Time for another episode of:
In the April issue of Women’s Day (which by the way, is a great lifestyle mag, that I happen to enjoy via a free subscription through an online offer), they had a great little chart of items you can freeze.
If I can freeze these items, I should be stocking up when they are on sale.
I thought you may be interested in finding out about what freezes well too, so you can have a lightbulb moment too, and save some cashola.
So, here is the list of items to freeze, courtesy of Women’s Day.
Frozen veggies (artichoke hearts, peas, cut-leaf spinach, broccoli florets, squash)
Nuts & seeds
Whole grains (brown rice, buckwheat)
Lower-fat milk (remove 1 cup before freezing; the package will expand)
I don’t know about you, but I had no clue that you could freeze bread, butter or milk.
Plus, I did a little more digging (online of course), and found out that you can also freeze cheese. This is fabulous, because cheese is often on sale. Just a few weeks ago, Hy-Vee had packaged shredded cheese on sale for $.99! This is a grrrreat deal! I stocked up on enough cheese for a month… maybe more. I’m not going to lie, we eat a lot of cheese. I’ve saved a bunch of money.
I’m also going to try the milk, because I often see this on sale. This also really makes me want to get a deep freeze, but that may be longer-term. =) (Ryan… can we get a deep freezer?)
What do you think? Would you freeze items to take advantages of sales?
