Lachlan Valley Meats 129 Canberra Ave, Griffith, Australian Capital Territory, Australia

These friendly people sell restaurant quality meats and smallgoods. Rump steak, sausages and chicken breast fillets are usually at least $5.00 to $7.00 per kilo cheaper than other stores. They also sell ice, which has been important for me as I live 64km away from any shops. When I go shopping to fill up the freezer I can take the big esky and top the meat up with ice to get it home safely. They also offer discounts for charity events like school sausage sizzles and so on.

I put aside $50 a week for bulk meat and roughly every three months spend between $200 and $300. I buy everything from mince to roasts as they have almost everything I want cheaper than elsewhere. It is easy to shop there and if you get there before say 10 in the morning, they sometimes have cancelled orders which are further discounted! Sometimes their chickens are more expensive than supermarket specials but overall in the last six years I have saved almost $2000 per year using Lachlan Valley Meats.
