When it comes to the freezer, organization is no different from elsewhere in the house: The key is to maximize space and create an easily accessible home for everything.

For more information on efficiently stocking your freezer, read the original article, A Guide to Freezing Food.

Stocking the Freezer Efficiently

• Consider putting labeled bins in your freezer for veggies, sauces, ready-to-eat meals—whatever you are planning to use most often.

• Pour liquids such as soups and sauces into plastic bags of the same size. Lay them flat to freeze, then neatly stack the frozen bags. Most freezer bags are made of #4 LDPE (low-density polyethylene), which is not known to leach chemicals. However, if you are concerned about putting hot food into plastic, wait until your food cools to room temperature before packing it into bags.



• Freeze food in wide-mouth glass jars made specifically for canning and freezing.

• Lay out pieces of produce to freeze individually on cookie sheets, then transfer them to labeled bags or stackable containers.
