Here are some helpful tips to get your freezer in order in no time.
1. Freeze the right food
The first step to keeping freezers is knowing what foods can be frozen. Fruits and moist vegetables shouldn’t be frozen. Yogurt and fried foods are also not suited to freezing. If you end up freezing the wrong foods you will be adding clutter to your freezer for no reason. Try freezing meats and stews instead.
2. Divide the food into portions
Separate the food into portions that you are comfortable with eating. It may be easier to dump all the food in the same container but separating it first makes it easier to defrost. If your food is split into portions, it is easier to defrost for your next meal.
3. Keep food flat
Try to put your food into containers or arrange it flat before you freeze it if it is in a bag. This makes it easier to stack left over food on top of each other in the freezer. Stacking food is a great way to maximise on space.
4. Pick the right packaging
It is important to have different size containers so that you can use one that is a similar size to the food that you are freezing. If there is too much air surrounding the food it can reduce the quality of the food. Another option is to use bags. Make sure that you remove as much air from the bag as you can and that you close the bag properly. Using the right packaging preserves the quality of your food as well as saving space.
5. Invest in organisers
If you have a lot of food in your freezer it may be difficult to find what you are looking for. A great solution to this dilemma is to buy organisers. You can sort different types of food into each organiser so that it is convenient to find what you are looking for at a later stage.
6. Don’t put foods that melt easily in the door
The door is warmer than other places inside the freezer. It is better to store food that melts easily, such as ice cream, deeper in the appliance.
7. Include a label and date
Make sure that you mark the container clearly. Including the date on the label will help to ensure that you eat the food before it goes off. Knowing which food needs to be eaten is an important part of keeping an organised freezer.
8. Make an inventory
With an inventory it is easy to check what meals you have available. You can print out the inventory and keep it near the freezer as an easy reference. This helps to keep everything in order so that you don’t have to dig unnecessarily.
9. Colour-code food
A quick and easy way to distinguish different types of food is by colour coding. This method will enable you to find what you are looking for at a glance. Categories can include red meat, soups and poultry. Containers with different colour lids are ideal if you plan to sort your frozen goods using this technique.
10. Keep your freezer clean
To maintain an organised chest freezer, make sure that you keep your freezer clean. Defrost it at regular intervals and clean it out. Make sure that you dispose of any food that has expired. Also make sure that you use containers or bags that are properly sealed so that liquids don’t spill into the freezer.
