What's in Your Freezer?

The wife and I are trying a new thing. We're creating a weekly menu before we go food shopping. Friends tell us they save a ton of money operating this way as it greatly reduces the number of impulse purchases. I don't like cooking this way, but I need to save money. Usually meal planning involves a look in the freezer to see what inspires me - and if nothing does, a trip to the market.

First step is to inventory what food you already have. So here's what's in our freezer.

Wow. Looks like we're set for a while. So, tell me, what's in your freezer?

My wife and I have been doing this for years http://menu.vldyson.com

We also have two big freezers and buy store loss leaders when possible and I make a couple of tips a year to a good butcher for pork.

I think this is an excellent strategy and wish we could do it, but with 2 stand alone and one side-by-side freezer, it would take all day just to inventory it - I have way too much frozen food.

I would be in the same boat as BigDude. I buy all my meat in bulk from local farms so I always have beef and pork. Creating a weekly menu is something I do for our family every week. It definitely saves money, and keeps me going with cooking creativity.

I'm absolutely amazed by the sheer amount of food in your freezer! If I had a big freezer I might think about stocking up like that. But then I'd end up with a lot of my cash tied up in frozen goods! It'a something of a dilemma...
The thing with a stocked freezer like yours is that when disaster hits-you won't be joining the stampede for the stores. That happened here in Toowoomba, Australia, recently. I ended up freezing milk to make it last.
Thanks for an interesting post!

That's some good looking food! I plan to keep my grill crankin' this summer.

I want to work on doing a better brisket. Got any tips?
