For households that regularly cook, extra freezer space can be a must-have appliance. Small freezers in a refrigerator just don’t have enough room for meal prep, bulk purchases, and other storage. Once you’ve invested in an extra freezer, there’s so much you can do to save money! You can:
- Make several meals at once.
Instead of daydreaming of making a month’s worth of meals in a day, you can actually print out and follow a meal prep plan (which are easily available on websites like Pinterest). Do all the grocery shopping and meal prep in one day, and eat for a week or a month!
- Buy in bulk.
Costco, Sam’s Club, and other wholesale suppliers offer great deals, but your small family may not need all that meat or produce at once. Instead of letting it go to waste, you can purchase it on sale and pop it in your freezer until you’re ready to use it.
- Put up items other than food.
If you have any seasonal candles or beeswax ornaments, you can wrap them up and stick them in your freezer. You can also save seeds for your garden from year to year and prevent grains from spoiling.
