This Must Have Kitchenware Is a Money-Saving Life Hack for Cheese
Listen up if you're as big of a fan of cheese as I am.
There are numerous reasons why I'm marrying my better half and this is just one. You see, she's all about saving money and she's exceptionally good at it (not that I'm complaining). She recently taught me a life hack that had me drooling and I was permitted to share it with you.
Do you find yourself spending way too much money on shredded cheese? In our house, we go through at least a bag or two per week and it's just the two of us. Inflation has the cost of dairy products skyrocketing these days, but instead of paying almost $20 a week on shredded cheese, we now only pay $6.
Like most business models in life, you'll have to spend money to save money with this life hack, and as confusing as it sounds, it's worth it in the end.
First, you'll need a KitchenAid mixer with a slicer/shredder attachment that will run you between $400 to $500 depending on where you buy it from. Again, it's going to save you "cheddar" in the long run.
Next, you'll need to pick out your preferred flavor of the cheese in block form. In our household, we're big fans of sharp cheddar. It complements our salads and homemade pizzas with distinguished flavor. Whichever kind of cheese you choose, just be aware that you'll have an abundance. Walmart sells these giant 2-pound blocks for around $6 or $7.
All you have to do from here is attach the cheese shredder, feed the cheese block into the mixer, and catch it in plastic baggies. You'll find the cheese is much fresher and will stick together, but that just means there are not as many preservatives as pre-bagged shredded cheese. You'll taste the difference, too.
Just don't be "that person" and feed the cheese straight into your gullet as I did.
I'm ashamed but satisfied.
