When I buy meat, I divide it up and freeze it. Before I put it in the freezer I write on a piece of freezer tape how much the meat weighs, and stick it on the package. Then, when I get it out of the freezer I know how much meat I am working with - it makes it easy to enter the right amount in my SPoints.
freezing food helps us to eat a little lessand I use less space in the freezer.Having an extra freezer helps to do this.
I cook up a large batch of vege's usually rice and put it in a large freezer bag.I then flatten the bag so the vege's(rice) is a thin layer,that way I can break off just the right amount that I need and it takes up less room in the freezer.
If you eat a lot meat, there is a good way to save money on it. Buy an entire pig or cow. It does cost an extreme amount of money to buy, but it lasts about a year and in the end you actually save a large amount of money because you don't need to buy meat for that entire year.
Just know you need a large freezer!
