Women's Day Kitchen Confidential

I previously read Kitchen Confidential out of Woman's Day magazine and found the freezing part of the article particularly interesting and felt silly that I hadn't thought about writing about it before, while reading Macomb Money Savers Blog it occurred to me maybe I should share with others lol.

Woman's Day Article: Kitchen Confidential

Top money-saving tips at the grocery store, in the kitchen and in the pantry
From the April 1, 2009 issue of Woman's Day Magazine
Kitchen Confidential

This chart was omitted from the online article, but I wanted to share from the print edition...

Bulk up on these items when they're on sale and freeze them for future use.

  • Butter
  • Frozen veggies
  • Bread
  • Nuts & seeds
  • Whole-wheat Flour
  • Whole grains (brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa)
  • Wheat germ
  • Coffee
  • Lower-fat milk (remove 1 cup before freezing; the package will expand)

Macomb Money Saver would add to that list:

  • Cheese, block and shredded
  • Meats
  • Bananas (peel and bag for baking)
  • Zucchini, shredded (for baking)
  • Berries (pick in summer, wash & flash-freeze on baking sheets, then package)
  • Bagels and buns (double-wrap by adding a freezer bag or foil)

Did she miss anything? What do you stockpile in your freezer?

I would simply like to say THANK GOD FOR FREEZERS!!!!
