Coupons, sales, budgets, trying to save as much money as possible on groceries.
We cut coupons to save money at the grocery store. We shop the sales. We set up grocery budgets and shop with cash envelopes to save money. We bulk buy and stick to generic to save money. We try our hardest to make our hard earned money work the best for us at the grocery store.

Putting these items in the freezer will make them last longer and provide for your family. Freezing items you buy on sale or bulk buy saves you money.

Now I have to say I have learned a few things researching this post and I freeze a lot. I didn’t know you can freeze eggs – yeah you can freeze eggs! You may be amazed at what you can freeze.

So which items were you surprised with now knowing that you can freeze them? Are you going to add them to your grocery list? I was surprised with eggs and honestly it would save so much time and money to freeze scrambled eggs to add to baking or quiche. I also never thought of freezing the cheese end bits to add to sauces and soups. This is a good money saving idea.
With this list my freezer will be full in no time. Think of all the money you can save. Buy the items on sale or in bulk, divide them up and freeze them. We regularly freeze fruits, vegetables, meats and bread products. In my freezer I have a bag labelled soup stock that I add vegetable scraps to for bone broths and soups.
I love having an extra freezer for food storage and the money it saves us. Buying items in bulk or on sale or preparing freezer meals. All of it, divide it up and freeze it – you will save money.
Have an amazing day,
