Hi everyone, so in this video, I am going
to show you guys how to organize a deep freezer. So we just
bought a deep freezer for the garage for all the extra meat
and when we bought it, I was so excited to organize it
because I’ve never organized a deep freezer before and
I get excited to organize spots that are new that I’ve
never done before. That sounds kinda weird but I’m excited
to show you what I’ve done.
If you don’t have a deep freezer, because I know a lot of
people don’t have a deep freezer, then you can watch the
video and get ideas for a space that’s really deep where
you want to make the bottom items accessible. So here is our deep freezer so I can can quickly
show you guys what it looks like and I can explain
what I’ve done here. So since this is my first time organizing
a deep freezer and I was super excited. We got it and I spent
maybe three hours online researching containers that would divide
the space and make things easy accessible. Especially
the things on the bottom because the space is so deep. So
I spent 3 hours shopping online, but it was totally worth
it as you can see how perfectly these bins fit. Okay, so maybe
there’s half an inch here, there’s space right here, there’s
no space right here, there’s no space right here.
So everything just fits perfectly and it just looks beautiful.
Let me show you guys what I did right here.
Since this space is so deep, I knew I needed to get stackable
bins with handles so I can easily pull something up to get
to things on the bottom without getting frustrated. So when
you have a deep space, you want to have stackable bins with
a handle. So I got recycling bins that stack real nicely
with a handle. I can just pull this up whenever I want to
get to whatever’s on the bottom. So I just pull this up and
you can see I have 2 more recycling bins on the bottom.
They have handles as well. So what I did was I sorted all of the meat,
so I have ground beef here, the bin I just took out
has steak. This has other meat and there’s ground beef
down there. But you can see everything is totally accessible
and categorized and at the same time I labeled
all the packaging so I knew when we bought everything.
So this was bought in October 2012, so I know when I am
coming to get it that it’s still good because I can tell
how long it’s been in the freezer. Everything is labeled,
everything is categorized, and everything is in accessible
bins that easy to access. If I want to get into that bin,
I can easily lift this up and then stack on top when I
am done. So the freezer actually came with this container
– now it’s a tiny container, you would think it would
come with another container but I guess they expect you to organize
it yourself. But this container fit the chicken we bought
from Costco so it fits perfectly inside and that’s where
that goes. I can slide it over and show you guys what’s under
here. These are boxes that fit perfectly in here.
In this box I have all my holiday baking ingredients that
I freeze so they last longer. So it’s coconut, cranberries,
pecans, almonds and I think there’s some walnuts
in there. The bottom box as all our ice packs. So these
are the small things that I felt were just floating
around in our freezer in the kitchen and it was frustrating
me so much because I just kept seeing them and they were
all over the freezer. But they are all nice and contained
here at the bottom and easily accessible. This fits
over the top and you an see that space is maximized. There
is maybe one and a half inches of empty space right
here, but it’s maximized.
So what you want to do when you organize the freezer or
the deep freezer or any cold spot in general, is you want
to wear gloves because your hands are going to get so cold.
So wear gloves when you organize this space. So if you want to know where I got these organizing
products, you can check out my website, Alejandra.tv/products
and you will see these recycling bins there as well.
I will also put a link at the bottom of the video as well.
Okay so those are my ideas for organizing a deep freezer or
any space that is deep that you want to make the bottom
items accessible. If you have other ideas on how to organize
a deep freezer or a freezer in general, you can leave a comment
blow, or a video response. I will see you guys soon!
