Looking for a quick way to kill your grocery budget? Take a trip down the meat aisle. Premium cuts are outrageous, and budget cuts are usually poor quality. In fact, at most of my grocery stores, all cuts are poor quality.
You’ve probably heard me talk about Zaycon Fresh before and how much it helps our grocery budget while keeping my picky palate happy. If not, check out this post detailing the service and my experience: ZAYCON FRESH: THE BEST AND CHEAPEST WAY TO BUY FRESH MEAT
I noticed over the weekend that Zaycon has added a new cut of meat to the delivery schedule. They’ve added 80/20 ground beef (often referred to as ground chuck) to the December deliveries for just $2.99/lb. I adore the 93/7 beef, especially for tacos, sloppy joes, casseroles, etc., but I prefer a little fattier cut for burgers and meatballs. I’m thrilled to have the option to order both!
They have several deliveries coming up this fall. Each area has a different schedule, so make sure you sign up to see events in your area.
You must order early, and it looks like all events are open for orders now. The dates shown below are the general pick-up dates for the entire country. Pickup is at a single day and time for each city.
