When you buy a month’s worth of dinners at once, you end up with a ton of food. The only way to really make it work is to utilize your freezer. You don’t have to have a chest freezer just organize the one you have. Here are a few pictures and links to give you ideas of how to do it! They all look WAAAAY better than my freezer. But just in case you really, REALLY want to see what my freezer looks like, there’s a picture of it at the bottom 🙂
Here’s my favorite one that uses matching baskets and labels. Seriously, it puts my freezer to shame.
My husband is going to die when he finds out I’ve posted these pictures. But I think he is a genius for thinking of this solution! We needed a way to organize our freezer so it wasn’t risking our lives every time we opened it. We had these free flat rate boxes lying around and Voila! Both of the mail boxes are completely full of meat. I had about 43 chicken breast halves here. Then there’s fruit, deli meat, lots and lots of cheese (behind the ice cream) among other things.
In the door, we keep my smoothie packs and other random
items. So there you have it! It’s totally possible do have a month’s worth of food in just one normal sized fridge and freezer. You just have to be a little creative 🙂
