‘A quarter of a cow, half a pig and half a lamb’: Extreme bargain hunter fills her freezer with a YEAR’s supply of meat – and reveals how she did it for just $660
- A woman based in Queensland has shared her incredible meat haul on Facebook
- She visited two separate factory outlets to procure her range of proteins
- The lady spent $110 at one outlet and $550 as the others getting beef and pig
- It works out to be a spend of $12.50 a week which she called ‘not too bad’
An extreme bargain hunter has spent $660 stocking her freezer with meat that will last her an entire 12 months – and she only had to visit two stores to get it.
The Queensland woman, who posted about her epic meat haul on Facebook, said she drove to the Ingham’s factory outlet and Deagons Meats in Brisbane to procure her protein.
‘Well and truly stocked,’ the woman wrote in a budgeting group.

‘I spent $110 at Ingham’s and $550 at Deagons Meats. Both are seriously worth the journey if you’re on the Gold Coast.’
Her stash included a quarter of a cow, half a pig and half a lamb, which she said she’ll be able to dice into mince for spaghetti bolognese, bacon and roast dinners, among other things.
She calculated that the total spend will be $12.50 a week and it should last her for a total of 12 months.
Commenting that the meat is ‘very good quality’, the woman said the three-hour round trip to the outlets was worth the effort.
Another woman in the group complimented her saving abilities and said she uses a similar system in her home.
‘Good work! May I suggest investing in a vacuum sealer? We’re only two adults and every two years I get half a beast, half a pig, a few lambs and chicken and I vacuum seal the meat, so it lasts longer,’ she said.

Some suggested putting her ziplock bags into water, which works in the same way the vacuum sealer does.
She purchased a few extra boxes of crispy chicken tenders and Deli style chips from Aldi to kit out the rest of her freezer.
While some suggested this was ‘too much’ for their own household, for those who enjoy bulk buying – and like a snag on the BBQ – it’s a worthwhile approach.
