Freezer List

I really love having a chest freezer! Ours was given to us by my parents when they decided to change to an upright freezer a few years ago. It has been a huge blessing ever since.

The only problem with having an additional freezer is that food can get "lost" in it quite easily. This leads to frost-bitten food that gets tossed (which is NOT what we're trying to accomplish here). This can even happen in your regular freezer if its jammed full of food (from stocking up on those sales I tell you about right?). At the suggestion of my husband, I was suppose to make a list of what is actually in our freezer (outside and inside). I've finally gotten to it today (nesting has taken over)!
I just rummaged through the freezer- pulling out most everything so I could see the bottom. I wrote down everything as I pulled it out and then transferred it to a "pretty list" so I could mark off what I've used as I pull it out.

Here's our lists:
Inside Freezer:
Breakfast items:
banana muffins
puff pancakes
2.5 pkg bacon

frozen corn
3.5 pkg broccoli
hamburger buns
flour tortillas
thick corn tortillas
corn tortillas

pizza rolls
chocolate chips
cookie dough

** You don't have to categorize- I just did because I'm a nut and wanted to see the inside items more clearly

Outside Freezer:
2 butter
2 mozzarella cheese
4 mexican cheese
choc/vanilla ice cream
Slow Cooker Beef Stew
Glazed Ham
2 pkg meatballs
2 chipolte steaks
3 roasts
Chicken for enchiladas
4 pkg taco meat
5 pkg cooked chicken

Casseroles (at bottom):
Dream Spaghetti
Chicken Spaghetti
Chicken Tortilla Roll-ups
2 Chicken Pot Pies
Spinach Rice Casserole
Cream of Chicken Casserole
hoagie rolls
4 loaves bread
2 pkg hamburgers
5 lbs hamburger (uncooked)
5 lbs chicken breasts (uncooked)

**I just taped the list to the top of the freezer along with pen- this will be easiest for me to remember!
