Chopped Frozen Onion: A Better Thing Than Sliced Bread

Please, my friends, weep no longer. Help is here. If you’re stuck in the dark, tearful world of chopping onions with a knife, go — immediately — to your nearest grocery store and spend $1 on this wonderful eye-saver, in the Frozen Vegetables section.

One well-meaning money-saving book that I read recently argued against frozen onions, saying that you can save several cents by chopping your own. Now, you know that I like saving money even more than most people. But there is such a thing as carrying it too far. For me, standing over a counter and having to run away in tears — with a sharp knife in hand — every five seconds — is just not worth saving 50 cents. Especially when you consider that you usually won’t even use the whole onion for many recipes, in which case you’d probably end up throwing out the rest. And therefore, you’re not saving money anymore.

So take that important step. Go buy some frozen onion. It will change your life.

    I had no idea this even existed! I waste so much money on onions because I never use all of them and end up throwing so much out. Then there are times when I’ve thrown out my onion and don’t feel like going to the store for something as ridiculous as that. This sounds excellent, and I will DEFINITELY be looking for this over the weekend. Thanks for the tip 🙂
