Dh went To Bargain Factory yesterday and came home with some amazing cheeses for only $1-$1.69 each 4-8oz  pack.  He bought baby Brie, aged vintage cheddar, raw sheep's milk blue cheese, herbed goat milk, Reserve herbed Asiago and a couple others that I have never heard of.



Today we got yogurt

1 case 12 pack, 5.3 oz Fage cherry
2 cases 12 pack, 5.3 oz Fage Honey
2 cases 12 pack, 6 oz Stonyfield organic plain
3 cases 24 pack, 4oz Stonyfield organic strawberry, SB/Banana

$1 each case Shocked

But wait there's more...

I also got 8, 32oz Horizons Organic vanilla and plain for $.50 each
Plus 7, 16oz (all they had) of the Horizons organic sour cream for $.50 each



$16 for all that Organic dairy- not a bad day.  Of course the sell by dates range from March 29-April 15th, but we don't care.

Holy wow! That's amazing. That sell by date isn't too far back, imo, either. Are you going to freeze most of it? Awesome deals. Never heard of Bargain Factory. Is that where he got the cheese and you got all the dairy too? Amazing!

Bargain Factory is a freight Salvage store in town :)  We check it out often for great deals and sometimes we find them.  I imagine the yogurt will be gone in 2 weeks or less anyway so no need to freeze it.  Sour cream I may need to freeze some up.

whoa! that is insanely awesome. I bet you could freeze a lot of the yogurts into yogurt-cicles, just stick a stick in the top!

There’s a big difference between Knowledge & Wisdom. Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in fruit salad.

That's incredible, Jenny!!

And you probably know this, but yogurt is usually good for *months* after it's best by date.

Yes! Even my mom, the queen of "hmm...could it possibly be bad? Let's throw it out!" Will eat months-old yogurt. LOL

For me, if it hasn't been opened and it's less than 3 months old, I won't even consider the possibility of throwing it out. Tongue

Yogurt does last forever, but at our house it will be gone in less than 2 weeks.  And the timing for that store is a fator.  I bought up almost all of the yogurt- I left the plain 32 oz containers and the 12 packs of plain.  If I had more room I would have taken all.  As for the cheese, Adam went on Sat and said there was a large amount but when we went back Sun it was nearly all gone with only the strong and unusual types left.  A friend of ours took home a 10lb wheel of something for just $3 Shocked

It's what happens when I say to myself: "yogurt is healthy I *should* eat more of it! I'm gonna buy a big container of it" and then I'm just never motivated to eat it.
 
This particular batch was purchased at a farmer's market from some kind of biodynamic Rudolph Steiner sort of farm or something. I suspect it might have had a lot more going on in there than the typical batch of Dannon.
