To keep an inventory of food in your freezer, keep a list.
Make a list of the food in your freezer and type into a word processing program on your computer. Remember to use a print that is easy to read; Times News Roman is an easy to read print. Don't forget to save the file in case you need to print another one out. Or you can hand write the list.
You may want to make a list of the foods in categories or in alphabetical order. Print this out and attach it to a corkboard. You can hang the corkboard near or on your freezer. Or place it on a hard surface and lean it on the wall.
For every package of frozen foods, stick one straight pin for each package next to the printed item. Remove or add as needed. Use craft straight pins, the ones with the different color heads.
Initially this may take a bit of time to create, but it will be easier to keep track of the food in your freezer.
I also do this to keep track of my packages of aluminum foil, various sized plastic bags, wax paper, plastic wrap, etc. I stock up on these items when they are on sale.

Brill idea! I'll try this - comic sans is a lovely clear font - very easy to read. (12/06/2009)
