Re: How come the grocery stores don't have the marked down meat for a dollar or two like they used to??
About 30 years ago I worked for a little "Mom and Pop" grocery store. When the meat was getting old (like a day or two away from starting to smell) he'd put it in a pan, get a bottle of the cheapest barbecue sauce we sold, and liberally sauce it. It was then sold for MORE than the fresh meat, and the customers paid that high price for the cheap barbecue sauce too, since it was by the pound. Don't know what happened to it if it didn't sell after that - maybe he took it home and ate it himself!

But I agree with you about the marked-down meat - because of my low income I get my meat almost exclusively from the mark-down bin and it's really sad the sort of meat which eventually makes its' way there. And they don't mark it down all that much either, IMHO!!

Next time you're at the store, ask the meat department manager or a general manager which times or days they tend to mark down the meat for quicker sale. Just have to freeze it or use it within a couple of days since it will be closer to being off.

Re: How come the grocery stores don't have the marked down meat for a dollar or two like they used to??
It used to be fresh fried chicken was cooked at the Wal-Mart every morning. After 10-11 pm whatever was left would sell for around a dollar. Within a year or two later (about 2008-09) the chicken at that time may have had a reduced price of $4.99. I also noticed when chicken around this time frame that sold for $4.99 then started selling for about $8.99 or $9.99. It got ridiculous to the point where chicken was somewhat of a mainstay because so expensive I was priced out of the market. Then the chicken started having less meat on the bones and not tasting as good. Weird shit.

I might buy fried chicken baskets now every 6 months.

Stores in my area still have marked down meat...they put it out around 10-11 A.M. so if I don't get there around that time it is all gone.

It always goes really fast where I live.

Our local place still does. It isn't very often you see it with beef, but they do mark down chicken pretty frequenly. The brand they carry is Gold N Plump chicken and I can get a $1 off coupon for it. I'll usually wait until it goes on sale and stock up a bit. I've noticed that the reduced price went up too, but its not that bad for the moment. They used to mark down to 1.99 now its 2.99. When you consider the coupon plus you're getting anywhere from 5-10 bucks worth of meat for that price its not bad.
