Portion Control

Buy meat in bulk... divide ground beef, chicken, etc... Freeze in individual portions in Ziplock baggies... when you want to make a dish, you just grab a bag... defrosts quick... also cheaper than buying smaller packages.

Invest in a FoodSaver

I have used this for 10 years and saved hundreds and hundreds of dollars. I can buy in bulk,\ and freeze individual portions. I can cook ahead, and freeze future servings. I use the bags, and also Ball jars. This appliance has paid for itself many times over! It keeps your food fresh so much longer
