A few weeks ago, I mentioned a tip about getting organic meats at a discount, by just checking the organic meat section for soon to expire meat (usually 3 days or less from expiration date) and asking the butcher to mark it down. Have you tried this yet?? Since starting this, I’ve been getting organic meat discounted on every trip to the store! Organic meat doesn’t sell like standard meat does, it’s likely you’ll be able to find meat close to it’s expiration date frequently, no matter what store you shop at.It also helps to be persistent. There’s one lady that clearly has issues with taking out her pricing gun. A few weeks ago, there was meat that was expiring the next day. She took it from me and said they can’t sell me meat that will expire in a day (not true). Today, I brought her meat that expires in two days and she said they can’t mark it down until a day before expiration (same lady, different story….). I asked her to double check with the manager in back and she marked it down right away for me without checking with the manager. So, if someone gives you a hard time, you can always talk to the manager. The manager should be happy to mark it down as they end up throwing it away if it doesn’t sell.
