Australia's two dominant supermarkets, Woolworths and Coles, every week have items selling for half-price.

The retailers use the temptations to lure shoppers through the door, hoping they will also buy other groceries with higher margins to make up for the money the companies lose on the bargains.

Fortunately for you, Yahoo Finance has scoured the aisles to pick out the best “50 per cent off” discounts for both Coles and Woolworths – and we list them here in one place so that you can compare.

All these deals are on sale Wednesday August 7 and will last until Tuesday August 13:
