Raise your hand if you’ve ever marveled at a friend or neighbor who at any given moment has 15 meals in his or her freezer. I’m always mystified by folks who seem to have 30 hours in their day instead of 24 and enough creativity to merely create 15 different meals, let alone prepare them in advance. I only have about 10 that my family will eat if I’m lucky.
However, my freezer is an awesome tool to combat the crunch of a busy day and extreme tiredness when I need to cook. You might not have time to whip up a month’s worth of meals; however, there are plenty of ways to leverage your freezer when it comes to saving time and money when you feed your family. Here are some of my favorite ways to make the most of this useful tool.
