Im curious where you get your meat from? Do you pay full grocery store price or do you go elsewhere? For my raw meat I get all chicken and turkey scraps from work (I work at a restaraunt). Sometimes I get rabbit and venison from trophy hunters in the area but this is very rare. Anytime I wanted beef I would pay full grocery store price but now I found a little butcher shop close by that gives me a grocery bag full of meat scraps and ground beef (human quality stuff, it just got caught in the machine so it doesnt have the perfect ""string texture"" and therefore grocery stores wont accept it and people wont buy it - picky pricks LOL) for $1/bag. Same price for a grocery bag full of bones. I just sift through the bags keepign what I want and tossing things like rib tips and portion it all to freeze. This source has cut down on my food bills so much!!!! I save on kibble too, woohoo!
