    That's a good idea!!

    It can be set up almost like the one that I use for managing my money.

    I always have trouble keeping things straight in the freezer. It is so hard, for some reason.

    I'm going to try using plastic or coated wire baskets just small enough to fit inside and stack in the deep freezer. This should help organize thing more and help eliminate searching and digging for desired items!!

    The plastic may crack depending on quality, wire would be better especially if they come with handles that you can lift out and search through. Don't go oversized or you will defeat your purpose and not keep it sorted and hard to lift. Smaller ones for chicken thighs, wings, breasts, legs etc. beef ground, steak, cubed etc. you get the idea.

    Makes sense. I should try it. I just have a small freezer area in the big refrigerator... not an actual free standing deep freezer, but I can use some organization tips. Thanks!

    Thanx, KarenB.

    I thought about that also, even though the basket that came with it is plastic.

    I thought about looking into those baskets that are used for closet storage items like shoes, ect.. Smaller so that they fit in the deep freezer easily. Home Depot, Lowe's and Target seem like the best three to try for such items!

    Today, I start looking through the deep freezer and threw away some stuff that got dried out and was no good. There's some room in there now, but I still have to look through there for mor stuff that's no good or will never get used.

    Took it out with the trash. I will go through it again next week before trash day to find unwanted items. Then I'll defrost it.

    I'm just so sick to death of not having any room in the freezers!!! I want to be able to buy a few items on sale, and know that tjhere is a lot of room in there to for frozen storage.

    Just found some white coated wire baskets at Amazon.com. I think I'll go with THESE. Here's the link;

    Good idea. Measure to be sure they fit together in your freezer.

    I DID.

    I plan to put one or two of the small ones in the fridge's freezer, two large ones and a small one in the deep freezer.

    I figured I'd get four sets to make sure that there are enough. Any that are left, I can use them for other things.
