I, like a lot of people, have lots of food leftovers, usually they go to waste. I have noted a few ideas I will share that I have found useful!

Never thought to freeze 1/2 loaf of bread...brillant! Thanks
I freeze bread all the time, but never thought to freeze butter. Thanks!
Wonderful tips! I suddenly find myself cooking for one, and I make so many bad choices for groceries I'm buying. Thanks so much for these ideas. Is there a single person website? I appreciate all the budget tips!
Thanks everyone! Also, since I am a Pizza fan, I will also share this tip, if you didn't already know, you can reheat a slice or 2 of pizza in a skillet on top of the stove quickly! Tastes Delicious! Reheating in the oven is hardly worth it for 1-2 slices & the microwave makes for gooey crust! Always check the dates on canned & boxed goods for long shelf life!
So many of your ideas I use and totally agree! I too am more often than not cooking for one, or having leftovers on the nights my husband is home. Freschetta pizzas are fantastic and cooks up even better than delivery pizza.
And Lock 'n Lock storage has saved me tons of money since I started using them. I've had my brown sugar in it for 6 months now and it's still like new. Same with white sugar, flour, chips, coffee, tea, stuffing mix, cereals, bread crumbs. Cat food too. I'd put the dog food in them but they don't have one big enough.
I use your bread tip too. My husband is only home 1-3 days at a time, then gone for 3 weeks. He likes breads that I don't particularly care for so I freeze what's left of his loaf.
I also buy extra butter and other things and freeze till needed. Not only do I not run out but it's cheaper to buy it in bulk.
Glad to see someone else thinks similar to me in the kitchen!
Love these food tips. Thanks for sharing.
I posted already but....
Go to your local store that has spices in bulk.
You never will need a who bottle of xyz in 2-3 weeks, so why buy that much? Our son walked into Winco got 8 kinds of spices and walked out paying about .75 cents.
I noticed you said you freeze peppers. I have tried slicing peppers and onions and freezing in a small plastic bag but when I go to use them, they are mushy. What am I doing wrong?
