How to save money and plan ahead with meat

We don’t buy a lot of meat since we have a freezer full of game meat but when we do buy meat we go to Sam’s Club.  At Sam’s we buy the huge packages of chicken breasts, pork loin and beef brisket.  When we get home Frank separates the chicken breasts and cuts up the pork loin and beef brisket and vacuum packs them into meal size portions.  We then put them in the freezer and the day we want chicken or pork loin, we take out a package in the morning to thaw.

We use a FoodSaver Premier Series V1205 Vacuum Sealing Kit. Frank would like one of the big, commercial, restaurant quality ones.  Maybe someday, but in the meantime, this one does the job.
