    This is a great idea !! The lists don't work for me either. I have always done the FIFO method anyway. We are a family of eight now and are going to invest in a stand up freezer after the first of the year. I will go over this idea with my DD and I am sure that we will be going shopping for plastic containers soon. I think we may do something like this when we re-organize our big pantry also! Thank you,
    Monica

    We use wire baskets in our freezer - the thicker kinds you can find at home improvement stores. The process is the same though - first in, first out.

    Also, when I freeze soups or other items I will press it out flat in the zip top bag and freeze it on a sheet pan, that is resting on top of the baskets. Once it is frozen, I will store it standing up, kind of like a file cabinet.
    Hope this makes sense.

    Bins or baskets - both definitely help in keeping the freezer organized!

    We received our new freezer today and now I have to remove whats in the chest freezer. I have 6 shelves and going to separate the meats per shelf. 1 for premade meals/soups and the bottom one for soup makings, bones, veggie ends etc. Am so happy not to be digging to see what I have.
    I also make sauces and freeze them in ziplock bags flat so the stock, some soups are frozen flat as well.

    Any help for a chest freezer? I have a small freezer and use baskets but only a couple will fit with lots of extra space. Guess I need a hint on how to stack the baskets and still be able to get to stuff without having to empty the freezer every time I need something.
