How to save on meat

One easy way to save on meat is to buy it when the grocery store marks it “reduced for quick sale”. This is an easy and effortless way to save money.

You can stock your freezer with great cuts of meat that didn’t cost a fortune. Don’t worry if the reduced meat is packaged in bulk. Simply repackage it using freezer bags in portions that work for your family size when you buy in bulk.

The next time you need meat, just look in your freezer for all of that reduced meat you were able to stockpile.

With the rising prices of groceries, every little bit of savings helps. Give this a try to see how it will positively impact your budget. I think you will be really pleased on the long term impact on your grocery budget.

What is reduced for quick sale?

This type of meat typically has a sticker or label on it indicating it has been reduced for quick sell. You will find meat marked anywhere from 20%-50% off. This is because it is getting close to its “sell by” date.

In order to move that meat, they reduce the price. This is an easy way to save on beef, chicken breasts, pork or any type of meat.

In fact, this is my favorite way to buy chuck roasts, ground beef and steaks. The savings is incredible and makes a huge impact on your meat budget.

Anyone can save money on meat by utilizing these easy tips. Try buying just a few packages of meat that are reduced and see the long term savings add up.

The next time you need to buy large amounts of meat, try to check the reduced section first.

Packages of meat

How do you find them?

You will have more luck at finding “reduced for quick sale” beef at your local and smaller grocery stores. If you are not finding them very often, don’t be shy about asking.

It does not hurt to ask the meat department. Most meat departments are very friendly and will let you know when they generally mark down their meat.

Some stores do it early in the morning, but others will mark down in the evenings before they leave. Either way, once you know that information, you can aim to shop around those times.

This will greatly help you get the best deals before the reduced meat gets picked over. I try to always stop by weekly during the mark down hour. This makes it so easy to choose the markdowns I prefer most.

Everything goes into the freezer and my family can enjoy delicious meals for weeks to come with these great deals.

Are they safe and taste good?

Yes. They are reduced for quick sale, because the “sell by” date is getting close. If you cook it or freeze it immediately, then the meat is still great.

You will never know the difference in quality but the savings will add up. So make sure to grab any sized packages that you can find and start saving money.

Give this a try and watch your grocery bill benefit in the long run. It is also beneficial to have a price book to keep up with the price per pound you would like to pay. Another helpful tip is to contact a local farmer and see what meat they have available.

Save money with reduced for quick sale meat.
