We hang a cork board by the freezer to organize the meat in our freezer. List each type of meat along one side of the board, such as Beef, Chicken, Pork. Under these categories we list such as chicken, boneless breasts leg quarters and ground. Next to each we place a push pin for each helping that is in the freezer. Such as bacon under pork one pin per pound of bacon. Under Beef, under ground beef we put one pin for each pound. When we buy ground beef we separate into pound packages or freeze into patties.
By looking at our board we know how much we have of each type of meat and know if we need to buy more when each type is on sale.

This is a good idea. You don't have to have your freezer hanging open while you are looking to see what you have on hand. I tried to do this with a dry erase board but I found I wasn't updating when I added or removed items. I think the cork board/push pins would be more user friendly.
