    When my tomatoes get soft, I dice them and put them in a container in the freezer to add to spaghetti sauce, chili or bean soup just as they are. I usually have a med. sized container to give me room should i need it for more tomatoes if they get soft.

    We never finish a loaf of bread before it gets stale and occasionally hot dog and hamburger buns get freezer burn in the freezer. I put the bread on a cookie sheet in my over and turn on the over to 300 degrees for 10-15 minutes, then let it sit in the over until it dries. Once it is dry I pulverize it into bread crumbs in the blender and then keep them in a sealed container in the refrigerator. I haven't had to buy bread crumbs for years!

    My mom and her friends would go to a price club store and purchase an item in bulk and share it. A large package of hot dogs can be shared among 3 friends. Saves money and the portion is just right for one person.

    You can do this with family members too.

    Most items in the grocery store are sold in too large of a quantity for just one person, so oftentimes I will make a large batch of soup or stew and freeze it in portions that are just the right size for my dinner or lunch. (Saves time and money!)

    The freezer is my #1 tool for saving leftovers. I put items in small containers (items like 1/2 can of beans) and I label and date them so I can keep them organized.
