I use coupons and shop the sales every week and only buy meats when on sale.I always have a nice variety on hand.I just bought 24 ribeye steaks for $4.99 a pound total cost was around $90.For the four of us to eat a steak dinner out it would be around $100 and we'll have 6 steak dinners for less than the cost of one out .
