How to organize freezer:
1. Ditch the Boxes.
This may seem like a no brainer, but boxes take up A LOT of space in the freezer. Do yourself a favor and toss the boxes and organize the items into smaller bins. This will add so much space to your freezer.
2. Magazine Racks.
3. Use a White Board.
Use a small magnetic white board on the outside of your freezer to keep track of what you have. It is very easy to loose count of how many bags of chicken nuggets or frozen corn you have.
The white board will keep your freezer inventory up to date.
4. Plastic Bins to organize.
Have you ever seen the small plastic bins at Dollar Tree? These bins are great for keeping similar items in. Easily find packages of ground beef or frozen chicken when they are placed in their own bin in the freezer.
5. Use Binder Clips.
I haven’t tried this yet, but I have heard of people using binder clips to hold partially full bags of frozen fruit and vegetables to the bottom of a wire rack in the freezer. I imagine this makes the bags much easier to see.
6. Label Everything.
I love my label maker! Not only does it help me see what I have in the freezer if everything is labeled, but it also helps the kids know where to put things away. If you want to use bigger labels, I love these chalkboard labels!
Not only are they nice and big, but they are pretty, too. 😉
7. Add Shelving.
If you are not happy with the shelving in your freezer, why not take out the factory shelves and add your own helper shelves. This will give you the opportunity to place the shelving only where you need it.
This works great if you are trying to organize the upper portion of a fridge freezer. If you don’t like the idea of taking out the existing shelving, you can always add an under the shelf basket.
8. Freeze Flat.
I love putting together freezer meals, but they used to take up a lot of space in my freezer. Then I discovered these hands free baggie holders!
I fill these up with my crockpot meals, zip them up and freeze things flat in plastic bags. Once they are frozen, I like to stand them upright in my clear bins so I can quickly and easily see what meals I have on hand.
You can also stack on top.
9. Try using Reusable Shopping Bags.
If you are trying to think of creative ways to organize your freezer and you have a deep chest freezer, you may want to try reusable shopping bags. It can be difficult to find everything in your deep freezer.
However, if you have all of your beef in one bag and all of your poultry and fish in another, it will make it easier for you to grab just what you need.
10. Use a FoodSaver.
Ok, this might seem like an organizational tip to you, but hear me out. I love my FoodSaver. And yes, it saves me loads of money because it keeps our food fresh as the day I bought it.
When you use a FoodSaver, all of your items will be vacuum sealed. With less air in your packages, you will be able to store more items in a fraction of the space.
The only draw back of the FoodSaver is that it can be expensive. My foodsaver is doing great and going strong after several years. I cannot begin to tell you how much money the FoodSaver has saved me.
I have never had to throw out food that saw stored in a FoodSaver. No more spoiled or food with frost bite from freezer bag seal.
