A Cheesy Title

Yesterday I made a quick trip to the grocery store and while there, I waltzed by the deli aisle to check for markdowns. Sometimes I find cheese marked down to $2 a pound because it's close to its pull date. I found 5 2-lb packages of Cache Valley Medium cheddar for $1.99 each. That's a dollar a pound, people! I don't know if I've ever bought cheese that inexpensively. It's pull date was today, but the packages were still nice and tight, so the medium cheddar will probably be sharp cheddar by the time the last of it is eaten, but sharp cheddar costs more, so my savings will just increase!

I always forget to check the markdown spot, maybe I'll write it on my list :)

Cool! We rarely find marked down cheese anymore.

You can always shred and freeze it for later, too.

Sweet! I haven't found any good markdowns lately so I'll live vicariously through you.
