I do. Lots of them.

And I wouldn't risk that 'trick.'

Speaking of roast chicken, I make my own. I can buy a large chicken, roast it, eat some for dinner and make chicken salad sandwiches for myself for several days for about $5.00. It's not as convenient as buying one already made, but if you like to cook and have the time, then it works well. Besides, the one I buy to cook myself is larger for the same price and I don't overcook it drying it out.

My dogs get any leftover food (that is good for them). I cooked the costco chicken in the pressure cooker, add any other meat we didn't eat, saved fat, veggies that aren't going to last, flax meal. Pressure cook for a few hours, pull out all the bones, put it through the food processor to make a pink sludge, freeze in freezer baggies, and mix a tbsp in the night time kibble.

I don’t buy large chicken anymore. We buy game hens from Costco, 6 for $19, every time I roast a game hen, my husband and I share one with lots of homegrown vegetables. Delicious and healthy. No leftovers, much cheaper then buy a $8/$10 from Traders Joe and then having to reuse for other meals. I don’t like the chicken from Costco. Maybe cheap but more fat. Game hen has virtually no fat.

I have Virgin Mobile monthly plan at $35 per month for unlimited talk, unlimited text, and unlimited data though the data slows for 4G to 2G if you use to much (5GB???) per month. They bill my AMEX card each month thus not a pre-paid service. My girlfriend has the same plan She exceeds her data every month. I do not. Great plan.

I had Sprint for years. I finally switched to Consumer Cellular. I found I get better coverage from CC and my bill dropped from $86 to $27 per month. I have no problem not exceeding the data they give me per month. I don't watch movies or play video games on my cell phone. Phone calls and texting are unlimited.

We butterfly chickens or a whole turkey breast and roast in the oven on oven pans with racks. We start out slicing for sandwiches, and after a few days chop the rest for chicken or turkey salad. Great way to stretch a dollar.

When my wife and I go out for dinner, we order one dinner and share it. We save a few bucks and a few calories too

Thank you for that late-breaking news flash.

I'm an atheist and I support the Salvation Army.
