Essential Freezer Meal Prep Supplies
Before buying ingredients, it’s important you have all the necessary kitchen supplies for creating delicious and cheap freezer meals.
- Slow Cooker-Many freezer recipes require you use a slow cooker so be sure to have one on hand.
- Large Stainless Steel StockPot-You’ll want a large pot to fit all of your meal prep in. That way you can get it all done at once.
- Cookie Sheets-These can be used to layer foods to flash freeze.
- Stainless Steel Measuring Cups and Spoons
- Heavy-Duty Aluminum Foil-These heavy-duty meals require heavy-duty foil! Really though, regular foil tends to rip with these meals.

- Gallon-Size Freezer Safe Bags-Be sure to use zip bags that are made for the freezer.
- Permanent Markers-Once all your meals are put away in their containers, it can be difficult to tell which is which. Be sure to label your meals and include when it was made so you have an idea of how soon you will need to eat them.
- Disposable Aluminum Baking Pans-This will save you a ton of time cleaning up after you finish each batch of food. These pans are also convenient if you happen to be attending a potluck.
