A Resourceful Tip - Deli Meat Alternative

I love sandwiches - Seriously, a big sandwich with a big glass of milk is one of my very favorite meals.

However, paying deli prices for sandwich meat is not one of my favorite things and I have never done it.

Instead I keep an eye out for "sliceable" meat in the larger meat department cases. Sliced deli meat is about $6/lb on sale, right? In the non-deli meat cases you might find a small turkey breast or ham portion for only $3 or $4/lb. You can take it straight over to the deli and they'll slice it for you - At No Charge!

I actually have my own meat slicer (Thanks Janet & Naomi!) that I received as a gift about 5 years ago. It's not fancy or expensive, but it does the job and I love slicing my own meat & cheese for trays of cold cuts or crackers.

I also love having sliced meat handy for my sandwich addiction and my sandwich is so much tastier knowing the meat was purchased at a great price!
