Just curious, how do you all organize your freezers to get the maximum usage of space out of it? :D

 

I have a 6.9 cu ft freezer and I found that as I'm putting in meats for storage (in freezer bags), they all freeze in odd shapes, and hence a lot of freezer space is wasted. Would love to hear how others do it!

I break down items into portions. Usually a "portion" for me is what fits in a "snack sized" ziplock bag. Some items (like quarters) take "sandwich sized" bags. I put the bagged items inside larger freezer bags (labeling if necessary). For organs, since I feed daily, I bag smaller sized portions that approximate 10% of a daily meal, and feed liver one day and "other" the next.

 

Having portions ready to go I can mix and match meals quickly, picking of a number of portions RMBs, fish, meat. etc to feed that day aiming for a balanced meal. Keeps it fast and easy, but does requires advance work. 

 

I mostly (but not always) feed frozen.

I have no organization. I wish I did, but I just don't. I use zip locks and just put them all in the freezer. Whatever I pull out, is what I pull out.

No real organization here either. I do my best to make it fit, but I don't have a system.

Uh yea, I would too. A bit envious I must admit.

I did score two cases of nice pig ears today (fur on) and some lamb liver and kidney. So I'm happy (for the moment) to add to my stash.

Funny how much having bits on hand adds to feelings of happiness. I've never stashed food for me or my family, but parish the thought that the Vizsla doesn't have a couple months worth of meat packed away.

At least you all can relate :D
