Tips For Saving Money On Meat
Meat can add up a lot when you are shopping for groceries. Here are a few helpful tips I use when it comes time to grocery shop.
Look for meat that is one sale. Each week the meat sales will rotate. Create a meal plan that goes around the meats that are on sale.
Buy bulk packages of meat. If you have a huge pack of chicken drumsticks on sale, buy them up and portion them into single servings when you get home. Then you can get 5 packs of chicken for a lower price than say buying individual packages more.
Buy one get one free. My Kroger store has buy one get one free sales on meat often. Make sure to take advantage, especially items like roast that are pricey. Then freeze them, until you are ready to use.
