Many of you will probably be joining Money Saving Mom and Life as Mom for freezer cooking this week. For the first time in several months I won’t be freezer cooking with them because of our new arrival. We also still have a fully stocked freezer from the last two months (thankfully!).

However, I thought I would share a tip today that has helped me maximize my freezer space for bulk cooking. I have found that the best way to utilize my freezer space when making meals to freeze for later consumption is to fill the ingredients in a freezer bag, suck the air out with a straw, seal it and lay it flat so it can be stacked. However, my bags never ended up completely flat when they froze.

Then, I found a tip to lay the freezer bag on a cookie sheet and put that in the freezer. The bags freeze perfectly flat every time! When they are frozen solid, you can stack them up together to maximize freezer space.

I shared this at Works for Me Wednesday.
