I've recently bought a chest freezer which doesn't really have much in it at the moment. I have a massive food shop being delivered tomorrow and much of it will end up in the freezer.

How do you keep a log of what's in yours?

Do I need to buy a load of post it notes?

Just keep a list in a note book and cross off as you use it. Not that I do, I never really knew what was in mine and often found stuff at the bottom that I had forgotten about!!
keep a word document of what goes in and when ..print and stick to lid of freezer...delete and update when you take anything out !
Does it have baskets inside to help with the organisation, ummmm?
I printed-off an A4 sheet with a list of what we freeze and a box for how many we have and then laminated it. As we fill it we write numbers on it with a plastic-pen and then wipe-off and correct as we use items.
You usually get one, possibly two, baskets with a chest freezer. The very first thing we did (many years ago) was get six baskets (it's a large freezer!) from these people....made-to-measure to make use of every bit of space. An absolute must, if you want to remain sane!

I bought a load of those large freezer bags from M and S. they stand in the bottom of my chest freezer and I have one for dog stuff, one for human meat and fish, one for fruit and veg and one for carbs. In the bit that sits over the compressor, i keep ready meals, and in the three hanging baskets, I keep open packs of stuff and things like frozen butter. i don’t need a log because I know where stuff is.

It just has one basket where I mainly keep herbs and garlic/chilli/ginger...etc

Ginge..thanks for that :-)
I keep a list on my phone.
I just chuck every thing in and hope for the best,then I get a surprise when I am making a meal.
I had big plastic tubs in mine- one for meats, one for veg, one for puddings etc...made it easier to lift each tub out rather than having to almost climb in the thing to paw through everything.
I have a meat box, a fish box, a veg box (just ordinary cardboard boxes), breads slot down in front of them. 2 top baskets hold soups, home-made ready meals, oddments etc. I know what's in all of them.

I hadn't thought of cardboard...
Are you a cannibal Woofgang ? :)

HaHa...it sounds like it :-)
hahahaha........maybe........

I did plan on being good but I just dumped everything in the freezer in no particular order and stuck the recipe on the front.

I will go back and organise it....maybe.
I bet you don’t!!!!
Whenever I get a new freezer (am on my fifth over 40 years) I always plan to organise it and make lists....I never do. The bag thing works well for me :)
Question Author
I'm terrible. I like my surroundings to be neat and tidy...so I hide everything in cupboards...in no order :-)

Sort it out tomorrow, Ummmm. You will be cursing when you are rummaging in the chest saying, 'I know I've got some fish fingers, somewhere!'
Is it in the garage?
