- When you buy a loaf of bread, keep half of it for sandwiches and things and place the other half in the freezer to use when you have things like toast, French toast or Texas toast.
- You can also keep loaves of French bread in the freezer. When you need it for garlic bread or Texas toast just slice it and put back. French bread is so much easier to slice when it is frozen.
- If you need fresh peppers or other vegetables and the rest of the pepper usually goes to waste before you need it again, try keeping a bag of stir fry vegetables in your freezer. This way you can pick out what you need for a recipe and not waste the rest.
- There are also many vegetables, like peppers, where the leftovers can be stored in the freezer to use another time.
