At Safeway, the magic number is $.88! Pay $.88 per pound for Large Navel or Cara Cara oranges. It's also $.88 each for mini seedless watermelon or cantaloupe. There is a limit of four at that club price. Otherwise, it's normally $2.99 each.

Big savings at Bashas' too on the same, but bigger item! It's $.27 per pound for seedless watermelon. Get three honey mangoes for $.99. During the three-day sale on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, get four red, gold, orange or green bell peppers for $1. Pay just $.57 for 32-ounce bottles of Gatorade. It's limited to the first 12. Get Sanderson Farms Chicken drumsticks, thighs or leg quarters for $.87 per pound. With your Thank You Card, score 30% off Easter novelties and accessories.

At Albertsons, spend $.77 per pound for red or green seedless grapes, and there's a coupon for $5 off a grocery purchase of $50 or more. You might want to do most of your shopping on $5 Friday! Here's an idea of the deals you can get for $5:

  • five Haas avocados
