    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.

    Any tips for those of us that are single and only have a freezer on the top of fridge? About 1/4 size of the unit. Thanks!

    Know this is an older post but hope this helps: I bough extra Grocery bags, the kind made of material, from the store and use these in our chest freezer. Makes finding thigs alot easier. Have hamburger in a couple, chicken in one and pork in another. Store cheese in a clear bin on the top.

    I have 2 freezers. The chest freezer contains meat and I also use cloth bags. The upright is fruits and vegetables. Fruit goes on the top shelf. Vegetables are divided by type on the rest of the shelves. I do not use anything in that one. As long as I'm the only one in there things stay orderly.

    The small freezer on top of the unit is my 'short term' freezer. This is where stuff I will be using that week goes. My neighbors are all what we refer to as 'hard core' Amish so this is the one I allow them to place a gallon or two of ice cream in. I don't want people in and out of my deep freeze. I gets me some free goodies as a thank you.

    I will have to attack my freezer tomorrow! I just had an avalanche of frozen goods falling out of my freezer today... hopefully this will keep that from happening again
