Menu Plan: Freezer Clean Out

I’m so excited! I’ve been reading the book Saving Savvy (one of the books on my 2012 Book List) and been inspired to get my kitchen organized. This weekend I cleaned out my freezers.

Yes, I said freezers. We have a side-by-side in the kitchen and a mammoth freezer in the garage. I have to admit I don’t think either freezer had been thoroughly cleaned since we moved here a year ago.

The good news: We won’t have to buy meat for about six months. 🙂

The bad news: I had to throw away several items that went bad. 🙁

Anyway, I organized my freezer and even created a freezer inventory sheet (I’ll share that with you next week).

After I organized my freezer I was even more inspired and started creating meal planning sheets, chore charts, and reading lists. I’m on a roll folks! The good thing is that I’ll be sharing them all with you after I tweak them over the next few weeks. I want to make sure they work for me before I share them with you.

  1. I was just thinking yesterday about how I needed to make english muffins again. I’ve made them in the past, just haven’t found a recipe I’m crazy about yet. Yours look good. I’m going to check out your recipe!

  2. That’s always my fear with freezing stuff! I did have time over the weekend to freeze some meals though! Hope I remember they are there!

  3. Stopping by from Menu Plan Monday…

    Wow. All that looks amazing. Especially the pizza. And the homemade english muffins. And the enchilada.

    We cleaned out the freezer last week too. What I do to keep an inventory is just write directly on the freezer with a dry-erase marker. I don’t care what the freezer in the garage looks like, so it’s super easy to just write/erase directly on the freezer itself. And the best part is that I don’t forget what’s in there!

  4. Ooh, your menu plan looks so good – gosh, your pictures are AMAZING!! How do you menu plan each week? If you have a post about menu planning tips, tricks, product reviews, please be sure to link it up to our monthly linky: http://3boysandadog.com/deals/2012/simple-dinner-ideas-setting-up-your-menu-plan-dinnerideas/

  5. After inadvertently leaving my freezer turned off for about 48 hours, I had to do the whole freezer cleaning thing. I just mentioned to my husband that I thought I should start a freezer inventory log–I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

  6. I linked up your Chicken Enchiladas in my menu plan this week! Looks great!
