Be a Poultry Pro
Instead of opting for a package of deli turkey, buy a turkey breast and roast it. It costs less than half as much (about $3.30 per pound for a whole breast, compared with more than $9 a pound for deli meat), you can make it in a slow cooker and you can serve it for dinner as well as slice it for lunches. Plus, deli turkey can have almost 10 times the amount of sodium as fresh.
- Potential savings: $322 per year, assuming 1 pound of turkey each week, about four sandwiches' worth.
