Save Money on Meat and Cheese Tray
With all the ocasions to take a dish to parties and gatherinings the cost of providing food adds up.
The best bet is to always make your own dish to save money. When you decide to bring a meat and cheese tray the cost can add up to quite a bit.
What I did was go to the local thrift shop and purchased a tray for $1.50. Brought it home and wiped it down with a disenfectent wipe then put it in the dishwasher.
Next I went to my local grocery store and purchased a nice lettuce to put down as a base for color.
Then I picked up four packs of lunch meat and two packs of cheese. The cheese you will need to cut yourself. To go on the side I picked up some whole grain crackers. I put a small dish of ranch dressing in the center of the cracker tray.
All of this cost me less the $35.00. If you bought the meat tray ready made it would cost you $60.00 and up. I did take the time to wash and prepare the lettuce and cut the other topings but it was well worth it.
