My grandmother used to freeze fish in water and said it tasted fresh when defrosted. It takes a bit more room but she always had good fish.

Since this thread started I decided to only eat from the freezer until I had it down to a managable level. We've been eating a lot of chicken, ham and hamburger. It's still pretty full. However, it's been saving on my weekly food bill!

we re-stocked so there's 4 or so boxes of pierogies, i'm freezing leftover broth from a roast beef tonite, there's potstickers, gorgonzola gnocci, cheese ravioli, pork, & veggies too.

I have kind of been dreading getting a chest freezer because I just know that eventually I'll end up accumulating mystery meats and UFOs (Unidentified Frozen Objects) that I'd have to toss out.

So right now I have two upright fridges:

The top freezer of the first fridge is reserved for neutral-smelling items:

Ice creams
Springroll wrappers
Frozen berries

My other fridge is a side-by-side double door. The freezer section is organized by shelves/drawers into:

Frozen homemade baked goods
Frozen home-cooked food like stews, spaghetti sauces, etc.
Frozen home-made pesto, shawarma sauce, etc.
Frozen veggies
Store-bought processed food like sausages, fishballs, etc
Poultry (whole, marinating parts)
Seafood (soft shell crabs, New Zealand mussels, fish fillets, cuttlefish, shrimp)
Pork (various parts)
Beef (various parts)

This way, with one look at my freezers, I can do a quick inventory before going on a replenishing run to the super.

-fruit (strawberries, pineapple, peaches)
-1/2 gallon orange sherbet
-1/2 gallon sugar-free chocolate ice cream
-part of 1/2 gallon sugar-free chocolate ice cream
-1/2 gallon butter pecan ice cream
-chicken breasts
-ground beef
-lunch meat (bologna, ham, turkey pastrami)
-wheat english muffins
-1/2 of a lemon tea cake
-2 or 3 pineapple crumb bars
-soft pretzels
-lumpia (from a neighbor)
-2 supreme french bread pizzas
-small package of shrimp
-2 frozen bananas

coming back to add... I forgot something.. a small package of mozzarella cheese
A little kindness goes a long way.
