Meat is a big expense at our house. We do a lot to cut down on the cost like buying in bulk and clearance. But, have you wondered how to spot a good price? The sale papers definitely confusing because if you don’t know a good price, you don’t know if what they are advertising is a good deal or not.
Here are some examples of good prices. When I see these prices, I buy! If I see these in the papers, I go to the store. You can use these as a general guide for stocking up, but always be on the lookout for better! Prices will also vary from location to location.
- Pork Chops (bone-in) $.99/lb
- Pork Roast $1.49/lb
- Beef Roast $1.99/lb
- 93% Lean Ground Beef $2.25/lb
- Ground Beef $1.49/lb
- Whole Chicken $.99/lb
- Boneless Chicken Breast $1.89/lb (fresh)
- Chicken Thighs/Drumsticks $.79/lb
A while ago we posted a guide to buying meat and suggested buying your cow locally. When I called my local rancher for pricing, it was about $2.50 a pound. That’s not a GREAT price for ground beef, but that’s the price for awesome steaks like ribeyes that can cost about $7-$10 a pound!
What are your stock up prices?
