One good way to cut down on meat bills is to look carefully around the fresh meat counter. Very often there will be either a freezer or a refrigerated section of meat that was cut and wrapped the day before or earlier in the morning if you are shopping later. Since it is no longer considered "fresh", it is placed together in this section with the price marked down, sometimes as much as 50%. The meat is perfectly fine, but remember to either freeze it immediately or use it that evening. I have been able to get some very nice chioce cuts this way that I otherwise would not have been able to get.
