Hi, I’m Jeanette Pavini, Savings Expert for Coupons.com, here with your Money Minute. Today, spend a little time with us and we’ll show you how freezing food can save big money.
You can save hundreds of dollars a year when you buy food in bulk and freeze it properly.
It may be worth it to invest in a vacuum sealer. It will keep your food fresh up to 5 times longer than ordinary freezing methods. Beef, poultry and even vegetables can last two to three years in the freezer when vacuum sealed.
Buy the family size portion of items like ground beef. You will save around fifty cents to a dollar per pound. You can divide it up into three meals and freeze for later.
You may also want to get into the habit of doubling any recipe that will freeze well like baked pasta, enchiladas, or chicken soup. Not only will you save money buying all of the ingredients at once, but you’ll save time in the long run!
A stocked freezer can even save on your energy bills. An almost empty freezer has to work harder to stay cold.
That’s your Money Minute, see you next time!
