Saving Money on Meat
I get this question more than any other and really, the answer is pretty simple!
Lets be honest, purchasing meat does take up a big chunk of a family’s grocery budget. With lean hamburger averaging $4 a pound and a decent cut of steak running between $6 to $15 a pound, it’s understandable why a family’s grocery budget feels so tight. Did you know that you can actually grab great deals on Meat at your own local store? You just have ride the sale waves & strike when the iron is hot! Saving money on Meat is not as hard as some might think!
Here are ways my family saves on meat/poultry:
1.) Watching for sales is one way to buy meat cheaply.
For larger families, “family packs” are usually discounted an additional 20¢ a pound beyond the sales price. If you can take advantage of “family packs” it is usually the best way to go, but do the math to make sure. When you get home, divide & freeze.
This is a good place to use your “Stock up” Price list. Watch the sales for several weeks & document the prices you find. You will see a trend on meat sales. Now you should have a target price point for meat/poultry. [click to continue…]
