Zaycon Fresh is a way to save big money on your grocery budget by purchasing meat in bulk. I’ve written about Zaycon quite a few times in the past. If saving money on your groceries or getting more organized with your meal plans and healthy eating is high on your resolutions list for 2017, I invite you to take a closer look at Zaycon.
Start by creating a free account. Then, you’ll be able to view upcoming sales events for your area. Pay upfront, and then pick up your meat at the time/location for your area.
