Secrets of Success




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.

More Information:

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.

  • I was able to get fish boxes from the fish counter in my grocery store. They are really great. My new freezer is small. I regret getting rid of my larger one, since ther ies only DH and I now. I love to plan and make ahead so I have more time to do other things.I cook all of our meals due to dietetic restrictions mostly allergies, - by NORASPAT
  • I always try to rotate the food in my freezer. I like this method to help simplify the process. It would also help with stacking foods. I'm wondering about the quality of plastic dishpan used. Would a lower quality pan freeze and chip? Guess I'll be finding out! - by TYLFAMILY
  • I really like that idea thanks. I always put the date on things when I freeze them, but never thought of using plastic bins to help keep them organized - by PRECIOUSRAZOR
