9 Organizers Under $25 That Will Completely Change the Way You Use Your Freezer
Prepare to save space and prevent food waste with these clear bins, reusable bags, stackable ice trays and other clever freezer organizers.
I don't know about you, but I frequently forget to clean out my freezer. (Which is probably why my husband and I still had leftovers from our wedding a whole year later. Yikes.) It's almost like unless I'm grabbing ice cubes or looking for a power bowl for lunch, this space simply does not exist in my mind. And it always shows in the form of forgotten boxes and freezer-burned cartons.
Well, no more. This year, in addition to reorganizing my refrigerator, I'm straightening up my freezer. Whether you're in the same boat and trying to prevent food waste or have a ton of leftovers and need more storage space, you've come to the right place. Scroll on to see the best freezer-friendly organizers and accessories you can buy right now, all for less than $25.
Bring order and uniformity to your freezer (and breathe a sigh of relief every time you open the door) with these coordinating, clear bins from iDesign. The narrow openings keep contents upright and easy to access, while built-in dividers let you separate frozen meals from desserts.
And if you have a freezer drawer? You can achieve the same pristine look with these all-purpose bins by The Home Edit. Integrated handles make it easy to pull the containers out and fill them with frozen meals, while their removable dividers help you separate items as needed.
Freeze and stack smoothie ingredients, leftover soups, stews and more with these reusable half-gallon bags from Stasher. We love these silicone containers because they come with a convenient pinch-lock seal, stand up on their own (on the counter and in the freezer) and because they're dishwasher safe for effortless cleanup later on. And did I mention you can even write on them?
Make reducing single-use plastic easy with these reusable toxin-free silicone bags perfect for packing lunches, freezing foods, sous vide cooking and so much more.
If you're an overachiever at making dinner and need help organizing all those leftovers, I suggest you pick up these erasable food labels. The two-pack set comes with 140 stickers, plus two markers and two erasers. And best of all? The labels work on plastic and glass containers, so you'll never have to guess the expiration date on any package.
You wouldn't believe how much space you can save just by switching to stackable ice cube trays. See for yourself and snag two of these covered containers. Each holds up to 21 ice cubes and comes with a lid to prevent spills and allow for easy storage.
If you're not using ultra-slim ice packs, you're doing it wrong. Thanks to their sleek square shape, these ice packs take up barely any space in the freezer and can easily layer between items in your child's lunchbox to help keep their food colder longer.
Have a new baby at home? You'll definitely want to grab these BPA-free food storage containers for their favorite purees. Push-on, leakproof lids help keep their food fresh in the freezer and prevent future diaper bag disasters. Plus, they come with a tray for easy stacking and organizing.
