Organizing: Day 11 The Freezer

We have two freezers, one in our kitchen attached to our refrigerator and one in the garage. You cannot currently get to the one in the garage because we are in the process of cleaning out/ remodeling the garage and the soon to be 4th bedroom. Because of that, we have tools, drywall, wooden boards, trim, etc all over the garage. We also have a ton of my parents' things from their store that closed in September we are storing for them so I just couldn't even go there.

The freezer inside however was a completely different story. It had stuff almost falling out of it. Here is our interesting BEFORE:

Dear goodness I am embarrassed to even put that out there. But in the name of all things organized we are pushing forward.

The first thing I did was put everything out onto the counters and clean the freezer with some Basic H2 .
 Here is the freezer all nice and completely cleaned out.

Next I put some baskets in that I purchased from the Dollar Tree for $1.00 each.

The bottom white wire drawer now holds whip cream, some cheese, and some applesauce and blackberries we froze from our local Orr's Farm Market this summer.

The purple basket above it holds all the meat in this freezer. The deep freezer in the garage holds all the other meat. We just bring in some meat whenever this freezer is getting really low so we don't have to go out and grab it. I know... lazy.

The next basket holds breads and veggies. The tator tots wouldn't fit in the basket and they were being used tonight for dinner so I just rolled them up and put them next to the basket. After tonight they won't be there.

The basket above it holds all our desserts. It has the smoothie items, our frozen fruit, the kids frozen fruit pops and my chocolate ice cream. 

The door baskets hold some frozen juice, corn polenta and some peaches we froze from the farm market.
Overall, a very nice redo.

  5. Looks great. I really hadn't thought of using baskets in my freezer before. But I have a top freezer... so will have to think it through.
