Buying is bulk is one of the best ways to save on meat.
When I say, buy in bulk, I don’t mean head to the local warehouse store and buy some meat… I mean buy in bulk! Think 10 pounds or more. For example, I can get lean ground beef at Sam’s for $2.83 per pound, when I buy a 10 pound tube. If I bought just one pound of lean meat at the local grocery store, I would pay over $3.50 per pound. That alone saves me $.67 per pound just buy buying the 10 pound tube of ground beef.
However, if you have room, think of buying even more!
At Sam’s if you buy a case of chicken or meat (about 40 lbs), you can get about a $.50 per pound discount. That means, instead of pay $2.83 per pound for the lean ground beef you could pay as low as $2.33 per pound.
This past week Zaycon foods had a closeout sale and I was able to get 40 lbs of lean ground beef for only $1.99 per pound. Because I purchased 40 lbs at one time, I saved over $.90 per pound!
If you can, save money each week to buy meat. Then when you have enough, you can make a big purchase and buy your meat in bulk. In the long run, it will save you a ton of money.
