I didn’t intend for an entire week to pass before I continued my series on how to save on meat and produce. I’ll work on getting more posted this week.
Read How to Save on Meat Part 1 if you missed it last week.
-Buy store brand: Although I tend to be a Perdue snob, purchasing store brand meat is usually cheaper (depending on current sales).
-Buy cheaper cuts: Save money by purchasing cheaper cuts of meat and marinading, using a tenderizer or cooking in a crock pot.
-Use rebates: I love taking a stroll through the beer section in search of mail-in rebates. The beer section isn’t the only place to find meat rebates, but it’s where I find most of mine. Typically, an alcohol purchase is not required.
-Use coupons from promos: Did you get a Catalina back from a recent store promotion? It is fairly common to find a store promo to get $10 back via coupon at checkout when you purchase $25 or $30 worth of participating products. Use the coupon to save on meat (or produce).
Next up, cooking with meat.
What are your tips for saving on meat and produce? Comments left that are not on my notes, will be added in a separate post at the end of the series.
