organize your freezer meals into weekly plans in the freezer
If you have gone
ahead and organized your chest freezer with crates (instructions
on how to do that here), there is an easy method to keep
track of your weekly meals easily using the crate method.
Once you have finished
cooking, separate each week's meals into its own crate. If
you have some "extra" meals, add them to a fifth
crate. Then label each week's crates with what week it is.
And if you use our Freezer Cooking
Calendar, you won't need to then relabel each crate with
what is in it (although each meal should still be individually
labelled), just simply labelling it "Week 1" and
"Week 2" and so on is good enough.
When you organize
your meals by each week, you will find that there is a much
less likelihood of meals going forgotten in the bottom of
your freezer. After all, you aren't saving time and money
freezer cooking if you forget to eat the meal before its time
