Here are are few ways freezer cooking can save you money:
It makes you plan ahead.Whether you are doing one big freezer cooking session or just doing some batch cooking, you still have to plan ahead with freezer cooking. When you plan out what you’re cooking you can plan your make ahead items around what you already have or can purchase on sale which will save you money.
You can buy in bulk. Even if the items you need for your freezer cooking aren’t on sale you can still save by buying in bulk. Just pay close attention to pricing. I most often do this with meat, chocolate chips, cheese & butter among other items.
It keeps you out of the drive thru.When you have a meal in the freezer that you can pull out and heat up quickly, you won’t be so tempted to run through a drive thru and pick up dinner on a night you’re too busy or too frazzled to cook up a meal from scratch.
It keeps you from purchasing expensive processed foods. When you’re freezer cooking you’re typically making things from scratch. You can add homemade breakfasts, snacks and dinners to your freezer that you can grab whenever you need them. This keeps you away from overpriced meal kits and boxed snacks and breakfasts at the grocery store.
