      Not A Stupid Question ( I asked the same when I started )

      I use wax paper or freezer paper lined on cookie sheet – foil
      sometimes will stick to food…..
      place in freezer to firm up then pull out to bag/label for more perm
      freezer stay (flash freeze will help handle the food easier)
      I do oanightc (same as once a month or oaweekc ) except can not
      multi task (do it all in one day) my brain just does not function
      that way
      when i make a meal – just double up – freeze 1/2 for a supper the
      next time( there is only 2 of us and sometimes I can get 4 meals out
      of a double recipe )
      Since doing this – No more science projects from fridge thrown into
      the garbage After spring cleaning fridge/pantry one time – seeing
      all the food wasted from freezer burn or stale I swore off bulk
      buying because if you end up throwing it out – you do not save!!

      I
      saved for a year for a foodsavor (a dollar here & there) found a
      great one at Target – model #1200 for $139. worth every penny!!

      No
      more throw always except scraps from our plates ….
      So in reality It has paid for it self over & over
      At first did not know if I would actually save So on paper tallied
      up things thrown – and only 1 item in 2 months and it was celery
      thought I cut up to be frozen and forgot
      My freezer is full ( runs more efficient then 1/2 empty freezer) We
      can go many nights w/o cooking and have a healthier meals in minutes
      It does require some planning (freezer charts – so you don’t forget
      what you have in there, etc ) There are many useful web sites (( One
      is here at Budgets home ” fill the freezer “)) on how to get started
      and useful tips / recipes just do a search on “oamc”
      hope this helps somebody

      adieu, adios, arrivederci, auf wiedersehen, au revoir, bye-bye,
      cheerio, goodbye,
      good day, sayonara, so long – hzl b
