A Quick Comparison of Vegetable Seeds to Silver Dollars The small seed envelopes available for sale at hardware stores and supermarkets are generally priced between $0.97 to $1.69 per package.

Beef 101 Infographic suggests buying a whole side. I wrote a post at the end of March about how you can lower meat costs by purchasing sides of beef. The infographic below is along the same lines, but contains more information about the health benefits of beef, and offers a simple breakdown of the different types of cuts you can buy at the grocery store, and some easy guides to shopping for beef.

I find that guides like these can be really helpful for novice shoppers and seasoned pros alike when it comes to meat—I think it’s never a bad idea to reinforce best practices. Even better than that may be that in buying a side of beef, you’re more likely to purchase from local livestock farmers, which helps support your local economy. More of that and prices ultimately come down. And when your food travels fewer fossil fuel miles, the environmental circumstances for fostering healthier meat production increases, resulting in better meat for you, which may in turn lead to lower health care costs down the line.
