How to use Evernote to organize your freezer

Having a stocked freezer is one of those things that is really important to me – the line however on stocked and ‘I can’t shut the door – seriously, it won’t shut’ is pretty thin.  The problem that I have is Wholesale Clubs – I’m not sure what it is about the 5lb bags of Spinach that draws me like a moth to a flame but I can’t help myself – and I’m not even that huge a fan of spinach.

Here’s how Evernote has helped me with this problem.  You can see in that screenshot above that is my personal Evernote account.  I have a notebook for Food – in it I have a ton of recipes from across the internet that are on my radar and a note called “In My Freezer”.

The note contains the following list.  A listing of the Prepared Stuff I have ready to just bake (I put the reheat directions on masking tape on my pyrex dishes), A list of fruit that I have in the freezer and a list of the vegetables at the ready.  The Fruit and Veggies are basically the MAX capacity for those shelves in my freezer – when I use something up I put a * next to it.  When I have 7 * I’ll start to think about my next trip to Costco….if there aren’t 7 * though I’m not going because I’ll have a ‘I can’t shut the door’ experience and those are not as fun as you’d imagine.

This list has spared me quite a few take out orders, last minute lunches and has saved me hundreds of dollars in Warehouse Shopping (did you know they also have GIGANTIC boxes of Granola bars and Face Wash?).
