ZeroCorpse: Yes, yes, we get it. All of you with big freezers and the money to spare are buying cows and having them butchered. WE GET IT.

You try fitting half a cow in an apartment, though. This is not an option for everybody.

Is your login bemoaning your lack of storage options?

ImmaHoopyFrood: I picked up my steer last week.  Filled the bed of my Ranger.  Almost 800 lbs of hanging weight at $1.90/lb to the rancher and .50/lb to the butcher.  A little higher than usual on the butcher but we got hotdogs and sausage made.  Only grain and grass.  No feedlot.  No growth h-mones.

HeadLever: Smeggy Smurf: I just got a raise so I'm eating more beef. It sucks to be you if you're poor

You don't even have to be rich.  Just head over to a rancher's spread with a friend right after preg-testing and choose a fat dry cow that isn't 12 years old.   Feed up for a month or so with the grain/hay of your choice. Butcher, hang for 3 weeks and cut up and split it between you two.

Okay, my fiancee did the pee-on-the-test-kit thing, and the little label is blue.  We're not pregnant.

Now we're at the rancher's, surrounded by cows.

I'm not sure what happens next.

Well if you just get rid of the dead hookers, you'd have lots of room.

star_topology: Carth: You shouldn't be eating beef more than once a week anyway. Maybe the price increase will force people to eat a little healthier.

6/10. Will get the vegan hipsters for sure.

Yeah, vegan hipsters are known for only eating beef once a week. Do you hear yourself talk?

I read that as "beer" shortage and started to panic.

ecmoRandomNumbers: Here in the middle of nowhere, it's much cheaper to go in halfsies with somebody and buy an entire Hereford cow and pay the butcher (we have two butchers in town who deal with elk, deer, and cattle) to process the different cuts. You can fill your deep freeze with half a cow.

Yep. I did this. I'm flush with steaks.

Now that I think of it, this explains why all the neighborhood dogs seem to love my yard. Word's gotten out, apparently.

dickfreckle: Even ground beef is getting stupidly priced now. I know that prices rise, but it would be nice if my earnings kept up with gas and groceries. I used to never think about those weekly expenses. Now I do.

/toyed with the idea of clipping coupons, but no one wants to be that guy

A lot of stores are allowing you to load coupons on to a store loyalty card. Nobody has to know.
