    Any tips on shopping in the meat markdown bin? It makes me very nervous, but there must be some general rules or helpful tips out there for seasoned bin shoppers to keep prices low without buying bad meat.

    I have always bought my meat from the mark down bin and never ever gotten bad meat. Obviously if the package looks damaged or the meat looks bad(you know that really nast gray color it gets) skip it. I buy everything from pork to chicken and have never had a problem.

    Thanks! So does the date not count if it’s frozen when you get home? If I got some whole roasters within 1 day of expiration, is it ok if I freeze them immediately and use them later?

    Yes, I buy marked down meat all the time, and keep one out to cook that day or next, and freeze the rest. With the increased food costs, I now buy the mark downs, THEN make my menu.
