Have you ever made your way out of a big box store, only to realize you got carried away and purchased items you aren’t sure you will be able to use before they expire? Being a savvy, economical New York shopper, you know how to keep costs down and nutrition up for your family, but a bargain isn’t a bargain unless you can actually use all of the groceries you’re buying. A smart solution is to freeze and store those great deals you nabbed in a stand-alone freezer, like the Frigidaire Convertible Freezer/Refrigerator for just $869. Frigidaire freezers provide flexible storage options with their accessible design, and are low maintenance with frost free automatic defrost. This model can even convert from a freezer to a second refrigerator within 24 hours, with just the flip of a switch. With one of these Frigidaire freezers, you can buy in bulk, save money and have family favorites at your fingertips.
The most important meal of the day—Who doesn’t love a good bagel or English muffin with breakfast? Stores like CostCo and Sam’s Club offer up substantial savings on large, 36 or 18-count bags of these yummy breakfast go-to’s, but unless you’re expecting an army for brunch, you’ll wind up throwing away moldy-green bagels in no time, especially during humid weather. Eggs, another breakfast staple, can be purchased in bulk at most big box stores for about a third of the price you would shell out if you were only to buy a dozen at a time. If you’re looking to save shopping time, money and hassle in the morning while you’re getting your family up and ready, consider this solution. Scramble up a few dozen eggs ahead of time and make breakfast sandwiches you can freeze individually. Add toppings like salsa, cheese, ham or anything else you know your family loves to each individual sandwich. If it’s hard to get everyone in the family their breakfast in a timely manner because they’re constantly rooting around for different sandwich toppings, you can solve that problem by labeling the prepared meal with their names. Warm them up in the microwave in the a.m. or thaw overnight in the fridge. Egg sandwiches can last around three months when frozen and the low-maintenance Frigidaire Convertible Freezer/Refrigerator auto-defrosts in just 24 hours, so you never have to worry about freezer-burn, even on bread and bakery goods.
Health on a budget—Because they’re typically flash-frozen and picked at the height of freshness, frozen fruits and vegetables often exceed their fresh counterparts in both nutrition and taste. You can save tons of cash while making sure your family gets nutritious, healthy meals by buying in bulk. Six pounds of frozen strawberries at big box stores cost about the same as two pints of fresh strawberries at the green grocer. Frozen fruits are great for kid-friendly, healthy smoothies, but also come in handy when you want to add fiber and sweetness to the kids’ morning oatmeal or cereal without added white sugar. Frozen vegetables are another great staple to keep on hand as healthy side dishes or to throw into stir-frys and quiches. Sneak broccoli into the kids’ favorite mac and cheese dish, toss a handful of peas into soup, or add carrots to the family’s go-to roast - the options are endless. Frozen veggies save you prep time as well, a huge plus for working moms who are racing to beat the clock at dinnertime.
The Frigidaire Convertible Freezer/Refrigerator makes it easy to keep track of all of your groceries, with adjustable, easy to reposition door bins. With added storage space and improved organization, busy families can find their frozen foods in a snap.
Life’s a party! —That may be true, but if you’re the one doing the cooking, you know that your food choices can make or break the party, let alone the bank. A stand-alone freezer gives you the option of buying everyone’s favorite treats in bulk, so you always have great items on hand for when the in-laws drop-in unexpectedly, your little ones invite classmates over for dinner (without letting you know until they walk through the door), holiday celebrations and everyday dinners for the most important people in your life – your family. Great ready-cooked items like mini-meatballs, stuffed mushrooms, petite hors d’oeuvres, and jalapeno poppers can be bought in bulk and kept frozen for months, just waiting to tantalize your taste buds, on a budget.
