Money-saving tip! Stocking up on meat and more…

When it comes to saving money, no amount is too small. When you find a money saving tip that works for you, run with it! All those little savings add up.

Today’s tip is about stocking up on meat!

When family-sized packs of ground beef go on sale, grab an extra pack or two. Divide them into one pound portions, wrap in foil and place in a freezer bag (squeeze all the air out) and freeze for three months.

You will generally pay less per pound when you buy in bulk (this is also true for chicken and porkchops). And you’ll waste less if you divide them into manageable portions. I know for our little family, 3/4 of a pound is sufficient for hambuger helper, spaghetti, chili, etc. I just make sure I divide it up and freeze it as soon as I get home from the store so I don’t wait too long. You want to freeze it at the peak of it’s freshness or it won’t be any good.
