By now you've probably gather that we're big fans of the freezer.. not only can it massively help to reduce food waste in the home, but also save you some hard-earned cash! We've gathered some fantastic tips and tricks to help you make the most of your freezer and conquer food waste like a champ. Read on to find out more!


  1. Smart Portioning: When you have leftovers or extra ingredients, divide them into individual servings before freezing. This way, you can thaw only what you need and avoid wasting food.

  2. Label for Clarity: Prevent freezer mishaps by labeling everything you freeze. Use reusable labels or masking tape to mark the contents and date of freezing. This simple step will save you from any mystery meals.

  3. Batch Soups and Sauces: Make a large batch of your favorite soups and sauces, then freeze them in smaller portions. Whether it's tomato soup or marinara sauce, freezing individual servings will ensure you always have a tasty meal ready to go.

  4. Preserve Berries: Berries spoil quickly, so rinse, dry, and freeze them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Once frozen, transfer them to a freezer bag or container. This way, you can enjoy them whenever you crave a burst of fruity goodness.

  5. Freeze Veggies: Don't let your veggies go to waste in the fridge. Blanch them quickly by boiling for a few minutes, then cool them in an ice bath. Once cooled, drain and freeze them in convenient portions. This way, you'll always have nutritious veggies on hand.

  6. Flavorful Ice Cubes: Turn extra herbs, fruits, or veggies into flavor-packed ice cubes. Chop them finely, place them in a muffin tin, fill with water or broth, and freeze. These cubes can enhance soups, stews, or even infuse water with a refreshing twist.

  7. Bread Storage: Freeze bread to prevent it from going stale. Slice or chop the loaf before freezing, so you can easily defrost individual pieces as needed. Toast them, use them for sandwiches, or transform them into breadcrumbs. No more wasted bread!

  8. Freeze Sauces and Dips: Preserve homemade sauces and dips by freezing them. Portion them into ice cube trays or small containers, then pop them in the freezer. This way, you'll always have a handy condiment ready to elevate your meals.
