Each week Woolworths and Coles both have a number of items on sale for 50 per cent off the normal price.

And for your convenience, Yahoo Finance runs through the aisles every week to pick out the best half-price deals – so that you can decide whether to go to Coles or Woolworths.

These half-price bargains would actually not make much money for the major supermarkets. But they do get customers through the door, with Coles and Woolworths betting that they'll pay full price on other items to complete their shop.

The specials below are on sale Wednesday August 28 and will last until Tuesday September 3 inclusive:
