Recently I was filling my freezer full of freezer meals and I found a big container of ham. I had completely forgotten about it and of course, it was freezer burnt. I am pretty sure that it is some leftovers from Thanksgiving 2015. It makes me sad to have to throw out food.
I know I should be better at keeping track of what I have in my freezer. I decided that with all the freezer meals I was making I should probably keep an inventory of what is in my freezer. So, I made up a freezer inventory printable to help remind me what is in my freezer.
This printable is great if you often make freezer meals, buy meat in bulk, or in general just have a lot of things in your freezer. We often have meats that I have cooked up like ground beef and shredded chicken. I have veggies that I have frozen (I prefer to freeze veggies instead of can them) from summer. When you add in freezer meals it makes for a very packed and disorganized freezer!
With the freezer inventory printable I can quickly look at what we have in the freezer. It helps me on busy days that I may not have time to cook a homemade dinner. I can just look at what we have in the freezer and grab a freezer meal.
There are 4 separate categories on the freezer inventory printable. One for your freezer meals, one for meats, one for fruits and veggies, and one for miscellaneous items. Just fill it out with what you currently have in your freezer.
Head over here to grab this great printable. Not only is it free but it will help save you money! No more food going bad before you have a chance to fix it.
