Love the menus. I have learned a ton from this page. I’ve instituted the no money days, and I’m now making a plan for my menu for the week. I do have a question. Are you able to freeze celery and those bagged apples and they come out not mushy or extremely wet? Since I plan on shopping one day, I need these things to last. Thanks so much!!

I have successfully frozen chopped celery to use in soup, but I have not thawed it out to use uncooked. I have never frozen apples, but maybe that is something you could google.

I freeze apples for smoothies and they freeze well.
