Me too. I get a 10# bag of chicken legs for $5 or $6. I separate the thighs and package separately, I put drumsticks in a sandwich size bag until it's full. All in dinner size packs.
I once had a roommate who "helpfully" put the entire 10# bag in the freezer. I didn't notice it until I had a 10# block of ice to thaw before I could process it.
I always separate my meats into portion size packages first, that way I don't have to thaw more than I need.
