I can’t speak for any other retailers out there, but I’m a fan of Costco, the biggest and best of them all.
I’m not sure why, but when it comes to prices on wholesale meat, Costco gets the short end of the stick.
I recently decided to go to Costco, hoping to buy some sausage and chicken, but there’s a catch: It costs me $2,400.
That’s a lot of money to spend on a meatless meal that is essentially useless for the rest of the day.
In the end, I got the exact same sausage and poultry for only $1,200.
And if you’re looking for an economical, low-maintenance way to save on meat, this is the perfect way to go.
You’re not going to regret it.

My favorite retailer is a huge influence on my shopping habits, as they offer a lot to my family.
But my wife and I have a long-standing beef with Costco.
Costco is an expensive retailer, and its prices are always out of whack.
For example, I’ve seen prices on sausage go from $1.25 to $3.75, and it’s pretty crazy.
But I digress.
We’re not alone in our ire.
Costco’s price tag is outrageous, even by its own standards.
For instance, the $1 steak that you can buy at Costco is supposed to be $2.80.
And there are times when it goes up, or down, by as much as 20%.
And there’s no way to know which meat is being sold on Costco’s shelves.
Costco, for its part, claims that they are trying to “drain the swamp,” which is basically an ad for Amazon Prime, a free, one-time membership that lets you get everything you need to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the best deals on everything from books to movies.
But it’s a hollow promise.
Even if Costco’s pricing is reasonable, it’s hard to justify spending more money for a product that is supposed and even expected to be low-cost.
If Costco’s prices are justified, they’re not.
You’ll end up spending way more money.
How to Use the Best Costco Deals to Save for the HolidaysWhen it comes time to shop for the holidays, Costco can’t afford to sell you something that you won’t want to keep.
In fact, it can’t sell you anything at all.
So when you get into the Costco store, don’t expect to find a “free” food item.
Instead, you’ll find a bunch of other “freebies” and “sales.”
The good news is that Costco has an easy way to make it even easier.
I won’t say which items they sell, but you’ll be able to find freebies that include, for instance, free samples of a lot more items than you’ll ever need, like meatballs or pizza crusts.
Or you can get a free gift that includes some great-tasting and cheap meals.
The freebies are all in the store, but if you want to get a discount, you can always order online, and the website will show you what items are available.
For example, Costco will show the same item for $8.50, but they’ll also sell you a $2 steak for $1 less.
That way, you save $2 for a meal.
The trick is to order the item and then pay when you arrive, which is easier with Costco than with any other retailer.
I found that ordering the item online saved me $15, or about $1 per order.
And it’s not just meatballs and pizza crust, either.
I also found freebies like meatless burgers and turkey wings that were just as good as the meatballs.
You can also get free items like a homemade cheese sauce, a baked potato, and an orange sauce.
You get the idea.
You can also save money by ordering online and paying in cash.
Costco doesn’t sell credit cards, so it’s very hard to tell if you’ll get a better deal or not.
If you’re on a budget, you might consider using a credit card to save money.
But if you don, Costco is one of the worst retailers out here.
