Spend less, live more: Part I – Meat

Although initially reticent about returning to Benton County and extremely doubtful of the area’s ability to provide to my counter culture lifestyle, I am truly amazed at all of the wonderful options. Yes, paleo eating, organic, local, and seasonal are all still the minority, but it can be done… rather cheaply too.

The great thing about living in West Tenn. is that everything is CHEAP. The cost of living is cheaper, our grassfed meat is cheaper, our Amish dairy is cheaper, and most of our wildlife is free. Yum.

As I have mentioned before, one of the objections to my lifestyle that I hear most is I cannot afford that. While you may not be able to afford buying everything I recommend in my newspaper articles/recipes at the store, I want to share all the useful tricks I’ve learned to spend less on food and groceries.

Enjoy this video. Part I is about meat! Where can you get it? How much is it? Etc.

Let me know what you think. Here are the links to the websites I mention in it (and perhaps some I left out) ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Avalon Acres (Hohenwald, Tenn.) – Meat/Veggie/(Dairy) CSA in Summer/Winter
  • M4-D Ranch (Memphis, Tenn.) – Pasture raised beef & pork
  • J&J Farms (Lexington, Tenn.) – Grassfed beef & lamb, free-range chickens/eggs
  • Bulk Natural Foods – site I recently heard of (thanks A) that is a great resource for grassfed meat, CSAs, dairy, and bulk food items. They deliver some things to the WalMart parking lot in Camden.

*Note: I’m not sure why my video uploaded sideways because I did not record it that way… will find out ASAP. Don’t crick your neck in the process! ๐Ÿ™‚

Know of anything I have missed??? Post it in the comments below and I’ll get the word out! ๐Ÿ™‚
