You Bought in Bulk...Now What?
Stocking up on large quantities of food is a smart way to save money. Here's how to make sure none of it goes to waste.
Yes, you can coat cheese in wax and then store it in your basement for a very long time. But if you don't have the space for a 10-pound wheel of cheddar, just watch for the more manageable 8-ounce blocks to go on sale. Buy a bunch and shred them; then store the grated cheese in freezer bags and freeze for up to six months (a frozen block of cheese will crumble when thawed). Or buy pre-shredded cheese in bulk and freeze it.
