Fran I should have made a comment about your post that Boneless Beef Roast is less expensive than ground beef.
I almost always find boneless beef either for pot roast or "stew beef" marked down at Sam's and I will pick either up and bring it home and grind it or chop it more to use for burgers, chili, meatloaf or surprisingly enough soup, stew or pot roast. 
Doing that I often get a leaner ground beef than I would had I purchased ground beef.  Also I know nothing else has been added.

On Friday wandering through Sam's I found boneless, skinless chicken thighs for $0.88 a pound. I could not resist.  I made soup per my Grandson's request.  I tossed some in the freezer and plan to use some for a chicken chili and some for my husbands favorite "Mexican" dinner. 

On the same trip I found a whole Pork shoulder for $1.80 a pound so on Saturday I tossed it in the oven at around 8am and had the most wonderful tender pork at 5pm along with roasted butternut squash.  And I had made the Nantucket Cranberry Pie to finish off the dinner.

When milk is on sale you can buy more and freeze it.it's good for 3 months frozen just leave 1" headspace in the milk jug to allow for expansion.Thaw in the fridge.Milk is also good about week after the sell by date.

Kroger had their 16oz sour cream & cottage cheese on sale 10 for $10.00 with Oct. dates & I found 4 jars of Knorr powder chicken bouillon ( equal to 250 bouillon cubes) 1/2 off with use by dates of Sept. 2013.  I bought 2 (that is equal to 500 cubes) for the nice sum of $ 5.78. The other store had a special sale buy 8, get $8.00 off & I had coupons for 2 of the items on the list so I got 2 Kraft cheddar singles Mar. 2013 dates(reg. $ 4.39 on sale for $ 2.49 minus the $1.00 & coupon =)$ .99 each, 2 Kraft 16 oz blue cheese salad dressing(ugh!! for hubby) Feb. 2013 date (on sale for $ 1.99 minus the $ 1.00 & coupon = ) $  .49 each & 4 Crystal Light 12 qt each ($2.00 minus the $ 1.00) for $ 1.00 each AND by buying the Crystal Light I got  $ 3.00 coupon off my next shopping trip (like getting 48 quarts for $ 1.00). I also bought hubby his salisbury steak (reg. $ 3.28 on sale for $ 2.00 each so I bought 3) he gets 2 dinners & a lunch out of each. I also bought him his beef pepper oriental dinner(reg. $ 3.25 on sale for $ 2.50), I was going to buy him 3, but there was a sign on the shelf "buy 2 get a 16oz  bag of long grain rice free" so I bought him 4 & got 2# of rice free ($ 1.14 each), that is another 8 dinners for him (I do not like the stuff), red seedless grapes were $ 1.00# & really nice so I bought a little over a # (the bird will have to share with me), bought a nice head of iceberg for $ .77 & bought hubby 24 glazed donut holes (on sale), a pretty good shopping trip.

Our big chain store here is having a four day sale starting Thursday and ending Sunday.They will have ground chuck for $1.99 a pound I plan on buying at least 20# and freezing it.This is the only way to keep ahead of rising prices trying to spend the same each week on groceries just isn't going to work,the prices fluctuate so much week to week.Ground beef has been as high as $3.59 a pound.I have a lot of pork but running low on chicken so that's thenext thing I have to work on.Side dishes are easy to come up with a bag of potatoes,rice and noodles are the start of a lot of side dishes and if you make your own this can also save a ton of money.I always stock up on all types of boxed potatoes to have on hand in a pinch.I pay around .50 cents a box when on sale and using a double coupon.I also have soup base on hand at all times.this is great to use to boost your gravies and soups and are great for adding flavor to rice dishes.I also stock up on canned and frozen veggies to eat during the winter months.Right now we are still enjoying fresh fruits and vegetables.With a little planning and time spent you can still save big and feed your family well.

.25 a pound for chicken!!!! That is amazing.  I hate to say it but we would be eating chicken for months. 
I sort of feel bad for the producers at .25 they have to be losing money on each one.
