With grilling season ramping up, let’s chat about how to save on protein. Meat can be expensive, but there are ways to get your protein and cash in on some great savings. Two tips to make sure you’re getting the best deal on your family’s meals.
The first thing to keep in mind is the time of day you’re purchasing your meat. Supermarkets generally mark down prices in the mornings, so try shopping in the middle of the day to score the best deals and selection. Look for a super buys section or Manager’s Special section to score good deals.
Another tip: Just ask! If you see that a package of meat or poultry is approaching its sell-by date, find a manager and ask him or her if the price can be lowered. Establishments will likely mark the package down, which keeps the product moving and its customers happy.
