Me living in a apartment complex, I'm very limited as to how much meat and other stuff I can get in there. I find myself shopping every two weeks faithfully...lol... When I was younger, my grandmother hardly ever went to the grocery store for meats, it was always other things. When she did go grocery shopping or to a butcher, she got tons of meat. Wrapped it up herself and stored it away. Turkeys and Hams things of that, she would buy when she caught a sale and never had to worry about holidays rushing to buy either or...lol How long do you keep your meats in your freezer? How often you find yourself having to go grocery shopping for more meats?

i usually have to go shopping every 2 weeks or so for the bigger items like meat.it usually gets eaten within that time,so it's not in there long at all. turkeys i've had in there up to a month.i buy extras after the holidays to use later.

Yes, sounds just about what I do also. I go shopping about every two weeks. I think I have maybe one or two packages of meat left

Although I keep the meat in deep-freeze, I exhaust it within the week ,i.e 5 days of buying it.It's not a conscious effort I make ,but I always end up exhausting before the week is over because I would go for shopping again during next week.So,I don't really need to store it.

Yeah I understand that, I wish I could, I just don't like going grocery shopping. I can't wait to move. I need a deep freezer

I keep my meats and chicken up to 6 months in the freezer. As long as they are wrapped well, so they do not get frost or freezer burn, it's fine. I even freeze my bread up to 3 months, so it doesn't get moldy. I shop only when I need food, usually every week. I don't stock up lots in the freezer anymore.

we usually go every week- and do stock up when there are buy one get one free sales.....during the fall and winter, however, we don't have to buy that much because my fiance is an avid hunter, and we usually have about 3 or 4 deer per season in our freezer. Venison is so good, and good for you....and it is best when you do your own butchering!
