YOU just looked at the date and are panicking that your item is about to expire – but it turns out that you might be able to freeze it and preserve it.
Freezing products is often a method used by consumers to prolong the shelf life of food to avoid disposing it.2The money-savings expert reveals various items that she has stored in her freezer 2This includes jarred items including baked beans
But odds are you may not be taking full advantage of your freezer.
It turns out that various products that most aren’t aware of can be stored in the freezer, according to money-saving expert and food pro who goes by Cheapskate Cook on YouTube, or Stephani Jenkins.
And also keep in mind that avoiding waste will help you save money.
Stephani in a recent video went through her freezer and revealed a list of little-known food items that can be stored inside it.READ MORE ON GROCERYAISLE HAVE THAT I'm a savings mom - my five tricks can save you $100s on your grocery bill FOOD BUDGETING I cut our family's grocery bill by 60% each month by following these 12 tips 1. Avocado
In Stephani's freezer, she has a couple of Avocado products inside.
One was a chopped-up Avocado in a container that was about to go bad.
“I can throw it into smoothies or even into guacamole if I let it thaw,” Stephani said.
The other is an organic Avocado Mash that came in a small package from her local grocery store.Most read in MoneyNICE HAULDI I’m a first-time Aldi shopper - I picked up a week’s shopping for $80DUPED I'm a fashion pro - simple Amazon trick to help find designer dupes for cheaperPAYDAY TIME Exact dates Social Security, SSI and SSDI are paid each month in 2022POT OF CASH Brand new direct payment worth $250 per child becomes 18th relief program in US
That thaws perfectly fine as well, according to Stephanie.2. Cinnamon sugar
Typically, granulated sugar has a long shelf life – which is said to be up to two years in the cabinet.
However, Stephani made cinnamon sugar for donuts and noted that it was “rolled around in dough and leftover.”
She added, “I just stuck it in the freezer so I can use it later on.”3. Almonds
Almonds could expire after a year or two.
“Nuts go bad, so if you are not eating them as quickly as you think you should throw them in the freezer and they will last a much longer time,” Stephani said.4. Baked beans
Even jarred items such as baked beans can go even in the freezer.
While she likes freezing items in jars, Stephani cautioned to “keep in mind that liquid expands.”
So she recommends filling them up three-quarters or five-sixths of the way to the jar as opposed to the very top.5. Thin mints
Some items actually taste better frozen – rather than just serving the purpose of prolonging the shelf life.
If you aren’t doing these with desserts like thin mints, you are “missing out,” according to Stephani.6. Fresh mozzarella cheese
Cheese fans who are tired of their products forming green spots after failing to consumer quick enough are in some luck as well.
Stephani buys the Kirkland fresh mozzarella brand from Costco.
“I usually can’t eat that much all at once,” she said.
“It keeps really well in the freezer.”7. Diced tomatoes
Originally, Stephani bought sliced tomatoes in a “massive jar” from Costco.
She didn’t have time to finish them before the expiration date so she split them into two separate bags in the freezer.
Stephani plans on using the frozen product in the future for spaghetti sauce or salsa.8. Milk
Depending on the brand, milk may not even last a week in the fridge.
But it is said that you can store milk in the freezer and the shelf life can increase for a few extra months.
Stephani has buttermilk in her freezer that she plans on making pancakes with.
“If you buy milk or buttermilk that you’re not going to be able to use in time, just throw it in the freezer and then you can use it for a baked thing," she said.9. Lunch meat
Lunch meat only last three-to-five days in the fridge, according to the Department of Agriculture.
But Stephani said that those items freeze “really well.”10. Peppers
In the fridge, peppers are said to last up to two weeks.
From Trader Joe’s, Stephani buys sliced red, green and yellow in a bag and then tosses them in the freezer.
“I love having these to saute because I don’t buy a lot of fresh bell peppers.”
