Tackle it Tuesday: organizing the freezer


On the top of my blitz list for today was the dreaded task of: organizing the freezer.

I think I would rather iron than do the freezer; nevertheless, I forced myself to do the worst first.  Everything else seems easier that way.  

While I was talking to my Mom on the phone, she said, “those list things never work for me”.  The problem with the inventory lists is that you have to be diligent and update them often.  

Once you lose sight of your freezer inventory, it’s all too easy to hurl anything in there anywhere… yeah.. I do it too.

So, I searched around and found this great printable sheet from organized home.

I selected the PDF version of this: 

freezer inventory/printable page from organized home.  It looks pretty easy to update.  There are little boxes beside each food item. 

 One slash equals=I have it.

 Two slashes (forming an X) =I’ve used it.  

I filled out the form with my goods, and now I’m putting it on the fridge.  The next time I have the laminator running, I’ll laminate a few copies, so it will be a reusable sheet.  Give me a few vis-a-vis markers, and I’m good to go!

For those of you who need a visual image, I thought this idea was genius.  It would take a little more creative time and energy, so I’ll save that for a rainy day. 

Lunch-in-a-box, creative magnet labels.

Happy tackling.  Check out 5 Minutes for Mom for more posts.
