    I like this idea - freezer storage with plastic baskets & laminated paper labels to avoid having to dig around to find something

    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!

the fridge door where temperatures are subject to fluctuation. Instead, milk does best in a stable temp zone, like on the middle or top shelf and all the way in the back where it’s coldest.

An organized and properly maintained fridge is key.

For the future art room. Something I don't really ever talk about is how I paint when I'm either stressed or bored out of my mind. It's calming and no 2 paints ever come out looking the same.

Pretty Pantry Here's a pantry that packs a punch. Keep food organized by assigning a shelf to each group (grains, baking ingredients, snacks, etc.). Line shelves with laminated fabric -- it's easy to clean and adds a splash of bright color. Use clear plastic containers to store your pantry goods and add an adhesive label to each container for an extra measure of organization
