If you guys are spending $60+ per week for just yourselves you really need to learn how to shop! You can save a lot of money by doing the work yourself. Nothing pre-cut/packaged/cooked and you can magically shave around 15% off your food bills. Steak only needs to cost about $3.00/lb, same w/ chicken and the like.
Sorry man, maybe we just eat more than you. I already follow your golden rule but it still comes to around $100 a week.
Agreed. Steaks are currently 4 bucks a pound at Krogers. I go through about 2-3lbs a day depending on the size of each steak and these are lean cuts. They would cost more if I didn’t wait for them to go on sale about 2-3 days before the sell by date.
I think some people underestimate how much food some of us eat. Everyone isn’t 150lbs.[/quote]
I weighed in at 252 this morning. =P I never factored in someone eating 3 lbs. of steak (6 large steaks) in a single day.
