Meat is probably the best item you can buy in bulk to save money. I buy meat and poultry in large quantities at Sam’s Club or when on sale at the grocery store (10 lb. hamburger, chicken legs, etc). Then I repackage it into smaller quantities that are easily removed from the freezer and used on demand.
If you need to weigh the meat you can use a postal scale. I usually store meat portions in Vacuum Sealed Bags, but my machine broke recently so in this photo I am using freezer bags. I divide the hamburger, then shape into a log so I can roll the air out and conserve space in the freezer. Don’t forget to date your packages.
