I first look for "Manager's Specials". If that is not enough, then I look for chuck meat on sale. Next I then grind my own burger meat and mix in any seasonings for them that I would normally do if I were buying pre-ground meat. I make 1/4 pound 'bugers and wrap them individually for the freezer.

The best thing would be to buy the meat fresh each time I make burgers, but when there's only 2 people, there's going to be some meat leftover, and what other choice but to freeze it? I read of someone who used to brown the ground beef and then freeze it. If she was making a recipe that called for browned ground beef she used her frozen browned ground beef. I don't know about that one.
Maybe from me? I do that, but I fry it up with chopped onion. I freeze it on foil or waxed paper on a baking sheet, so it isn't in one big clump. Then I put it in a bag and it's handy for lots of stuff. Sometimes I do that if I bought ground beef and didn't get around to cooking it. I do this before it goes off.
