Most people don’t really hate cooking — they just hate the pressure and all the work of coming up with something for dinner every night of the week. You can build up a good supply of dinners in your freezer this way. Jenny says: “On the nights you feel like cooking, you can. But when you don’t feel like it, use those ‘frozen assets’ in the freezer. Along with more family time, freezer meals also help you save $200-$300 a month. Freezer meals save you time, money and sanity.”
