We could all use help with our grocery bill, and buying in bulk is one way to cut your bill. But you don't have to join a warehouse club to get a bargain. We found there is a simple way to get chicken, beef and pork without paying any fees.

The company is called Zaycon Foods and they host several bulk food events throughout the year. They usually sell one item per event, usually chicken or beef but that has translated to big saving for some shoppers.

The long car line was an indication that word got around.

"A friend e-mailed me," shopper Rosemary Ohland said.

"My wife heard about it online," shopper Bo Worrel said.

The deal is 40 pounds of chicken at a $1.49 a pound.

"It's too good of a deal to pass up," shopper Christy Christensen said.

"You can't get this deal in any of the grocery stores," shopper Katrina Clark said.

The company that is hosting this food event is called Zaycon Foods. The business is based in Washington state and sells food like chicken, pork, beef and fruit in bulk all over the country including right here in Houston.

You order online and then you pick up at several locations in the Houston area.

"They do it every two to three months, they will have something different; so right now they are offering they chicken," super saver Erin Libranda said.

It was Libranda's first time buying in bulk. This month's deal is a case of 40 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts for $59.60.

"I ordered two cases," shopper Kenya Johnson said.

There is no limit on how many cases you can purchase but keep in mind, you will have to separate the chicken and store it once you get home, so freezer space is a must.

"We have a big deep freeze to stick it all in there, and that will last us a good three months, definitely a cheap deal," Libranda said.

Libranda says if you are wondering about the quality, Zaycon Foods officials say their chicken is 100 percent natural chicken with no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients, and the chicken is fresh off the truck.

Zaycon will hold several bulk food events through out the year. It's usually just limited to one item like beef or chicken.

"This is great, I think it's is wonderful. I can't wait to get home and try it out," shopper Karen McNeil said.
