Argh! It is annoying to try to get anything out of either freezer and forget doing it without moving half of the stuff. Of course, then it all gets tossed back in willy-nilly. Out of necessity today is the start of a freezer challenge. I will never empty them completely. The big freezer has a couple of deer's worth of meat and plenty of vegetables. I just want to get both freezers under control.
My personal rules are that I can only add to the freezers if it is a great deal. The main purchase I know will go in is SeaPak shrimp. I have coupons expiring soon and this is the only shrimp that does not make me break out in hives so I stock up when I can. I will allow myself to add items to it IF I use only ingredients on hand. The two items that come to mind are these freezer biscuits from A Home with A Smile and homemade rolls or bread. I hope to post some much better after pictures in a few weeks.
My first removal from the freezer was a gallon jug half full of milk and a container of Brunswick stew. It is a slow start but every little bit helps!
