Scallion Saver

Random tip of the day (week? month? however often I feel like it?):

I like to buy stalks of scallions, and then, to keep them from going bad if I don't use them fast enough, I chop them up, put them into a plastic container and stick it in the freezer. When I need to use them, I just take out the container a few minutes before throwing a handful of them into a dish.

While I realize that scallions are not that expensive (according to Ms. FrugalMeals, they are $0.89 per bunch in Boston, but I find that they are $1.19 in New York City on average), this is not just a money saver, it is a time saver as well.

Similarly, I buy jars of minced garlic so that I don't have to bother with the cloves.
