Thanks! I'm going to have to give it a go this weekend as my tiny little freezer is out of control!

Be sure to measure the insides of your freezer before you buy a shelf insert - make sure it will fit! I only bring it up because I once bought a shelf insert for a cupboard and it ended up being too large and I needed to take it back.

For things that get wrapped up but are oddly shaped: I wrap them, and then put multiple kinds into a slightly larger, rectangular piece of tupperware (mine are Glass Lock) which stacks a little bit better with other things.

Having been short of money, I have even used boxes covered with garbage bags to make shelving to fit freezer spaces to suit me. For things getting freezer stuck, I use a blow dryer to make it release.

Yes, there are many shelving options for your freezer. I have always had small freezer/refrigerators so I know! These are usually in the aisle that has dish drain boards and cutlery organizers.

I store as much as I can as portion sized flat zip-lock packages so I can stack them: soup, casserole, pre-cooked rice, frozen veggies, pre-diced and/or choppped onions. By pressing the contents into the corners of the bag, I'm sure to get uniform, stackable bags and less dead space between packages. I put 2 pieces of bread in sandwich bags and stack those. Etc.

There all kinds of shelving for inside your regular cupboards - perhaps there is a size for your purposes.

Okay. I've noticed that a lot of couples/singles, buy in bulk and freeze, especially meats. I live in an apartment with a small refrigerator / freezer. The freezer is on top, is small and doesn't even have a shelf. So, you can imagine how brutal it can be to freeze things that are nice little shapes, like muffins and scones which I bake or even bread.

So, the question. How do you organize your freezer? Has anyone found a shelf that will fit in a shelfless freezer? I've discovered that many things fit in the ice maker box (I don't really use it, so it's handy for that), but am looking for suggestions for organizing a small freezer.

Thanks!
