Living Large on a Shoestring

Published / by Annie

I might live cheap but I do live well. I like to take advantage of sales in order to enjoy life as much as possible. One of the major ways I do this is on food.

I am a huge fan of quality meat. I enjoy a nice steak as much as the next person but I rarely treat myself to them.

Unless I catch them on sale, that is.

The other day my store offered T-bone steaks at $3.99 a pound. In the year I’ve worked there I’ve never seen such a bargain. Normally the steaks cost around $9 a pound though occasionally they offer them on sale for $4.99 a pound.

After work I looked over the selections so we could have a treat. I purchased two thick steaks and carried them home to surprise my daughter.

It was a simple meal. We marinated the steaks and served them with mashed potatoes. We even had enough for leftovers the next day and the mutts got some bones to chew on. Life is really good.
