Take advantage of in-store specials and buy meat in large quantities. When you get home, package it according to the serving size for your family and freeze it. It is much cheaper to buy 5-10 pounds of ground meat and a pound of meat can easily be packaged in a pint-size zip-lock bag. Mark the contents and date on the package, and place in freezer. Chicken is another great meat to buy in bulk and package in smaller sizes.
