TIPS that will save time on daily tasks are music to any parent’s ears.
Fortunately, one mum has shared her hack that knocks hours off meal prep every week.
In a post on Facebook, the Australian woman called Kirsty opened up about how she trims down time spent cooking in the kitchen.
She explained that, straight after her food shop, she spends 15 minutes chopping up vegetables.
The mum continued: “I simply chop up all the veg I need for the meals I have on my meal plan, and put them into zip-lock bags which go straight into the freezer.”
She accompanied her advice with a picture of veg-packed food bags, each labelled with the dish they were destined for – including ‘carbonara’, ‘chow mein’ and ‘stir fry’.
This is such a great idea!
Kirsty added: “Then, all I need to do is a quick defrost, and put them straight into the frying pan. So convenient for those weekday meals!”
Fellow social media users were very impressed by her easy hack.
One described it as a “game-changer”.
Another commented: “This is such a great idea. I do this for my smoothies and now I’m going to do it for my meals too!”

A third shared: “This is a top idea, and so organised.”
However, others weren’t quite so convinced by the idea.
Some said they had tried the method before, and their veg had ended up “mushy” or “soggy” after being frozen.
