Crystal at Money Saving Mom held a 4 week challenge last May to help people stock up their freezers and save money. This is an awesome idea that I wish I would have stumbled on over my winter break (as if I didn’t have enough to do with the kitchen remodel).
So many people tell me that they fall off their diets because they get hungry and there is nothing in the house to eat. They usually end up going out – and when they finally get their food they are ravenously hungry, because almost an hour has passed from the moment they looked for something to eat at home, drove to the restaurant, waited to be seated, ordered, and received their food. Having healthy food and meals on hand in the freeze is a great way to prevent those diet pitfalls.
If you aren’t on a diet this is still good for you! It will help you keep a modest food budget and go about your week stress-free (well, at least stress-free about what will be for dinner).
Many people have food prep parties where they invite their girlfriends over and make meals together. This helps keep everyone on track and gives you an excuse to drink wine and hangout with your girlfriends.
