Frozen Vegetable Mix for Soups

If you have just a little leftover vegetables from dinner, don't throw them out. Take a large freezer Ziploc bag and designate it as the vegetable soup bag. Every time you have a little leftover veggies, throw it in the freezer bag. When it comes time to make soup, you have a stockpile of frozen veggies of all different kinds for your soup!

I am soooo glad people are finding this helpful. It makes me want to keep going since I don't feel like I'm just doing this for the heck of it! If anyone wants particular things addressed, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Wow, I am shocked that you use a ziploc bag for this! ;-) The 1st time I actually stumbled across your blog I quickly noticed that besides being thrifty and cloth diapering and attached parents we have something else in common. I am a fellow ice cream bucket fanatic! The 1st thing I ever reused an ice cream bucket for was leftover vegetables for soup. Then I started saving leftover bits of meat and gravy in a 2nd ice cream bucket, in the freezer. When they are pretty full, you have the best soup you've ever made.

Ahhh! If I had room in the freezer for an ice cream bucket of vegetables I would do it, but I had two deer in there when I started doing it and a ziploc squished in wherever I could find room. Then I just got in the habit of a ziploc. Shamed on my own blog! How embarrassing :P
I'm about to put half a cow in there, but if I have room, I'll start using the ice cream bucket!
