Good News for Your Holiday Grocery Budget!

Friday, December 16, 2016

This post is funded by The Beef Checkoff and brought to you by The Motherhood.  All opinions in this blog are my own.

For everyone getting ready to cook for the holidays, I've got some great news. This season, beef retail prices are down nearly 10 percent from the highest prices in late 2014, making it easier on your wallet. This is even better news when you're planning those holiday meals! Keep reading to get expert tips on how to get the best deals on beef this holiday and every day, and some delish recipes that will have your family asking "What's for dinner?!"

Have you ever had sticker shock at the grocery store? I know it seems like prices for everything are climbing with no end in sight, but not so for beef this holiday season. You can expect to be seeing lower prices at the meat case in your grocery retailer (if not now, then very soon!) Take advantage of these prices as you shop for roasts, steaks and ground beef for the holidays.

Prices are actually the lowest they've been in years, so now is the perfect time to stock up not only for those holiday meals, but for your everyday meals too.

When I heard, I couldn't wait to share. I know that it's good news for a lot of families, including my own. When holiday hosting rolls around, it's very welcome news indeed!

One of my favorite ways to save on meat is to stock up when the prices are at their lowest. With beef, it's a cinch to wrap and freeze it for another day's meal (just remember to label it too!)
