Freezer Sandwiches – Time Saving Tip

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 15, 2011

Jackie shared with the Savings Lifestyle community about her freezer sandwiches and how she gets the whole family involved in making them, through Andrea’s Best Savings Tip contest!

Love the cost savings and the time efficiency of this…and Jackie swears that the sandwiches don’t get soggy and insists that you try it!

We do this at our house as well and they do NOT get soggy! WE love being able to gjust grab a sandwich out of the freezer, add some veggies, a juice, a fruit and a snack!

Will those only work for cold cut sandwiches? Do they have to have some kind of spread (mustard, mayo,etc) on them?

@Kara – from looking into it further…it looks like you would want to leave the condiments off (or it would get soggy) – the original poster would throw packets of mayo/mustard into the lunches. As for pb&j – you would put a thin layer of pb on each side and the jelly in the middle. If you want lettuce/tomato/etc, some suggested making baggies of this and putting them in the fridge and then grabbing one in the morning when grabbing the sandwich. I’m definitely going to give this a try! We are always looking for quick meals/snacks for lunch, sports practice, etc. This is such a great idea!

I do this and go ahead and add mustard or hummus with no soggy results. I do use WW bread, so I don’t know if the softer white would get soggy.

I use flap-top sandwich bags and repack the completed sandwiches in the original bread bag. The double bagging prevents freezer burn.
