    A lot of it depends where you live.
    I myself do not pay over $1.75 lb. for 85% lean ground beef.
    $1.50 lb. for boneless chicken breast.
    Actually it is super easy to bone out bone in breasts. They are on sale a lot for less than $1. So I have been getting those and boning them out.

    I just paid .77 a pound for chicken breasts, they were not skinned or boned, I did it myself. I bought alot and put in foodsaver bags & in the freezer. It will hold me until the next big sale.

    I dont buy beef from the store, we get it by the half.

    those are great prices in my opinion. I usually get the boneless skinless on sale for $1.99/lb and stock up.

    the hamburger I buy in chubs at Costco. It is lean beef and it's in their freezer section.

    In my neck of the woods both of those prices would be considered extremely reasonable! I generally pay $1.99 for skinless, boneless chicken breast (on sale) and $2.99 a pound for ground sirloin...

    Here, boneless chicken breast is usually about $1.99 regularly. So anything under that, I would think is a good deal. I normally buy regular chicken breast for .99 per pound and just debone them myself. It's not that tough!

    For ground beef, I don't buy ground sirlion, so I don't know what a good price would be for that. I normally just buy extra lean ground beef, and I don't pay over $1.49 per pound for it. It regularly goes on sale for that, so I stock up when it is priced right! Although, with prices going up, I would imagine it's gonna start getting harder to find at that price!

    Those sound like decent prices. Boneless/skinless chicken breast is normally 1.99. ShopRite mailed out a coupon this week for 1.49/lb in 2 weeks. You bet I'm gonna get the biggest pack they have. Sometimes I find markdown split breasts for 1.29/lb but it feels like they're less meaty & I've paid more for bone, so who knows.

    As far as ground beef, I wait till the 85% goes on sale for ~1.99/lb then stock up. If you mean around 93%, then 2.49 is pretty darn good.
