Buy in Bulk

In my house we eat a lot of chicken, pork chops, and ground chuck. I'm a member of Sams club and we buy these things in bulk. For example you can get a pack of split chicken breast at Sams for about $14 and you can get about 4 meals out of one pack. Same applies to the pork chops and ground chuck.
