Default Concerns about the Raw Diet

I am set to get a puppy in just over 5 weeks and can't wait. I'm heavily considering the Raw diet but have a few concerns.

After the dog eats and has remnants in and around his mouth, won't he be spreading potentially dangerous (to humans at least) bacteria around the house and directly to me if he licks or nudges me?

I don't have a very big freezer so I won't be able to buy in bulk too often, so I'm a bit worried about price. Don't get me wrong, I will gladly pay more for the dog to be healthy, but if there is a solid dog food I can get instead that is good for him and easier to feed than raw meat and bones, I'd rather go that route.

Any input is appreciated.
