We wait for it to go on sale or reduced for quick sale and usually can get it for $2-$3 a pound. Normal price is around $3.50 a pound at albertsons for 85/15. It goes up from there.  I live in Oregoin too andusually get our hamburger at Albertsons since they have the best prices for meat.  Safeway does have some good prices for chicken though

 I have an Acme near me that runs, nearly every week, 4 for $19.99 values on different meats and chicken.  That makes every package $5.  I try and get the largest chicken breast and chopped meat packages I can find to stretch the dollar.  Often they are in the 2 and a half pound range.  Sometimes whole chickens are on this deal, Italian sausage, nd turkey tenderloin.

I only buy when it's on sale, the last best price I saw was like 2.38, but regular price is definitely over $4!
