Freezer storage baskets

bellsmomNovember 17, 2013

A recent thread on the Cooking forum about freezers got me thinking about organizing my large upright freezer. After a lengthy defrosting, I was determined to come up with a better way to organize the contents.

Right now wire baskets are the best idea I have found. I found a combination of two sizes on Amazon for a reasonable price. They are also available on the site below.

What do you use to organize an upright freezer? What do you think of these? (My main criticism is the wedge shape which wastes bottom area.)

Any suggestions and/or alternatives would be appreciated.

Before we moved, I had a much larger chest freezer and I used the wire bins/drawer type stuff from the closet store section at home depot or Menards.
Here, the freezer is smaller and the bins would not fit. I used 2 plastic bins (costco) that fit nearly perfectly. I ordered 2 more hanging wire bins from the freezer people (Haier).
I still need to organize it better.
Funnily enough, the big freezer was much easier to organize than this smaller one.

Thank you, Wallycat.
I find that one of the frustrations is that most bins are too short--often only 12 inches long. That doesn't work well in an upright freezer.

Are the plastic bins you use solid or vented? Do solid sides and bottoms work in a freezer?
