Good economy or bad, saving money is important to any Colorado family. Whether your family is large, small or somewhere in between, you'd be surprised to learn how many ways there are to save time and money when it comes to dinnertime meals and the grocery store budget. Many Denver families have learned that shopping in bulk at warehouse stores like Costco and Sam's Club means less trips to the grocery store with the added bonus of fewer trips to the gas pump, which equates to more money in your wallet. Additionally, health and money conscious shoppers are turning to quality meat and farmers markets and going directly to the source to purchase their fish, poultry and produce. However, when you don’t have the storage space, bulk purchases put the pressures on families to use them before groceries go bad. Additionally, finding the room to store all of those extra packages of frozen veggies or that family size jar of mayo can be a challenge. So what's a savvy shopper to do?
Investing in a stand-alone freezer can actually save your family more time and money than you ever thought possible, and it's more affordable than you may think. The Frigidaire Convertible Freezer/Refrigerator can be found for just $869 and provides flexible storage options with its accessible design. Frigidaire stand-alone freezers are also low maintenance with a frost free automatic defrost, and are built here in the USA. They're equipped with nice, bright lighting that will make it easy to see your freezer's contents, three full-width glass shelves, a clear dairy door, and adjustable bins to please even the most particular shoppers.
Having a stand-alone freezer means that you can keep items like milk, deli meats, and other frequently used stapes in your kitchen refrigerator while storing bulkier items like meats, large bags of frozen fruits and veggies and loaves of bread in your stand-alone freezer. This way, your bulk purchases can remain frozen without taking up precious space in your primary refrigerator/freezer. Wrap meats in quality freezer paper and seal with freezer tape to be stored on the lower shelves, and store fruits and veggies up top. Freezer storage bags and vacuum sealer machines can work wonders in sealing in the flavor and freshness. Be sure to label and date foods you put in the freezer so that you know how long they've been in there and when it's time to thaw them out.

The Frigidaire Frost Free 17 Cu. Ft. Convertible Freezer/Refrigerator model can also convert into a second refrigerator in 24 hours. So if you decide to cook all your meals for the week on a Sunday, it’s a simple way to keep them fresh and ready-to-eat quickly. You can even double your recipes so that you'll have leftovers to freeze and re-heat later in the week or month for dinner at your fingertips.
Today’s freezers aren’t the old fashioned bulky boxes in the garage that people picture digging through to find what they are looking for. These freezers are equipped with nice bright lighting that will make it easy to see its contents, three full-width glass shelves, a clear dairy door, and adjustable bins to please even the most OCD of shoppers.
