Grate Your Own Cheese

Watch your prices on items such as cheese. In my area, I can buy a 16 oz. block of cheese far cheaper than I can buy an 8 oz. package of the same cheese grated. I take it home and grate it myself and save the difference.

You can also freeze cheese to be grated, and it grates easier. This saves me around $12 a month in cheese alone.

I do this too and to me it is much more tasty than the packaged grated cheese.

I also do the same. Also I buy the 5 lb sleeve of cheese/pre-sliced. I love the cheese made by Fields. It is soft and creamy tasting. Much better than the Kraft's brand. I love it and it lasts me for about a month. If I bought the pre-wrapped cheese I would spend lots more.

I store it in a clear plastic container in the fridge with a paper towel folded in the bottom of the container. It is the same as is used in restaurants and each slice peels of easily.

I've never found chunk cheese to be cheaper than grated in my area, at least.
