On one recent night, the Foxes enjoyed two nice New York strip steaks, which cost them $6.30 a pound. Had they bought them from their local supermarket, the price would be about $16 a pound. The savings for cheaper cuts of meats, such as ground beef, aren't as dramatic.
One thing that may discourage people from buying in bulk is that consumers have to pay the full price up front, which can be difficult for some to swallow. But the bonus is that when food prices fluctuate your savings are locked in.
