Every week Coles and Woolworths put certain grocery items on sale at just half the usual price.

These regular deals are even better than this September promotion, in which Woolworths customers can get 25 per cent off their entire shop.

And for your convenience, Yahoo Finance has scanned the aisles to select the best of those 50%-off items – so you can decide for yourself which supermarket to go to this week.

These bargains hardly make much money for Woolworths and Coles, but they act as "tempters" to get shoppers into their stores, where they'll likely buy other items at full price to complete their grocery haul.

The specials below are half-price from Wednesday September 11 until Tuesday September 17 inclusive:
