One trick I have to save some pennies, and get twice the amount is to buy medium, or large whole olives and use my egg slicer to get SLICED olives.
I have noticed that the price of SLICED olives has risen considerably over the past bit.
A can of whole olives is about $.88 for 16 oz., where a can of sliced olives is %1.19 for a 8 oz can...
It only takes a few moments and Presto: sliced olives for a fraction of the price.. and twice the amount!
That's What Works for Me!!
