alright we’re gonna talk a little bit about how I save money on organic meat now over the years I’ve heard multiple medical professionals talk about the importance of buying organic meat in organic dairy
but I’ve always struggled with this because it’s always been so stinkin
expensive so I’ve always been kind of keeping my eye out looking for ways to
kind of save money on organic meat and really I’ve just wanted to get the
healthiest meat possible for my family without spending tons of tons of money
so that leads me to the thing that has worked the best for me so far so about a
year and a half ago I signed up for this service called Butcherbox and what they
do is it’s a monthly box that comes to your door full of meat that you order
you get to pick it out yourself and they offer a variety of cuts from free-range
organic chicken to a whole bunch of different cuts of grass-fed beef to some
heritage breed pork which I don’t even know what that is because I don’t eat
pork, but and they also have wild Alaskan salmon so I’ve just been in love
with the options that they provide and then on top of that the convenience of
heaven is delivered to my house once a month has been really really great now
I’m someone who loves to shop at Whole Foods but as we all know hopefully this
is crazy expensive so I try to limit the amount of times I go to Whole Foods but
what’s exciting is that a lot of the meat that I get from Butcherbox is
actually a higher quality and better than a lot of the meat at the counter
over at Whole Foods so if you’ve shopped it to Whole Foods meat counter before
you know that they have five different levels of meat basically quality that
they offer and so the lowest level is basically a little bit better than your
average grocery store and the highest level is basically where the cow is like
a pet and it has a name and it’s massaged every day and that kind of
free-rangeness if you will you know I know this differs from location and
location but at our Whole Foods most of the meat at the meat counter falls in
that lowest category one level and at the same time most of the meat that I
get from Butcherbox falls into the category probably about three level so
if the meat being higher quality wasn’t good enough the meat is actually
considerably cheaper than if I were buying at Whole Foods even the lower
quality all right so before I signed up for Butcherbox one of the things I was
concerned about it how are they gonna get frozen meat to my doorstep
especially in the summer and keep it frozen and so I’m now in my second
summer with them and I’ve just been so impressed that they’ve been able to do
this successfully and basically what I understand is that they just
measure out the appropriate amount of dry ice for each box depending on your
geographic location and then it’s just stays frozen and we even had one
instance where we weren’t able to pick up our box off of a porch for up to like
24 hours after it arrived and the meat was still super cold yeah another thing
I was kind of concerned about when I first started with them was what type of
meat am I going to get and how much choice do I have
and initially when I started they only had curated boxes meaning they’d send a
box with whatever meat they wanted to put in it and hope you liked it but
they’ve since rolled out a custom box which allows you and I to select
whatever cuts we want and then have them shipped to us and then we can add on
additional things if we want and it just gives you tons and tons of flexibility
to pick out whatever meat you actually want whatever you’re actually going to
eat and so the way my family does this is we just use this one monthly box as
our month-long supply of meat that we get so not only does it save us a trip
to the grocery store it’s also something I just want to think about anymore
because we just always have meat in the freezer alright so if you even in other
questions about Butcherbox that I can help with definitely leave them down in
the comments below and I will answer them as soon as I can

    Can you order once when you need meat,or its a monthly subscription.

  • Y Payne Post author

    I heard about the Butcher Box… (Good things)
    I plan to order one starting in September.
    Thanks for the video! 👍

  • Tanya Ezrol Post author

    Love how practical you get! I too have been trying to go organic but the cost is just so much higher. Thanks for the tip!

  • Ron DuBois Post author

    Nice review. I've used Omaha Steaks in the past and enjoyed their products. I'll give this a try and see how it compares.

  • Elias Fairfield Post author

    Bob – thanks for this. My favorite take-away from the video was the mental-minimalist idea of not having to put mental energy into shopping for meat. That's valuable!

  • Jelaya Fairfield Post author

    Great overview of butcher box! My husband and I have considered it and this video really cleared up some concerns I had regarding price since you took the time to compare it to whole foods. I also loved how you mentioned that you no longer have to think about meat since you just always have a supply in your fridge. That's something I'm always wanting- to free up mental bandwidth. For us, between living 45 minutes away from a grocery store and having to spend a lot of time, gas and mental energy every time we drive to the city, the cost of all those things seem to make the higher cost of meat possibly work out to be about the same. Thanks for making this video!

    I've never heard of Butcher Box so thanks for the info. I will check it out!

  • Shannon C Post author

    Ooh, good to know that Butcher Box now offers customized options. We have a large family (7 kids), so the subscription options are still a little cost heavy for us. We have some local farmers in the area who offer some options. You have to buy a ton at one time to get the cost savings, but for us, we're thinking that it might be a good fit. We'll see.

    How many pounds per box? How many people does a box feed And how much are the boxes?

  • SeedTime Money Post author

    For anyone interested in checking them out, they are currently running a "Free Ground Beef For Life" promotion for new members, and you can get more details here: – wish they would have had this when I signed up!

  • baa baa Post author

    Organic meat is such an oxymoron it's ridiculous that we have to actually pay extra for our food to be natural and normal what it joke

  • Freedom USA Post author

    Buthcher Box suggestion…. they should let you enter the site from your link to explore before signing up for life free ground beef. When it looked lije I'd be forced to sign uo just to look around, I exited the site, which is what I always do when a site is looking for that sort of thing. God bless you guys, it's a good idea!

  • Tammy Hantis Post author

    Great video and an ongoing issue for us too! I will check out this service as well .im looking for an honest company that doesn’t just foo-foo the customers
    “Say what you mean and mean what you say when supplying us with a product .”
    That’s what I’m looking for as well as I’m on a budget more so than I used to be but I’ll definitely try them . Thanks again and look forward to viewing more videos . Thank you !

  • Donnell Cole-Price Post author

    I’m pretty impressed. I’m curious to see if there’s a plan that works for singles.

    Thanks for sharing!!!

    I love companies that make eating clean food more affordable! Sometimes it's cheaper to pay your farmer than your doctor these days, though :). I had Butcher Box for a month and everything we received was delicious! Just wish the mail carrier didn't ruin two of my shipments. BB was very kind to make it right, even though it wasn't their fault.

  • Yvonne DeVaughn Post author

    That's a good idea

  • Liz G. Post author

    thank you for the info, I have actually been thinking about buying organic meats for some time. I will give it a try.

  • linda parker Post author

    This is great but I don’t want shipments ongoing the following month ! For a single family this is not Convenient for some. Thank you so much.

  • linda parker Post author

    Definitely need tips o saving money !!!

  • Lorraine Mayberry Post author

    Most of Whole Foods produce is not organic or non-GMO. It's still priced higher than Organix at the local grocer

  • Metro Alphie Post author

    Does the meat come sliced (in serving sizes) or does one have to cut from each frozen chunk to thaw out as you need it? Hope to hear from you since this is what's keeping me from purchasing. Thank you

  • Jennifer Davis Post author

    How about NOT eating it!!!

  • Jan loves many Post author

    I like this idea but not that you have to give your info before even viewing the packages available.

  • Helena Quinn Post author

    It's to bad it has to be frozen.. but this was helpful. Thanks Bob

  • Clio T Post author

    Thank you. We get local organic meats.and we've had it sent from Black Diamond in Virginia. Both say they are beyond organic. We're going to check this company out. Always can stand to save a few bucks.

  • chris barbera Post author

    Bad reviews for this alledged Organic meat. Do some research, customer service is bad, website rarely updated so many people received orders they didn't want. Stay away!!

  • Victoria Layrisse Post author

    Even pristine organic meats are still high on the food chain, making their flesh a significant source of environmental toxins.
    The China Study demonstrated that the consumption of animal protein is the genesis of most major chronic disease. Consider saving even more. Spices are everything, and Vegan chefs have really made incredible progress. See Ramses Bravo, Chef AJ for the most delicious recipes. Paleo is a distraction from the science which is unambiguous.

    I don’t really see how this is better… $129/month for 8.5-11 lbs of meat, so that’s roughly $13/lb?? That’s insane. I get organic grass fed beef at the grocery store for $5/lb.

  • Favored4life Post author

    The link doesn't work for me

  • L Lovell Post author

    I live in Southern California where most items are usually more expensive than many places; however, I do not think $8/lbs. for organic chicken is a good price! I am not sure how you are saving money. I think they are expensive!
