Saving money on meat!

Check out our new addition to our home! A new deep freezer! We found the best price at Sam's Club for about $160! This is made by GE...which is a great manufacturer in my book! We have been looking for about the last 4-5 months and this was the best we could find. 

I am sure if we would have waited awhile longer we may have been able to find a better deal but we did not have more time. We will be receiving our 1/4 of cow this week! Hopefully on Wednesday or Thursday! Nathan's parents are also getting 1/4 of cow...it was great that we could split half of the cow! 

We are very lucky to have been able to get half of a cow! One of my great friend's dad raises cows on his land. Every so often he will put up a cow for processing. Thankfully since we asked he decided that he could do this for our family! 

Check with local farmers in your area and see if this is a possibility for you and your family. This can save you money and time!

I am looking for this to last us up to a year...depending on how well the meat freezes. Having this meat will be a huge treat for Nathan and I because I will say that sometimes we do not have the money for the high prices for meat in the store. We eat a lot of chicken. :-D 

If I could, I would totally have my own chickens and cows. Too bad we live in the city. Keep your eye out for a picture of our stock up on meat soon!
