I don't know about your family, but in mine, cheese disappears quickly. I'll buy cheese on sale or for a good price and then, when I need it for a recipe, it's gone. While it was used for lunch or breakfast, (beanadillas, omelettes, grilled cheese, etc.), it is still non-existent when I need it.
At least that's how it used to be.
Now when I arrive home I split the cheese and freeze some portions. I utilize the frozen cheese for my recipes. If the cheese is grated simply squeeze the bag a little to break apart. If it is a block of cheese it is easy to grate while frozen. I let it thaw if it is in the middle of something, but if it is on top I leave it frozen. This prevents it from over browning.
Works for me.
What works for you?

That is an amazingly brilliant idea. We have the same problem in our house, cheese disappears. I'll have to try that...
