    I'm tired of paying $10 for 6 halves. I'm eating like $30 per day in food, and I can't really afford that. Do I need to go to the mexican markets or something? I don't really like the tyson stuff thats frozen, but I guess you have to "pay to play" right?

    costco has a 4KG box of frozeen boneless skinless chicken breast. I pay 26 bucks canadian and it works out to about 20 good sized pieces. I have 3 or 4 a meal, so it lasts a little while.

    the costco shit is about 2.50 a pound... every month or so a local grocery store should have the shit around 2 a pound, just stock up then... maybe that's only during the summer but who knows.... usual around here is 3 a pound for boneless skinless....

    costco is alright for every day prices but usually isn't that great compared to sale prices elsewhere

    I'd go with costco or sam's club.

    I have a local grocery store near me that sells the meat at 1/2 price if you buy 10lbs at once. I just paid $3/lb for new york strips a couple days ago.
