My mom was here a couple of weeks ago and she was an enormous help in getting some things organized around here! She is the one who came up with this brilliant idea for organizing the freezers and I've hesitated to realize how much I would love and benefit from this organization!
It seems like I am forever mentioning here that my freezer needs cleaned out - anyone need a reminder? This is how it looked when my Mom and I started (YIKES!):
We took everything out! Purchased bins from Wal-Mart with holes so the air could move through and then sorted everything into their allotted bins. I'm loving having my food organized - and even though I used to sort like things, this has been even better!
It is so handy to be able to reach into one bin and know what is there. It is handy to be able to glance and see how much cheese there is or if I need something that is on sale. It is handy that David (and eventually our children) will be able to find things!
I love that the bins don't have to be organized inside themselves (unless you want them to) the fact that the food is already sorted into the bins is organized in itself!
The categories I have are:
Meat x 2
Freezer organization, I'm loving it! More organizing ideas coming every day this week!
