    Some of our members have been taking advantage
    of meat sales and deals that are routinely available. Here is one example of that: What I did with 25#'s of Chicken& Lots of Beef . It's very helpful to see how other people make their grocery budgets work as well!

    We'd love to see/hear your grocery deals, menu's and budgets. Feel free to submit them in the comments below.
