    Here in Florida there are coupons for $1 off any 1 pound of cheese, shredded or brick. The coupons are available quite often so I use them whenever I can.

    I, too, use the vacuum sealer/foodsaver to freeze shredded cheese. I pre-freeze the cheese in the original bag. When it is thoroughly frozen, I portion out the cheese into the foodsaver bags and freeze. This preserves the shred.

    We purchase a whole horn of Colby Jack cheese at the Amish store for $30.00 we slice it into 3 inch chunks.Then vacuum seal part of them in the whole chunk and some we shred then vacuum seal them. For the Mexican cheese we add our own spice after it is shredded then put it in the vacuum bags. We split the horn with our daughter & her husband & kids. And it lasts us months!
    I like to add other cheeses to it too to make several different blends. it come out to about $.75 cents a bag!

    I use my foodsaver on 1/2 of the bag and use a freezer ziplock bag for the other half and freeze both. I use the cheese in the ziplock bag 1st witch can be rezipped. When it is empty I put the other half in the ziplock bag and continue to use. This cuts down on the plastic and is more convenient to use at cooking time.

    Am I correct that both Sam's and Costco are membership stores? We do not have either one within 75 miles of our town.

    Another question, what brand of vacuum food saver would you recommend?
