How to Keep Track of Food in the Freezer
This freezer inventory chart has three columns: One column for the name of the food, one column to keep track of the quantity of that item, and one column to keep track of when you should eat it by.
The easiest way to keep track of your frozen food in real time is to print off this inventory sheet, get a clear plastic sleeve, and a dry erase marker.
Use tape or a magnet to secure the inventory sheet to your freezer door. Keep the marker nearby, too!
When you go grocery shopping, add new items to the list. When you take food out, remove it from the list. It’s as simple as that!
And when you’re making your weekly grocery list or checking out the sales, reference what you already have in the freezer to make decisions about what to buy.
Food Safety Freezing Info
Food frozen at 0°F (-18°C) will remain safe to eat indefinitely, per USDA. However, the quality, taste, and texture of the food can and will deteriorate over time. That’s why it’s best to keep track of when it’s best to eat each item.
