Ah, the freezer. It might just be our favorite piece of kitchen tech—keeping food fresh, cold and spoil-free. But there are ways to get more out of this household appliance (and spend less while you do it!)

Lifehacker recently posted a list of "10 Simple Freezer Tricks to Save You Time and Money."

There's some handy household tips about things like freezing meat and un-sticking plastic wrap, but there's also a few really useful ideas to help you save electricity—and money!

We love the hint about freezing old plastic bottles full of water to keep a steady temperature in the freezer so you limit the power needed to keep it cold! Plus, did you know you can temporarily revive a hard drive by freezing it for a day?

Check out the whole list here at Lifehacker.
