did it with tacos last time, but some pulled pork sandwiches sound amazing.
  2. London Broil — Like I said, I have 7 of these.  They’re great when marinaded and then I keep the leftover cut steak for salads.

Posts coming your way, I promise!  I’m also on a mission.  I realized my chest freezer’s reserves are getting ridiculous so I’m going to stop buying meat (unless it’s a ridiculous deal, you know I can’t help myself).  I think 7 london broils are enough for anyone.
