I think I'm going to try some advice I got from Mennoly on our monthly chat thread. She suggested getting some colored freezer baskets and coding them to foods - like yellow for chicken, red for beef, green for vegetables, etc. That would probably help me- plus I'm going to start keeping a running list of what was put into the freezer and when. I do mark and date packages when I put them in the freezer, but like everyone who has a chest freezer knows, they still get buried in that 'bottomless box"
Sharon, you are just so darned organized I feel ashamed of myself! I know I could do better with an upright freezer. Maybe in a year or so I'll see if I can talk DH into making the change over
In the meantime, I guess I'll take Karen's advice and get out their and get into the darn thing and rotate everything. I'll probably wind up getting rid of whatever made its way to the bottom and got forgotten there
Thanks for your input - it really helps and gets me thinking!
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He wlll make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
