Let’s face it: organizing your freezer is probably not at the top of your priority list. After all, it’s all too easy to dump things in there and then forget about them until you need them again or realize it’s time to get rid of them. However, getting your frozen items should not feel like an arctic excavation. When you go into your freezer for your favorite fruits, sweets, or dinners, you’ll feel satisfied and stress-free. Keep in mind our top four tips for keeping your freezer clean and spacious!
3 tips on how to create space in your freezer and keep it fresh
Throw some food away
The first step in refreshing your freezer is to get rid of goods that are beyond their fresh condition. Keep in mind the nine-month rule (or twelve months for meat) and threw away anything that has passed this time limit. Also, keep in mind that freezing can modify the texture of meals, so anything that would be considerably changed would be best consumed sooner and preserved in the fridge.
Do not freeze food
Salad greens are surely not products we want to squander, but when frozen, they not only become mushy and limp, but they also lose flavor. Celery, cucumbers, onions, peppers, and sprouts all suffer the same fate. Instead, store them in refrigerator crisper drawers for the longest possible shelf life, or freeze them solely if they will be used in smoothies or soups that do not require their natural crispness. Dairy items such as soft cheeses and yogurt, as well as mayonnaise-based salads such as egg, chicken, ham, tuna, and macaroni, do not freeze well, so store them in the fridge as well.
Labels are your best friends
Who didn’t like labelling stuff when they were younger? Recreate your favorite childhood craft by labelling the food in your freezer. Not only will this keep you on top of what’s what but writing expiry dates will keep you and your family safe from bad food. You may make this task more enjoyable by using your creativity to create unusual or stylish labels! Consider it an interior design project for your cold storage.
