I've started checking the meat case for meat near the expiration, I picked up 2 apple stuffing stuffed pork chops for $3.25. I will be stopping by there more often. I forgot to mention how good those were.

Picked up 2 seasoned chicken breasts, a well-endowed chicken I might add, reg $3.95, got $2 off so we ate for $1.95 and opened a can of the .49 green beans. Still checking the meat case everytime I go in, it is amazing what they have.

I like to check our the 'orange-sticker' meat markdowns too. Also, I buy family-pak packages of meat (larger quantities) and re-bag in smaller quantities for the freezer. If there are good ground beef prices, I'll make 1-lb. freezer bags, flattened for easier storage in the freezer; sometimes I'll make individually wrapped hamburgers and bag those for the freezer. Since I'm cooking for the two of us, it makes sense for easier use.

Also, turkey and ham often go on sale after the holidays. I bought a Cook's brand spiral slice (bone-in) ham for 88 cents a pound. I cut off and pack bags of slices for sandwiches and such, and the odder bits I use diced up in omelettes, beans/bean soup, etc. Butterball turkeys were 97 cents a pound (roast it for a pig-out meal, then separate parts out for other uses). Off-brand turkeys were even cheaper.

Whenever I go into the grocery store near me I always check the meat markdowns even I don't need meat. The deals are too good to miss. After one bad experience though I don't buy chicken marked down. I recently bought ham at .77 a lb and I couldn't pass it up! We've had it the last 2 days, will have it againn today, have bean soup tomorrow and freeze the rest of the ham for scalloped potatoes. Yum.

This is what I do as well. It's also cheaper to do this, than to buy pre-packaged hamburger patties! Why should I pay more, (often 40 cents/pound more), to have someone else shape it for me? lol.

Yes! And....they're good for almost 2 yrs in a freezer! Stock up! lol

At CVS the other day and wanted to pick up a couple of candy bars but dang, I wasn't going to pay full price so I was walking around and they have I (heart) teacher candy from Valentines Day, 4 oz Dove Chocolate hearts for .54 each, there were 4 but I only took 2. When I got home I took them out of the box, they were wrapped in red foil, and gave one to hubby and told him I loved him. LOL
