I have found that keeping the freezer full of small freezer bags and containers of meats, vegetables bought in large size bags as well as freezing left-overs helps me take advantage of good sales, seasonal fresh foods, and it cuts down on the amount of food previously tossed out because he won't eat left-overs, vegetables, or soups. I bought a conversion blender and now am able to make my own creamy soups using not only the normal parts of vegetables but a lot of the time I can use the leafy parts also by blending. If you use fat-free condenced milk when making soups it not only cuts the fat and calories, but saves on the pocket book. Low sodium boullion is much better than regular and doesn't cost but a few cents more. The more foods you can make yourself, the more you can save. And I enjoy the challenge as well as the savings.
