When fresh meats are nearing their expirations, grocery stores will mark them as Manager's specials and sell them at discount. I like to stock up on Manager's Specials and either prepare them immediatley or freeze them. This is how I save big on meat!
Check out the great Manager's Specials I found today at Kroger:
Pork Loin (5 lbs)
Cat Fish (1 lb)
Beef Stew Meat (1 lb)
