  Organizing Tip

Keeping Your Freezer Organized

The refrigerator in my house is a side-by-side, the refrigerator space on the right and the freezer space on the left. The freezer has 3 main shelves, 2 main bins, and some side pockets on the door. To keep items sorted, and therefore more easily found, here's my system and the types of items in each section:

Top shelf: Dessert items (ice cream, frozen pound cake, other treats we've frozen for dessert, like frozen bananas or frozen grapes)...sometimes a box of frozen SuperPretzels

2nd shelf: Meals that I've made and decided to freeze for another day

3rd shelf: Unprepared foods like frozen seafood, poultry, and meat

1st bin: Frozen veggies

Bottom bin: Prepared foods...frozen pot pies, pizzas, French fries

Side pockets: Homemade chicken or vegetable stock, ice packs

Also, here are 3 of my favorite freezer tips:

1) Always portion out food before freezing it. This way, you can easily defrost the portion you need. If it's an item you don't want sticking together, like hamburgers, just put them in a freezer bag nicely separated and store the bag flat.

2) Be sure, no matter what you're freezing, that you eliminate as much air as possible to avoid freezer burn. If you're using a freezer bag, squeeze the air out before you zip it closed. In fact, if you freeze a lot of food, you may be interested in purchasing a food saver, which will eliminate any air surrounding your food.

3) When you first freeze something, freeze it flat. For instance, if you're freezing soup in a well-sealed freezer bag, lay that bag flat on your freezer shelf. Same if you're freezing fruit or many other groceries. Once it's frozen, you can actually 'file it' upright in a magazine holder in your freezer, which saves a ton of space and can help you keep like-items sorted as well.
