Our local Save-a-Lot grocery store sells their ripe bananas for 19 cents a pound. When I happen to be there and they have some, I stock up! I peel them and put them in bags into the freezer. I love to eat just a plain frozen banana. My healthy version of a frozen fudge bar. :) I also use them in nice thick fruit smoothies - better than a milk shake! And occasionally I make banana bread and it is so handy to have them in the freezer and not be worried that they will go to waste.
