I know - too exciting!!

my mother used to have big thick plastic sacks in different colours but I can't find any in a cursory search of amazon

is there a more modern way? it is a smallish size one and I've identified 3 themes - frozen fruit, meat, emergency pizzas etc.

Badly
I was thinking of defrosting ours today and trying to sort it somehow

I just brought more baskets. I put 4 on the bottom then stack 4 more and use the ones that "hang" that came with the freezer for stuff I use regulary.

I've just defrosted mine and measured it so am now looking for suitable baskets/ crates to make most of the space

Where can you buy new baskets? Ours came with two tiny paltry ones and as a result is very hard to organise.

I try to keep each category of food in a bag for life, I still end up having to remove several bags to get what I want but its quicker than removing individual items.

Like your mum, I used to use big rubbish sacks.

Which reminds me - I need to sort out my chest freezer before the Christmas shop.......grin
