Here are the highlights for Chicago grocery sales April 25-May 2. Nothing really notable going on this week except that we are seeing more and more fresh produce on sale, which is always nice.

SALES THAT START THURSDAY
- Jewel-Osco: Here’s something we haven’t seen in a long time: A “spend $20, get a $5 coupon” Catalina deal, on Nestle products. One possibility: Buy 2 tubs of Tidy Cats litter (27 pounds) for $10.99 apiece, use two $1 coupons from the 1/29 RedPlum, and you’ll pay $20, get $15 back, for a final price of $15 for 54 pounds of litter.* See Jewel locations and ad. If you haven’t already, sign up for Jewel emails to print a coupon for $5 off a $25 purchase.
- Dominick’s: $1.97/gallon milk is back on Just for U, limit 2, but remember you have to load it to your card again each week. Also on J4U, Lucerne Greek yogurt cups (6 oz.) are 59 cents apiece, limit 8, and Basic Lunchables are 88 cents, limit 3. If you didn’t get your free Ken’s Steakhouse salad dressing at Jewel last week, you can get it at Dominick’s Friday-Monday, when it’s on sale for 99 cents. Use the $1 off coupon from the 3/11 SmartSource insert, which expires 4/30. See Dominick’s locations and online sale ads. Get personalized Dominick’s deals on Just for U.

* Do you have a target price for cat litter? I must admit even after more than a year of having cats, I have no idea how much it should cost.
