Friday morning I had to go to the local grocery to make sure that I had breakfast for the family when they all woke up. I had already dropped the oldest at school because he has breakfast with his friends in his classroom which I think is neat. Anyway, I went into the store and was checking out the meat for dinner for the night as well and noticed that they had marked their meat down that had the freeze by date for the next day. Well it was all marked down to 50% off. So I got hamburger meat for chili and spaghetti for about $2.40 total. I also got a really nice cut of roast that was normally over $15.00 for $8.08. I was able to make the roast with the carrots, onions and potatoes for 2 dinners (added rice the second nite). So $4.00 a night for a really nice meal:) I thought that was slick.
So check out the sales on the meats in your store. Don't be shy about asking when they put it out either.
