Organizing your freezer

Do you have a freezer jammed full of food but have no idea what's really in there? Do you forget about what's in your freezer? Many people do the same thing.  You can save money by organizing and maximizing the space in your freezer.

Organize your freezer into categories.  The most common categories are:  vegetables, meats, prepared foods & desserts.  Use clear see through bins.  Organize prepared foods, like leftovers, in freezer bags or see through storage containers.  Mark each bag/container with the name of the food and the date you put it in the freezer.  Label each bin.  When a bin is full that means you don't need to buy anymore from that category.  Overbuying wastes money!
