    Thanks Faye and El Bound. Wish I could find some for $1.29. F. L. was 2/5 and their brand was $2.00 each. I need 4 for the cheese cake. Oh the the butter was like $4.35. In only need about 3 tablespoons. Boy this is going to be an expensive cake. I am checking Lowe's tommorrow and maybe WalMart. Got to get a better price. At least I got my sour cream free from HT.

    EI bound - Thanks for sharing! :-) That is actually a decent price for 8 oz of brick cream cheese. My buy price is $1 or less, but in a pinch, $1.29 is a reasonable. Aldi often has a good everyday price on many staple items. I can't wait for the one in Garner to open!

    Not a great price, but last week I got cream cheese at Aldi's for 1.29 for 8 oz-- better than the other stores.

    Nanee Lion, there were no good cream cheese deals in the grocery ads this week or the CVS and Walgreens ads starting Sunday. I looked on the HT and LF express lanes and did not see any there either. There is a .50/1 Philly cream cheese coupon on right now. Sorry I don't see any good deals for the birthday cheesecake. Happy birthday to him, though!

    And you can freeze cream cheese, but it will be a different consistency when it thaws. I have read it is ok when baked with after thawing though. I do not freeze it.

    Faye, I use ebates anytime I shop online too. It is just not talked about that much which is surprising.

    Nanee, I freeze cream cheese all the time. If I know I'll need it the next day, the night before I'll take it out & place it in the fridge.

    Can you freeze cream cheese? I just realized my cream cheese has expired and need to make a cheese cake for my grandson's birthday. Any sales out there? Thanks.
