The holidays are here and as the only one with kids in my family, holiday parties are usually at my house.  The kids don’t like to leave their new toys on Christmas and I like them home in their own beds when the ball drops on New Year’s Eve.  While I love all the planning, decorating, and cooking, I don’t always like the impact these huge dinners have on my budget.

Luckily this season, beef retail prices are down nearly 10 percent from the highest prices in late 2014, making it easier on your wallet. This is great news as we plan for holiday meals!

You can expect to be seeing lower prices at the meat case in your grocery retailer. Take advantage of these prices as you shop for roasts, steaks and ground beef this season.  I sure will be, my husband loves steak, and my taco dip with layers of ground beef is a holiday staple in my house.

This 10% savings will definitely help, especially during a time of the year when so much money is already going out.  However, I am always looking for ways to save on my grocery shopping and The Beef Checkoff has some awesome advice.
