Sure hope the price of butter comes down for Christmas baking!

$5.69 a pound for Land O' Lakes and Challenge butter currently!! Out of sight.

Butter is usually going on sale this time of year for under $3/pound.

How is the price where you are?

2. $6/lb for LOL atm when not on sale

We picked up 10 lbs on sale for $4/lb though. (Butter can be frozen.)

I'd just about swear, though, that we got it for $3/lb or less last year.

4. I buy butter only once a year. For Christmas baking.

So, I never really notice how much it goes up or down.

I suppose you could portion out smaller amounts to everyone and blame it on the republicans!

5. Last year I used more than 20 pounds of butter for Christmas baking.

Twelve pounds of cookies were picked up by the college boy going home on the train -- I bake for that part of the family every year and particularly now when there are twin toddlers.

I'm channeling my Aunt Dorothy who set the pace with her baking. A whole pantry with shelves of Christmas tins full of cookies.

6. See if any of the restaurant supply places will sell bulk butter to you.

I used to be able to buy 5kg bars of chocolate from a restaurant supply store here (until they moved or went out of business; only knew I couldn't find them ever again.) Some of them don't care if you're an individual or a business

13. no aldis near me

I haven't checked Trader Joe's, which I think is owned by the same company. Worth a try.

12. I got two pounds for $5.00 the day before Thanksgiving.

 

Bought two pounds, and I'll have to pay attention to additional sales.
