You know fall is just around the corner when the air starts feeling more crisp and you find yourself reaching for that cozy blanket that’s been put away all summer long.
And while I love the warm and lazy days of summer there is just something about fall. Whether it’s the colorful crunchy leaves under your feet, pumpkin flavors everywhere, the smell of crisp apples in the air, or a comforting bowl of warm soup. Fall feels like a warm hug that you have waited all year for.
And all at once, summer collapsed into fall. –Oscar Wilde

Before I share some easy, delicious, and frugal soup recipes with you- here are a few things to know about storing soup so you can make it stretch further, saving you money.
How Do You Store Soup?
Soup stores well in the refrigerator. In fact, many times it tastes even better the next day. Store soup for up to 4 days in the fridge.
Can You Freeze Soup?
Soup is the perfect meal to freeze especially since it’s easy to make a large batch to divide and use for lunches or dinners throughout the week.
However, be aware that you may want to avoid freezing soups that contain rice, potatoes (unless pureed), or pasta because they will get mushy when you thaw and reheat them. Your best bet is to prepare them and then add while you are reheating your soup.
Also, avoid freezing soup that contains milk because it may have a grainy texture when you reheat it. If you would still like to make a large batch of your favorite creamy soup to freeze, omit the milk, cream or cheese and again add it when you are reheating instead.
Helpful tips when freezing soup:
- Make sure that soup is completely cooled before putting it in a freezer bag or container.
- Leave room for expansion so when filling your container or freezer bag leave a couple of inches of space.
- Freeze in ziplock bags. After the soup has completely cooled, ladle in gallon size freezer bags and freeze soup flat to maximize the space in your freezer.
- Most soup can be safely frozen for up to 3 months.
Don’t forget to label your soup and include the date it was made as well as any instructions for reheating.

How to Thaw and Reheat Soup?
You can either thaw your soup overnight in the refrigerator or place it in warm water until you can loosen it from the container into a saucepan to reheat it.
Then, it’s as simple as heating it over medium-low heat to thaw it. You may need to add a little more liquid. Don’t forget the milk, cheese, or prepared pasta/rice if your recipe called for it. Bring to boil and then simmer until ready to serve.
Soup is best reheated on a stovetop or in an instant pot. Also, remember to only reheat soup once.
