My husband and I are trying to eat less meat.
It’s expensive and it clogs up your arteries. Or so I’ve been told.
Since we are carnivores at heart, it has been hard for me to make the transition to more veggies and less meat.
Matter of fact, cheese pretty much helps most situations.
You have a fight with a friend? Eat some four cheese pizza.
Sick with pneumonia? Eat some mac and cheese.
See how beautiful cheese is?
That’s why saving money on cheese has become essential for my family.
How I save money on cheese
Cheese can be pretty pricey. The best way I have found (so far) to save money on cheese is buying it in bulk and shredding it myself.
Shredded cheese at the grocery store is outrageously priced. Not only that, but did you know that when you dive into a package of that store bought stuff, you aren’t eating only cheese? True. Check the ingredient list.
In order to shred my own cheese, I could spend hours doing it by hand, or take care of it real quick with this guy
I stick blocks of cheese and let him shred it for me.
Then, I freeze containers of cheese for later use. They stay good in the freezer for months.
I also cut off sticks of the cheese to use as a snack for my toddler. Cheese sticks at the store are another ridiculously priced product.
Whatever mood you are in, grab yourself some cheese, it will cheer you up.
