No matter what size or shape your freezer is – it can be a pain to keep organized! I only have the freezer above my refrigerator (some day I’d love to have a separate freezer), but things get lost even in that tiny space. When my freezer is completely full, it is impossible to see everything at once.
Several years ago I came up with a Freezer Organization Chart to keep tabs on what I’d stored in there. I thought now would be a good time to share it on the blog – in case your freezers are filling up with fruit and veggies that you’re buying on sale during peak season!

This list is two pages of letter size paper. I suggest printing it out, laminating it, and using a dry erase marker to keep track of your freezer inventory. I use the boxes to write the date that I placed the item in the freezer. For instance, if I put a package of cooked chicken in the freezer today, I’d write “7/23” in the first empty box on the “Chicken – Cooked White Meat” row. When I take the item out of the freezer to use it, I just erase it from the list. (Write the date on the package too, so you know to pull the oldest stuff out of the freezer first.)
I left you some extra lines to write in things you keep in your freezer that I don’t keep in mine. There’s even a “Miscellaneous” section for you!
Have fun taking inventory of your freezer! Am I the only one who finds this task exciting? 🙂
