Don’t you know you can save a lot of money and time by buying food in bulk and putting them in a freezer? There are a lot of good food options you can choose from! You just need to learn the proper way of storing and using them to make the most of these frozen goods.



Here are 40 foods that freeze well according to She’s In Her Apron:


Frozen butter. It doesn’t change texture or consistency when frozen.

Milk. It sometimes separates when you freeze it but all you need is to shake it up once it’s thawed.

Sour cream, cottage cheese, and cream cheese. You can put these in the freezer but the consistency will change a little bit when it’s frozen. It will be a little bit water when you unfreeze them, especially with cottage cheese.

Yogurt. The consistency changes a little bit but is still perfect for recipes.

Cheese. When you grab a bag of shredded cheese just put them in the freezer and when it’s time to use, just scrunch up the bag, set it in your fridge and it’s ready to go.

Eggs. Put them in silicone muffin trays but make sure that the mold is on a flat cutting board or cookie sheet so it’s easier to put in the freezer. Once they are frozen pop them out and place them into your freezer bags.

Fruits and vegetables

Avocado. Cut them in half and take off the peel and rub some lemon or lime juice. Place in a food saver bag.

Garlic and onions. Freeze when you buy in a bulk store.

Mashed potatoes. Prepare mashed potatoes with some milk, butter, and salt. Then scoop and place on a baking sheet, put in a freezer for a while, and put in a zipper bag.
