Aaargh you guys! I’m spending so much money buying meat for my boys. They get through a massive bag of chicken portions a week, not to mention eggs, apples, frozen bags of mince and fish all from Sainsbury’s/supermarkets at the moment which you can imagine is quite expensive (well, it’s not too bad… I reckon I spend about £20 a week on them). Our local butcher is a bit rubbish, all he ever has is beef stock bones which are great for teeth cleaning bones but that’s all really. Is there anywhere where I can buy cheap meat in bulk? We only have a normal drawer freezer, which is a pain. Thanks in advance!November 15, 2008 at 3:36 pm #85205leotiMember

Can they not leave it outside somewhere safe? Or with a neighbour? They always tell me when they delivering and either hide it behind my wall or leve with next door 🙂November 18, 2008 at 9:16 pm #85217
Not really Sarah – unless they chuck it over the gate – leave anything outside our house will probably get nicked ::) 🙁November 20, 2008 at 8:57 pm #85218AnonymousGuest

Kiz I couldn’t find the post about sourcing food?
