I’ve spent a lot of time this past week writing and taking video of my How to Vacation at Disneyland on a Budget post, so I haven’t had as much time this week to compile a comprehensive list of groceries. If you see a sale item, please feel free to comment below to share it with everyone.

After looking through the weekly ads, here are this week’s best grocery deals in Utah, October 19-25, 2016. Use The Best Weekly Grocery Deals list below to price match at your local Walmart or Target, or you can use the list to see where the best sales are each week and go to one or two stores to grab the deals. If you price match at Target, you’ll need to have the ads with you when you check out.
