    Chest Freezer Organization Tip

    I have a chest freezer organization tip that will save your sanity and maybe some money in the long run too. If you own a chest freezer, you know they are a pain to organize. By pain, I mean there is probably food at the bottom of your chest freezer that you haven’t seen in YEARS. It’s as if someone said, “I’ve got a great idea! Let’s haphazardly throw all of our food into a frozen pit that is so large that we have to bend ourselves in half to reach the mystery meat we stored at the bottom while hoping the lid for this frozen pit doesn’t fall on…

    There are a million and one products you can buy to organize your dresser drawers. I own some of them! Unfortunately, these organization systems are only as good as the person using them. Have you ever met a 9-year-old boy? Organizing is not at the top of the to-do list for my 9-year-old. I’m sure there are 9-year-olds out there who could make Marie Kondo herself weep with joy at the sight of their neatly folded shirts and pants. But again, that’s not my child right now. Maybe someday he will turn over a new leaf and his spouse will thank me for raising him up right, but let’s not…
