Here’s a favorite money saver trick of mine!  We use a lot of shredded cheese: add it to pasta dishes, make quesadillas, sprinkle in and over omelets, add to burritos, etc.  I used to buy the 2-cup cheese packages at the grocery store when they were on sale- for $1.50 each.

But now, we go to Costco and buy that HUGE bag of shredded cheddar/jack cheese from the dairy case.  At home, we scoop it out using a 2-cup measuring glass and dump it into ziplock baggies.  Put those baggies into a gallon size freezer bag and freeze it that way.  We end up with 17 bags for under $10.00!  I’m saving at least $15 that way!

(OK, it might be cheaper to buy no-name block cheese and shred it myself, but I’m looking for time savers as well!)
