use a plastic dish pan in the freezer . It helps keep food easier to get to and easier to empty and clean the freezer. Its easier to take 4 containers out instead of 100 . Its also easier to rotate and keep meat fresher longer by placing meat in baggies and have a date on each bag yu put in the dish pan. Showing dates. Then Layer meat with new meat on the botton, & inside each baggie have each meat labeled as well as dated.
use the dollar containers from Dollar Tree! Baggies and labels for this idea!
If you place meat in baggies and label each and date them its easier to see which meat should be used up first, placing the older meat on top and the newer ones on the bottom. Great way to keep a freezer clean.

freezing food helps us to eat a little lessand I use less space in the freezer.Having an extra freezer helps to do this.
I cook up a large batch of vege's usually rice and put it in a large freezer bag.I then flatten the bag so the vege's(rice) is a thin layer,that way I can break off just the right amount that I need and it takes up less room in the freezer.
If you eat a lot meat, there is a good way to save money on it. Buy an entire pig or cow. It does cost an extreme amount of money to buy, but it lasts about a year and in the end you actually save a large amount of money because you don't need to buy meat for that entire year.
Just know you need a large freezer!
