Where do you buy your meat? I think shopping a little more old-school by visiting a neighborhood butcher is such a bigger pleasure (and often a bigger savings) than buying meat from the grocery store.
In New York, I shop at Florence Fine Meat Market, a little storefront in our neighborhood that's been open since 1936. There's classical music on the radio, sawdust on the floor and just about all of the steaks are cut to order from meat pulled from the back. This means you can get the cuts you want (1 inch? 2 inches? You name it) and interact with the butchers themselves. I always get into a conversation about what to do with what cut, or where the meat comes from. And the prices are great.
