Frugal Tips: Freezer Cooking or Bulk Cooking


A great way to save money is NOT to eat out or order in when you are too tired or don’t have a lot of time to cook. Freezer Cooking or Bulk Cooking is a great way to have wholesome meals on hand at any time!

Plus you can use items you are able to stock up on for cheap {with coupons and sales} but don’t want to eat 5 days a week.

Rebekah gives you 10 Freezer Cooking Tips to help you get started with freezer cooking! Plus she has some post about her experience with Freezer Cooking in the past.

Anyone do Freezer Cooking? I am definitely going to start, even though I have been saying that 😉 I am!  It sounds like such a great way to save myself some time each night!

  1. I do freezer cooking and I love it! I bought a book called “Don;t panic – Dinners in the freezer”. It has lots of tips and recipes and facts. I spend on day a month making meals to stock the freezer. It makes my life sooo much easier!

  2. Heather H says:

    I have never tried this, I always thought my food wouldn’t taste as good as it does when you first make it and eat it right away. I think I am going to try a couple things to see how they turn out!

  3. Heather, there are certainly some foods that work better as freezer meals than others, but even PARTS of meals are a big help to have on hand in the freezer. Maybe start with marinated chicken, browned hamburger, and taco meat.

  4. I try to do this for super busy nights with the kids. Start on rainy days or sunny ones. That helps!

    Thanks Rebekah, I will give it a try!

    Thanks Stacey I am goin to go buy that book today!

  7. I freezer cook all the time! Last time I stocked the freezer, it cost me $300 for all the supplies. However, it gave me 6 weeks of meals!!! I typically spend alot more than that on groceries, let alone eating out, because I’m tired after work to cook :( Google “OAMC” (once a month cooking) and it gives you all sorts of freezer recipes. Check the reviews and start cooking! I go to my local dollar store and buy those small (there’s only 2 of us)silver disposable pans in assorted shapes and sizes with the little cardboard lid. I place the food in there, flash freeze it all, put the lid on, place it in a foodsaver bag and run it thru the foodsaver with a label on it. There hasn’t been anything that didn’t taste super yummy! If you need a jump start, Janel…holler and we’ll get together….you know how I LOVE to cook!!!
