Ya'll know how much we rely on our freezer for Shelf Cooking! With a large family and a huge belief in prepping freezer meals ahead, we have MULTIPLE freezers in our household! It seems that the kids haven't been securely closing our garage freezer's door, which has led to some gnarly freezer burn and even a little thawing of the ingredients in the door. *cue the tears*

The ice buildup was so heavy that I couldn't even pry some of my meat off of the shelves! It's time for a MAJOR FREEZER CLEANOUT! Come with me in the video, and learn some of my favorite tips for cleaning out a fridge or freezer:

My family lives by the Shelf Cooking method….meaning we grocery shop frugally, buy things on sale, stock up when it makes sense, and meal plan based on what we already have! That's where a freezer comes in…..

Buying items when they are on a great sale only works if you're able to store them safely or use them before they go bad! And you'd be DANG SURPRISED at what ingredients actually do well in the freezer! For instance, did you know you can freeze citrus fruits? Cheese?? Avocados???
