Tip Tuesday

My friend Rebecca at The Blessings of Modern Domestication does what she calls "Tip Tuesday".  She has some great tips every week so check out her blog.  This week, I thought I'd do one. 

Here's a quick tip for organizing your freezer.  Use boxes.  It may seem simple but it makes a huge difference when you're looking for something. 

Here's what part of mine looked like before.  I took all the veggies and put them in a box.  I took all the packaged chicken, hamburg, and other meats, and put them in a seperate box (not pictured).  Then I put all the french fries, and other miscellaneous things in yet another box.  Now when I need a bag of carrots I can go grab one instead of searching through all the items.  Here's what this half looked like when I was done.

Maybe you can't tell from the pictures, but it makes a huge difference.  Try it and see for yourself.  Let me know if you have other great organizing tips.

Thanks Kristine for the kind mentioning. I love your tip by the way. I'm thinking you have a freezer on the bottom rather than the top (like mine). I love the org tip but I'm not sure if it's going to work in my case. Although, I think you are on to something!!! I think this tip will work beautifully in my pantry (which needs some help). Thanks for sharing!!Here I come pantry & bins!!!

hmmm....I don't have an upright, but maybe you could flip the boxes sideways (with the opening facing out) and stack things inside them. I may give it a try in my regular freezer and let you know if it works.
