Have you ever tried Freezer Cooking? It is also known as Once a Month Cooking (OAMC), Freezer Meals and Freezer Meal Planning, though you will rarely hear me call it anything but freezer cooking. It is one of the best ways you can save money on a must have expense – food!
I have been freezer cooking for about ten years at this point, though at the start I didn’t do as many meals at one time. I’m also not going to pretend that I stand in my kitchen for hours every few weeks doing nothing but cooking. I miss weeks. I take short cuts. I run out of meals in my freezer. I’m human.
However, it is one thing I can say with clarity and experience, has saved us boatloads of cash in the past few years. At first I didn’t see how it was helping as much, but then I realized that one of the reasons that Freezer Cooking works and allows us to save money, is because we are actually meal planning. Meal planning is one of the number one ways to save money in the kitchen. So tie this together with Freezer Cooking and you have a sure fire way to stretch your dollars to their fullest.
