We are about to begin the summer and it's the National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. Aren't these enough reasons to enjoy an ice cream today?
If your answer is "No, I'm trying to save money!" then you should take a look at these tips that will help you save money while still being able to enjoy a chocolate ice cream.
Join an email list for free ice cream
Many ice cream vendors encourage you to join their mailing list by offering a special reward. In some cases, you can get discounts and even a free 2.5-ounce scoop of ice cream!
They usually offer deals throughout the year and even special gifts on your birthday.
You can get some of these offers in places like Cold Stone Creamery, Friendly's or Baskin Robins.
Give store brands a chance
Once you get to the ice cream aisle at the grocery store you must avoid those expensive frozen treats!
Nevertheless, you don't need to actually avoid buying one. You just need to check the store brands and you will find way better prices. Their flavors are incredibly awesome and they will help you save your money!
Make your own ice cream
If you put a little effort, you can manage to make your own ice cream! You can either invest to buy a dessert maker machine or you can use your freezer to make some fruit ice cream.
There are many recipes to make ice cream online, so start making some research and become an ice cream professional.
Save for later!
If you behave properly and save some ice cream for later, then you won't have to buy more in a short period! But, what about freezer burn?
Saving money on ice cream also means you should never throw out ice cream because of the freezer burn!
The best way to avoid it is to place a plastic wrap directly on top of the ice cream before replacing the lid. This method will keep it fresh for a while longer.
Another tip is to put the ice cream in the back of the freezer so that it is less exposed to air and temperature fluctuations.
