    Love hitting the meat section on stuff marked down. Certified Angus beef rib eyes, new York steak.... all on sale ready to eat. Wife laughs but this has become a habit with food prices these days. I bring em home and grill em JP on the green egg.
    Not because we need to, I do it because it makes sense. And when it don't make dollars..... it don't make cents.

    It is about to expire. If you use it immediately you are Kool and the Gang.

    I bought some grass fed beef at Trader Joes and got violently ill. Their refrigeration might not be optimal.

    Yeah maybe. I like a lot of their products but the employees always seem like a bunch of dirty hippies more concerned about socializing than anything. I could envision perishables sitting on the stock room floor til they get around to it.

    In one of our groceries, the "manager's specials" are usually green, smelly meat, that has been heavily "Preseasoned" to mask the appearance and smell.
