Plastic baskets are great for keeping freezer foods organized!

    Seems like the baskets would take up a lot of room.. not sure how practical this solution would be for me.. but a good idea for someone I suppose

    @ Brianne, I totally agree. Also, those strawberries are going to get freezer Pretty, but not practical for ME.

    These are great for stuff that comes in bags, chicken nuggets, frozen fruit, stuff like that. They help keep items from sliding out the door!

    This is great for a small family, which consists of my husband and I. A good idea for quick freezing your fruit so they don't get all stuck together in the bags.

    I have about 4 baskets right now sitting around taking up space! Im going to try this!

    Before buying the baskets, make sure to measure the depth of your freezer shelves. This idea only helps if the baskets fit into your freezer.

    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?

  • Sue Edens Hamrick

    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!
