    Gaining on a Budget

    Lets face it, eating right especially during a bulk is expensive. What are some of the ways you guys bulk while saving some money? What are some of the foods you can get on the cheap and still serve their purpose?

    Costco
    My diet is cheap, Lokthans is expensive af but buying in bulk cuts it way down.
    We also try to immediately cut and freeze what we canít use in the next few days to lower the risk of loss and waste.
    If you pay the extra for the executive card, you will end up making money off of it. You make 2% cash back on all purchases to include home and auto/gas. The following year youíll get a cheap and most of it will buy that years membership bt the remainder goes back into your pocket ❤️

    I found a quality local meat market that has good quality for lower price than even Costco. We pay $1.98/lb for boneless skinless breast and thigh meat. It's $1.30 cheaper than Walmart and $1 cheaper than Costco. Buy rice by the 20lb bag, and other things come from Costco. That's about all I got. Otherwise it's just expensive

    I 1000000% agree with the chicken
    We are selective on certain things we buy for sure.

    Also if you have one near you, check out Aldi

    Costco and Walmart for me, mostly Costco. I donít mind paying a bit more for higher quality food. I hate frozen stuff and try to buy everything fresh.

    You're the first I've heard mention Aldi.

    They are hit or miss here.

    True. But their sauces are unmatched. They have a load of low cal options

    THis isnt possible for everyone, but this is what I have going on...
    chickens, raise your own! I have 27 laying hens that each produce one egg a day (sometimes a few of them every other day). So here I am with unlimited egg protein, and the best part? I sell a dozen farm fresh eggs for $4 and they sell like hot cakes. To the point where I am going to increase my flock next spring to keep up with the buying demand and then some.
    In short, I have unlimited eggs to eat and the money I get from selling them basically buys my other meats and veggies. It works out great if you live in an area that allows them and you have a little land and a few spare minutes extra each day to make sure they are well taken care of to make sure they keep laying.

    member here garlic chicken does this also, itís a good gig for someone looking for cheap protein and a good way to help pay for other grocery expenses.

    Bulk oats,rice, whole eggs, bag of potatoes, bananas, chicken thighs or quarters, 85% lean ground beef, whole milk and peanut butter, big bag of frozen veggies too, I spend around $50/week on average but don't have too much variety. Lots of seasonings and homemade marinades.

    WinCo Foods is my place for eating cheap. They have a bulk section that lets me bag my own oats and rice. Then they are pretty competitive in meats so I usually get all of my boneless skinless chicken breast, and all of my 97/3 beef from there. As well as my tilapia for when Im sick of chicken. Frozen veggies seems to be the same price no matter where I shop.
