This is my first post on Tightwad Tuesday! I don't have a lot to contribute, but I did learn a really good tip from a friend last night. I never pay more than $2 per pound for meat, so unless that $4-$5 per pound hamburger is really on a good sale, I don't use much of it.
This week our Safeway store had round steak and roasts for $1.37 per pound. Ever hear of ground round? Take that roast to your butcher and ask him to grind it. Most grocery stores will do this for free. Translation: good, lean ground beef for only $1.37 per pound! You can do this with London broil also (flank steak), for extra lean ground beef. Why did I never think of this before?!? Too bad, the sale is over, but next time I will be prepared!!
