All my spices are in my freezer door. They are in alphabetica order too. That really helps when I'm looking for something for a recipe I'm making. In the freezer, my Healthy choice TV dinners are on the top shelf, Vegetables & fruits on the middle shelf and meats on the lowe shelf.
I got really nerdy yesterday and picked up a couple of plain white plastic bins from Target and separated meat, veggies and fruit. Now I just have to make sure that I give my FoodSaver a workout this summer while things are in season and stock up.

I use Zip-Lock bags for a lot of my freezing. You can freeze them flat and then they stack easier. I wrap my hamburger patties individually in Saran Wrap. I stack 5 patties together and wrap again in Saran Wrap or store in Zip-Lock bags.
I recycle the Zip-Lock bags when I empty them if they haven't contained raw meat. I turn the bag inside out and wash it in my dishwater, let drain until dry.
On my blog I placed a photo of my refrigerator freezer and one of the area I store canned foods.
Rich and I are working on turning the closet in the computer/craft room into a pantry. Can't wait until it is finished. Right now I have my pantry goods tucked in every little nook and cranny around the house.

I use Glad storage containers, Lock N Lock & my Food Saver bags. My freezer is well stocked at the moment because I did a lot of batch cooking & froze for meals & individual lunches plus we got an awesome deal on hamburger which I separated & froze. Keep the ideas coming! : )

I use a combination of Ziploc Twist N Seal 2 cup storage containers and rectangular Lock N Lock 6 cup containers with 1/2 cup, 1 cup, and 1 1/2 cup ramekins. This way all my food is the way it should be when it goes into the freezer, as well as when it is reheated it doesn't all run together. I use the Twist N Seal containers for soups, stews, one dish wonders, crock pot leftovers, and other meals that are fixed in one large container. Everything else goes in the Lock N Locks.

I noticed that in other sections of the Freezer Queen's forum, team members were talking about how they organize and use their freezers to stock up for their families. Here you can post your ideas about how to organize your freezer.
