Looking for “real food” sales? Here’s a quick round-up of specials you might find on the west coast. To find specials in other parts of the country, check out the store deals database at Money Saving Mom.

I’ve scanned through the grocery ads to highlight the unprocessed or minimally processed items that I see as good deals this week. I have certain target prices, so what the store may call a “sale” price is not necessarily what I call a deal.

The last couple weeks’ sales haven’t really held much to write home about. I’m planning to hit Albertsons for that Tillamook, though.

Check with your local store and ad to confirm the sale prices I list. Consider these special prices for stock-up opportunities available in Southern California stores:
