The market where I shop has bottom round beef roast for $2.29/lb. It's about their usual price. Though, I don't expect that to last.
We had a sale last month at our family grocery on New Yorks.
$4 bucks a pound normally runs twice that much.
Many seasoned shoppers know to stock up on things when they go on a good sale.
Other than water I drink allot of Diet 7up for my high acid stomach and I know to use the $10 coupon that come out once a month and stock up at the low price of buy two get one free @ $3 a twelve pack.
The only thing I buy at the grocery store that is spendy is the beef bones. For my canine companions. $2.67 a lb.
We take go out for the day and I like to give them something special for staying home alone. Yeah they are spoiled. But all the love they provide is priceless.
