Space-Saving Freezer Tip

posted by Andrea | 09/22/2010

I freeze a lot of food — especially this time of year when we have so many fresh fruits and veggies around. We do have an extra freezer in the garage, but it still seems like I need more space {or maybe just less stuff}

Either way, I make the most of my freezer space by storing food in resealable plastic bags {with labels; of course}. I pre-measure fruits, veggies, broth, soups, sauces, etc. and freeze them laying down so they are nice and flat.

Then I stack them in shoe boxes or plastic bins with the labels facing out.

This method saves tons of space in our freezer.

And since they are pre-measured, I know exactly how many “bags” I need for each recipe {which save me time}.

I don’t know about you, but space and time are at a premium around our house, so I’ll be using this method for a while!
