Eat cheese and save $$$!
What is sweet is cheese as a good source of protein, and calcium for teeth and bones, especially in growing children and active seniors. And what is loveable is eating cheese and saving a lot of money at the same time.
How? Buy cheese in slabs of 500 grams!
Surprisingly, some cheese with brand names cost a lot less than cheese with non-brand names. The reason is that the brand-name companies want to encourage the consumers to buy all the stock of cheese that will expire in a few months. So these companies lower their prices from the regular price of about $7-$8 to about $4-$5. We usually buy 3 slabs to last us for about 3-4 weeks when we eat cheese every day.
You may not like the idea of having such a big piece of cheese (500 grams) sitting in the refrigerator exposed and eventually dried up after it’s packaging is cut opened. However, here are the steps to a simple solution:
- Buy a circular, marble cheese serving board set that includes a glass dome cover; we bought our set on sale just a few days before Christmas of last year.
- After opening the package, slice the cheese slab into 1/2 inch wide rectangular pieces.
- Place all the pieces onto the marble serving board.
- Cover the cheese pieces with the glass dome which helps keep the cheese from drying up, and store on the top shelf in the refrigerator.
There you have it: a loveable way of eating cheese and saving money at the same time!
