Frozen Assets

Getting Started

The Modern Dilemma

We could all use a few more minutes in our day, couldn’t we? Anyone out there have enough time for everything they want to accomplish? No? I didn’t think so. I’ve been using bulk cooking techniques for many years.

The concept of cooking a month’s worth of meals ahead of time to store in the freezer revolutionized the way I feed my family. I adapted the techniques using my own inexpensive recipes — and we’ve been saving time, money and sanity(!) ever since.

No matter who you are, how big your family or what your lifestyle, I believe cooking ahead for the freezer has something to offer everyone.

The Benefits

I’ve been asked, “Which do you have more of: Time or money?” Hmmmm … Tough question. I don’t have much of either one!

I originally started using these techniques because of their time-saving benefits, but I was quickly surprised to discover I was saving substantially on our regular food bills as well.

Before using these methods I was spending about $700 per month on groceries and other food-related expenses (including drive-thru restaurants, paper products, pizza delivery) for a family of five.

By simply making the change to cooking ahead and buying in bulk, I was able to reduce our food/grocery bills to less than $300. That’s a $400+ savings every month! Over time that adds up to a considerable amount of money. By cutting back our grocery bill by $400 each month, over the course of five years, it added up to a whopping $24,000 savings on just groceries!

People from all walks of life are reaping the benefits of this simple, common sense approach to cooking and meal planning: single people, married, stay-at-home parents, part-time workers, full-time working parents, working couples with no children, business owners, big happy families and small happy families. And they’re living all over the world — throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia and elsewhere.
