We just got a Costco membership and have started filling our pantry. Now we've started freezing some stuff because we just don't use it fast enough.

What are some things that are good to buy in bulk that freeze well? Does shredded cheese freeze well?

I know regular cheese can be frozen but then its more crumbly when thawed, so I think that shredded cheese would do great. It just might not be perfect shreds when thawed.

Shredded cheese does freeze very well, just buy a decent quality. We tried a generic a few times and it seemed like the flavor was a little off after being frozen.

We also buy tons of fresh fruit and certain veggies that are in season and freeze it for smoothies, snacking, and cooking.

Shredded, yes. Bar, no.

You can freeze herbs as well like cilantro if it is going into soups.

Yes it does, I have also been keeping nuts, flours and shredded coconut in the freezer and it is all fine. You can freeze fruits & veggies too though for some you'll want to remove the peel and cut first.

I once threw a bar of cheese in the freezer to keep my LO's out of it and forgot about it and it was fine too. But I do usually shred it first.
