I have found a butcher in the western suburbs of Melbourne that is not only cheap, but great quality too.
For example, I have purchased a bulk lot of chicken wings which was just over 2kg for $3.56, which is three dinners for me and my husband. I then saw chicken wings in Coles and they were asking $4.00 per kilo!
I also purchased a size 16 chicken for $4.99 and again saw a chicken in Coles, which was smaller, for $9.59.
They stock all sorts of meat, including whole sides, rumps and so on, which the on-site butcher will then slice for you at no extra cost.
Their smallgoods are also fabulous, and they stock all sorts of deli meats, cheeses and dips.
There is also a section of general groceries and frozen foods, which again are so much cheaper. Just take the 1 litre of extra virgin olive oil for $6.99.
And if you have a senior or aged pension card, there is a 10% discount for you on a Wednesday.
Since we have discovered this place we no longer buy meat anywhere else, and we are saving so much money!
