When you cook for two, it can be hard to find products in sizes that don’t waste money or food. But if you know what to look for, you can find products that are perfect for pairs. Here’s a list of helpful shopping strategies and items that work when you cook for two.

In the Dairy Section

Butter stores safely in your freezer for up to 6 months.

Many markets have precut cheeses in smaller portions in the specialty cheese section. Or try a specialty cheese shop if there's one in your area. Use a vacuum sealer to store larger portions of cheese.

Buy smaller servings of dairy products—pints of milk, 6- and 8-ounce containers of yogurt, 4-ounce containers of cottage cheese and 3-ounce blocks of cream cheese.
