“My Cup Runneth Over”
and your cupboards, refrigerator, freezer and all other storage closets!
You purchased several months of food — and now in order to have it for a later date you must freeze those items. However, the freezer is already at capacity. Here are a few tips to help you maximize that space:
Side by Side: If you struggle to fit all your frozen goods into such a narrow space try these tips: Remove the item from the box, that takes up valuable real estate, snip off the cooking instructions and place both in a bin inside your freezing compartment. If you prepared soups, sauces or have leftovers, place them in a Ziplock bag and once they are frozen store them vertically.
Top Freezer: Create visual separations by using zones. Such as leftovers, premade meals, veggies, frozen fruit, meats, dessert. If your top freezer does not have a shelf add your own to prevent teetering towers of rock-solid items from sliding out and landing on your foot.
Bottom Freezers and Drawers: It is a pain to bend over and rummage through the messy stacks. Purchase a stable bin that fits inside your freezer and keep like items in the same bin. That way the bin can easily be pulled out, and standing upright, you can select what you wish to remove and use.
Chest Freezers: You didn’t plan to let that value pack of chicken thighs become freezer burned – but there they were at the very bottom in the dark recesses of the unit. Here you might want to use a large clear bag labeled for Veggie, Meat, Chicken, Leftover and etc. You can easily pull out the bag to access the contents. Also, consider purchasing a magnetized white board to jot down what you placed in the freezer and the date.
Now that you have space for foods the folowing links will provided information on how to prepare the foods for the freezer in order to preserve texture, color and taste.
