Good Meat Prices

Posted on February 28th, 2012 by Discount Debbie

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?
