Steak for $1.75!
I ran out to Food City today to use some coupons for FREE items before they expire (on the 31st!). I asked a very nice lady behind the meat counter if they ever put meat on clearance. She informed me that it only stays on their shelves for 5 days. It is on the regular shelf for 4 days, in the clearance section (at the end of all the meat) for 1 day and then thrown away if it isn't sold. She said they put new meat on clearance every morning. I decided to check it out and saw a Laura's Lean Beef Strip Steak (0.55lb). It was normally 11.99/lb, marked down to $5.00/lb. I had a coupon for $1 off any Laura's Lean Beef (available here, sign up for newsletter). After the sale and coupon I got a 0.55lb strip steak for $1.75 (it was even the brand I like to buy)!
