Do you have any particular way you store things in your freezer? Do you have a system for locating the food?
I clean out my freezer at least twice a year and rearrange, so I'll know where certain items are. I put all like items together, with veggies on one side, meat on the other and fruit, etc in middle, with store bought & boxed things in baskets. I have a deep, very large chest freezer but I would love to have an upright also. When I recently cleaned out my mom's freezer, i put some boxes in bottom, upside down so she wouldn't have to bend over so low to get things. I also drew a chart and taped to the wall above her freezer to let her know where things were. She had stayed for me for almost a year recovering from an illness, so when I took her home, I decided to clean out her freezer(which probably had not been done in years!!) I really threw away almost anything questionable and my brother took 3 large garbage bags to local landfill to dipose of.
