I'm only 5 minutes away from ours. I'll keep that in mind in the future.
There's an easy way to control food from spoiling in your freezer.
I pack my chicken, beef, pork, fish etc separately and label them with date and contents. When I do my monthly shop I unpack everything that's still in there and pack the newest purchases at the bottom and older ones on top. That way when I take something out I know I'm taking what needs to be used first.
If I open something and only use some of it I make sure I seal it well to avoid freezer burn.
