Stock up on day-old red and green peppers on sale or celery, onions, or other veggies. Chop them up and freeze them to use later. You can do the same thing with any vegetable you've bought that seem to be "on the turn" to avoid throwing them away. To use later, defrost or throw into a stir-fry for a quick meal.

I do this too except I freeze little bits and dabs of leftovers in an ice cream bucket. You can use anything without dairy. When the bucket is full I put everything in a stock pot, pour a can or two of tomato juice and flavor to taste. It's great when the weather is changing in the fall or winter to spring with a crusty bread or savory biscuits.
