As I mentioned in a previous post, today I wanted to check out the meat sales first hand. Butchers gave me tips to share...One even let me in on a little secret, next week should be great for buying meat at Winn Dixie. I shared with them my goals of the weekly meat posts...to find the BEST possible prices. Sure $2.99/lb is good for a pork loin, but $1.99 is better....$0.99 for a whole chicken is decent but $0.69 is a definite stockpiling price. So as we watch and chart over the next couple of weeks the stockpile prices will become obvious. It's going to help me and hopefully you too!
So here are the pics/tips from today's trip to the butcher.
1. Always compare the family pack($2.44/lb) vs. the standard pack($2.58/lb). Family packs are usually cheaper by lb...even better when they come with a $1.50 clearance sticker! Winn Dixie has ground beef $1.99/lb.
2. Always look for coupons on meat(stickers)! Usually they are placed on meat in the a.m. These stickers are found at Winn Dixie, Brunos and Food World and were plentiful.
3. Ask the butcher!
The WD butcher was determined to sell The BB these B1G1 FREE country style boneless pork ribs. These are cut from the top portion of the pork loin.

Butchers will usually cut the loins for free...always ask(nicely). I would wait to buy a loin until they are $1.99/lb! Then stock up!
