If you find that the soups and sauces you put in plastic freezer bags fall through the wire rack of your freezer, try this freezing technique for liquids. Cool your leftover soups, sauces, etc. in the refrigerator then pour them into a resealable plastic freezer bag. Next, cut the top off of a clean milk or juice carton, place the sealed freezer bag into the bottom of the carton, and pop it in the freezer. Once frozen, remove the bag from the carton and you'll have a block that's easy to stack.

I freeze these types of foods on a cookie sheet after "flattening" them so they freeze fast and can be stacked in the freezer. Also they thaw quickly because they are so "thin". I started doing this with Basil pesto, and it worked so well. Remove the cookie sheet after the soups and sauces are frozen.
