Plastic baskets are great for keeping freezer foods organized!

    Do you have any great ideas for the little chest freezers? Whatever I need, it's at the bottom or I forgot it was there.

    Marie - You could still use baskets, but taller ones may be more practical. To help keep track of what you have, try writing what is in the bottom on a paper list you can attach to your freezer either with magnets or tape. Also add a pen on a string close by and when you use something "from the depths", just cross it off. You could also have a running "need to replenish" list on a white board. Hopefully that would be a smaller smaller list. :)

    Marie - you could use different color taller baskets, one for veggies, chicken, pork, etc. A list attached to the edge of the basket, similar to the tags, might help too. I'll let you know if I think of any other ways to keep track of the bottom items.

    do you think this would work for a chest freezer?

    Amy - there are baskets especially made for chest freezers. They usually have extended hooks coming out oun each corner for stacking. When I had my chest freezer I found they were extrememly handy to have. The best advice I can give you is to keep an active list and once a year go to the bottom and see what you missed! Yep, you have to go there! Happy freezing!
