Which is why I absolutely love my freezer. My chest freezer to be exact. Secretly I would have prefered a freestanding fridge freezer, but I was told you can't put as much stuff into those as in a chest freezer.
And since the whole point of a freezer was to be able to store lots of food I sensibly chose the chest freezer.
Chest freezer versus Fridge freezer
Here's some pictures of both kinds of freezer:
|Chest freezer. This is the kind I've got.|
|Freestanding Fridge Freezer. The kind I secretly long for.|
Chest freezer gets very messy
The reason I secretly prefer the fridge freezer is that it's much easier to keep organized. Whereas if I have to get something out of my chest freezer, it's like going on an expedition to the North Pole. I often find myself longing for a pickaxe to claw my way to the product I need.
So I've been thinking about a way to make my life easier. A way to organize my chest freezer. At first I was thinking about boxes. But they would have to be exactly the right size. And that turned out to be a problem.
Luckily I have found the solution!
How to organize your chest freezer: the ultimate solution!
The ultimate solution for organizing your chest freezer is... Big Shopping Bags!
- They're cheap
- You can put a whole lot of stuff into them
- You can use different colored bags for different foods. That way what you're looking for is easy to find.
- They 'give' so they don't take up any more space than necessary.
I've got shopping bags for:
- The meat I got from the pig of my cousin Hank
- Storebought meat
- Fried food
- Ice Cream
I'm very please with the result!
