Can I fudge on freezer bags?
I'm in the midst of my first ground beef plan. I started out with about 20lbs of ground beef, and I've only got one dish left to go!
So, now that I'm ready to start throwing this stuff in my freezer, I'm trying to find a way to skimp on freezer bags.
Will it be okay if I pack all the items in regular ziplock bags, and then slip them inside freezer bags? It seems like a silly question, but I'd hate to see anything go to waste.
I was hoping that then I could keep the freezer bags on the outside, and reuse them easily.
Also, will rubbermaid style containers help cut down on the smells leaking out? My mom used to have these thick, white plastic containers that she got from the restaurant business. Is something this heavy duty required, or will regular rubbermaid help keep the garlic and onion stinks inside? :-)
Thanks for the help!
