It’s official. Spring is here! We’re inspired to clear out the old and make room for the new. And that means our freezer, too. You haven’t forgotten about it, have you? Why, it’s more than just a chest to hold freezer burnt chicken and ice cream, you know!
Here’s our foolproof guide to spring cleaning your freezer … and stocking it with Wholly Wholesome!
- Take Inventory: First things first. Take a look at what you have crammed in your freezer. Is the homemade soup you made last month still worthy of bringing back to life? It’s time to make some tough decisions.
To toss or to keep? That is the question. Here’s a quick cheat sheet to help you decide:
Meat + Poultry + Seafood
Bacon: 1 month in the freezer
Chicken: 6 months in the freezer
Cold Cuts: 2 months in the freezer
Fish Fillets: 6 months in the freezer
Raw Shrimp: 6 months in the freezer
Dairy + Eggs
Block Hard Cheese: 6 months in the freezer
Block Semi-Hard Cheese: 6 months in the freezer
Milk: 3 months in the freezer
Tofu: 5 months in the freezer
Yogurt: 2 months in the freezer
- Eat, Recycle, Toss: Plan to eat the food that still looks healthy and toss or recycle the food that doesn’t.
Pro Tip: Take a quick look at the food containers and boxes that are recyclable and learn to reduce your environmental impact just by cleaning out your freezer. It’s as simple as that!
- Move It On Up: Now, take a deep breath. You’ve just made major headway! Re-organize your freezer so that older items are at the front and newer items are at the back. Of course, your Wholly Wholesome Pie Crusts will make their way to the front and center, right?
