Shredded cheese is normally cheaper than block cheese now, because they can use bits of odd sizes to send through the shredder.
When using the store's unit pricing, make sure they are comparing the same units. Many times I've seen similar items having the unit prices in pounds, ounces, and by the package.
Some items are still cheaper to buy pre-made than to make it yourself, but the nutrition normally plumets on those items (such as bread). It cost about $1.25 a loaf to make a healthy loaf, or I can buy a sugary/hydrogenated/who-knows-what loaf for only 89 cents.
