Organizing the Freezer

It's Friday, yeah!!  So here's the best tip I've found this week, thank you Pinterest.  Use a dry erase marker to write on your freezer (or fridge.)

 
This also happen to coincide with use getting a beef this week, so it was perfect timing that I found this great post here.  Now, I have an upright freezer, so things don't get lost really, and the different cuts of beef and the chicken are in different spots, so I know when those are low.  However, I do forget what meals I've frozen and stuck out there.  Or I swear I still had some spaghetti sauce that I was going to use for lasagna, of course, I only go looking at 4 p.m. when I'm getting ready to make the lasagna and find I used it already.  So no more, when someone puts a meal in the freezer or takes something out, it WILL be added or erased. For a chest freezer, this could be a lifesaver.  No more mystery meat hiding down in the corner that you never find until the next time you defrost your freezer (or someone doesn't close it tight and everything thaws outs. :) )You could also do this with snacks for the kids in the fridge, then they wouldn't have to stand there with the door open forever trying to find something to eat.  See my handy marker with the built in eraser and magnet - gotta get you some of those!   It erases very easily and if there's any residue left, the original poster said she just wipes it down with rubbing alcohol occasionally.  What's the best tip or trick you've found this week?

That is a great idea. It seems impossible to keep track of what you've got in there. That should work! Glad to know.
