Here are the best sales and coupon matchups for Chicago grocery store Jewel-Osco this week. I'm not listing everything that appears in the ad from today's Chicago Tribune, just the items that are near their cyclical low price or have good coupon matchups. This week, I'm finally loving the "Buy 10, save $5" deal -- it will get you free brownie mix, or five cake mixes and five cans frosting for just $2.50, if you have the coupons! A frosted cake for 50 cents? (Well, you do have to buy the eggs. Or pick up your free eggs at Dominick's for signing up for the Just for U program.)

Coupon heads up: Today's Tribune has an extra little Jewel booklet with a $5/$50 coupon on the front. For joy! Also, check your mailbox: This week I got a booklet with coupons not ony fro $8 off $80 but also for $3 off any frozen food purchase and the same for deli. Hooray!
