Organising a Chest Freezer?

I am hoping for a bright idea! My chest freezer is quite large, and has 3 baskets on top. I know I'm disorganised, but I can never find what I want without loads of trouble! I do realise it's my own fault for just hurling things in after a shop! I once put cardboard boxes in the bottom to try and help. It did a bit, but not enough. So I decided I'd ask you clever lot fo any ideas!


Any thoughts gratefully recieved!
Thanks, pam.x

I had a deep chest freezer one time and I know what you are talking about. The bottom of the freezer always seems so hard to organize and keep it organized. I ended up adding some plastic dividers in mine and raising up the bottom just a bit to make it easier to get to it. I use some old plastic containers to build a raised shelf in mine. Now I added some dividers in there with some plastic sheets. In there I was able to add all veggies in one section, meats in another, and fish in another. It made it so much easier to find in the end. Each time I shopped I would move the older food to the baskets on top so it would be used first and the newer food I would put in the sections on the bottom.

I've never owned a chest type freezer and your question is the reason as I felt sure it would be a problem for me. Upright freezer work great for me but it can still get cluttered.


I think the biggest problem would be finding containers that have handles so you can maybe lift it out to get to the second layer.

No two families will be storing the same types of food so maybe look at several YouTube videos and maybe take a section from each one.
