Freezing Small Quantities of Food

When you are freezing small quantities, such as that handful of raspberries or a small amount of leftover pasta sauce, it is not worthwhile to use up freezer space with a larger plastic container that is only a quarter full. Likewise, it can seem almost wasteful to use a an expensive ziploc freezer bag to store it in.

One quick money-saving tip is to place the small items in regular ziploc bags - the smaller snack bags work great at about half of the size of a sandwich bag - and then place those smaller bags into a larger freezer ziploc and place in the freezer. You aren't wasting money on freezer bags for such small quantities, and by also keeping them in a larger bag, you won't be as likely to lose them to the bottom of the freezer where they can slip through the larger and bulkier items.

It will also provide an easier means of saving that handful of raspberries for a morning smoothie later or that single serving of pasta sauce or side dish.
