Ground Turkey for 6 Meals! $1.66 per meal is pretty cheap!

Yesterday Safeway had ground turkey in a 3lb package for $5.00 so I grabbed 2 of them and I want show you how I split them up to get 6 meals out of them! We don't eat ground beef so if I want meals that require ground meat like meatballs or tacos or shepard's pie then I use ground turkey. I would actually be fine going meatless all the time but my husband wants meat so I have to include meat. I just split each package into 3 equal parts, if you buy an individually wrapped 1lb package of ground turkey, same brand, same fat content, it costs at least $3.99 if not more and I refuse to pay that even if it is convenient.

So you can see I got six 1lb packages of turkey to put in the freezer and my cost was only $1.66 per pound. Just by doing a little extra work ahead time you can save yourself from having to buy the individually wrapped packages that cost $3.99 or more. This another way I am able to make most of our meals around $5.00 for the whole thing. You can see the other ways to do this on my How to make $5.00 meals for your family tab.


  1. We also eat turkey instead of ground beef, it is so cush better for you. We also split large blocks of cheese up the same way.

  2. I buy turkey on sale and grind it up.
