All purchased during September at Costco on Kauai, HI.

1) Italian sausage. Normally, $13.99 for a 5 lb. package. It was 2 dollars off per package. I bought 3 packages and averages out to be $2.40/lb.

2) Pork loin for $1.99/lb. and $2.50 off per package. I bought an 8 lb. package that averages to be $1.67/lb.

3) Top Round or Bottom Round Beef Roast. Very little fat on it. I bought an 8 lb. package for $3.39 lb. It wasn't on sale.

This 31 pounds of meat averages to be $2.47/pound.

I also got 2 lbs. of poke ahi tuna for $4.75/lb. at Safeway. It's normally $11.99/lb. However, it was on sale for $9.99/lb. and discounted in the bargain bin for 50% off. Then my wife and I get to use her parents 5% Safeway Employee discount to bring it down to $4.75/lb.

Not bad for Kauai.

Awesome mate. That should last at least a month unless you've got a big family :-)

Your post reminded me to get going on making some homemade tuna poke... fresh yellow fin tuna here is about $5lb (and a lot cheaper if you know a fisherman)... I just love the stuff. Ate bowl after bowl when we were in Hilo a couple of years ago.

Thanks for the inspiration!
