The single biggest expense area of your food budget is for meat, seafood, and poultry. One out of every three dollars spent on food goes to buy steaks, ground beef, chicken, roasts, and other carnivore delights. That amounts to nearly $2,500.00 a year for a family of four.

To save money, plan your weekly menus around the weekly deals. Shop more than one store to get the best deals. If boneless skinless chicken breast is on sale, stock up. If roast is on sale -- plan enough for leftovers. Here are some of the meat, poultry, and seafood deals around central Ohio for the week of Monday, July 25.
