This tip comes from my reader Jenni. This is a great tip for those of you that don’t like to break up your own packages of ground beef….
My husband and I would usually just buy the ground beef in the pre-packaged styrofoam trays. We noticed that we could never find one tray that was exactly one pound. In fact all of them were 1 1/2 – 2 pounds each and most of our recipes only called for one pound of ground beef. So we started going to meat counter just around the corner and asking them to measure one pound of ground beef instead. We saved a lot of money by only buying one pound instead of the extra 1/2 to 1 pound of meat that was pre packaged. It takes only an extra minute or two to have them wrap up the meat, but it stores much nicer and it’s always fresher. It’s also a good idea to talk to the employees working at the counter because sometimes they tell us about upcoming sales. I’ll never buy pre-wrapped ground beef again.
