I buy my meat wholesale at BJ's or Costco.

I buy it in bulk and cut and package it myself.. and when things are on sale I buy a lot of it.   example.. whole chickens go on sale for 88 cents a lb.. Ill buy 10 -12 of them.. That lasts my long enough for them to be back on sale.  lol  Or Ill buy whole pork loins when they are on sale for 1.99 lb.. usually runs around 20 or so for the whole thing.  I then cut it up into boneless pork chops.. makes the cost be about 3.50  dollars for meat for a meal for 6 people but if I bought prepackaged/cut meat.. that would be a 10-12 dollar pack

I buy my meat at a local butcher and we go in with a few relatives (so, were buying a whole cow)
I paid $1.99 a pound last time for my beef and it taste Sooo much better then store brought.

Well in my local store, the meat part, has this deal where they have chicken, beef pork of many kinds on sale, you pick five for 20 dollars. That is a hugeeeee saver

What do you make?  I'd like to plan maybe one meatless meal a week.

Buy in bulk and freeze, or, better yet, cut back on meat and substitute beans/veggies....
