Once a week, I spend an afternoon pre-prepping my vegetables. Instead of baggies, I always use Tupperware or rubbermade style containers. It's just so much easier to stack flat-bottomed containers than baggies! I make sure whatever I use has clear or translucent sides so I can see what's in the fridge at a glance. It cuts down on waste, too. Nothing gets "lost" in a recycled, opaque cottage-cheese container!

I recently went to Sam's Club and bought frozen vegetables; chicken; cereals and breads in bulk of course. I vacuum sealed my breads in 2 or 3 bagels; 2 or 3 sandwich thins; frozen broccoli in 1 cup or 2 cup portions; precooked baby shrimp in 1 cup packages; and chicken pieces 4 per pack.
Saves money , saves time and will last longer if vacuum sealed. 128
Every weekend I buy a large family pack of skinless/boneless chicken breasts, split them in halves and bake or grill the whole lot. Over the week I add it to soups, stews, or sprinkle seasonings to make it a main dish. It saves me SO much time on weekdays and I always have food in a pinch.
Save time, save money buying in bulk, and there's always something to grab & prepare if you're starving.
