Aunt Bee has been on a cost-cutting binge of late including buying Opie some too large shoes and sugar in bulk, all to save a few dollars. When she hears that the new butcher shop in town is selling beef at a saving of 10 cents a pound, she's immediately interested. The only catch is that to get the saving, you have to buy a whole side of beef - 150 lbs or so. That's fine with Bee since she has a freezer - mind you she hasn't used it for years and when it breaks down, she refuses to call the repairman from Mount Pilot because of the cost. She left with the embarrassing choice of going back to her old butcher, Mr. Foley, for help. It also leaves Andy with only one choice. Written by

Hanging on coat hooks on the Taylor's back porch wall next to the old freezer is a well used and heavily paint-soiled fedora-style hat and an old painting shirt or smock. They are there in the late evening when Aunt Bee comes clean to Andy about the 150 pounds of beef in the freezer. Then early the next morning, when Andy discovers Aunt Bee sitting on the porch minding the old freezer, the two items on the wall have become two perfectly clean and different items-a baseball cap and jacket.
