Freezer Inventory Spreadsheet

Ok, so I have always had a food stockpile. I have always shopped sales and I hate to pay full price for ANYTHING. One thing I have learned is that "It's not a bargain if you end up throwing it away."

So, in desperation, I asked my dear hubby to create an Excel Spreadsheet for me so that I can keep up with the food in my freezers. Yes, I said FREEZERS. I have a deep freeze, a small fridge/freezer in our basement and a side by side in the kitchen.

The kids hate it when I send them downstairs to find something for me. Many times they return, with frostbitten EMPTY hands.

Now I have my inventory on the computer. I know what I have, how many, and when it was frozen. Then I can plan my meals around stuff I need to use the soonest.
I'll let you know how it goes. I have also uploaded the file so that you can have one yourself. Just delete what you don't have, add what you do have. You can filter it by date, freezer location, alphabetically, etc.

My husband ROCKS!

Just don't judge me by what's in my spreadsheet!

really good idea... often I'm in the freezer for something and come across another thing I forgot all about and think... "man, I could have used this but I forgot it was in there..." so - this will be a good idea for me! ~ kim

This is great! I can't wait to customize one for myself. I'm always forgetting about something that got shoved in the back of the freezer. Thank you!

I would love to hear how this works out for you! I have tried several times *unsuccessfully* to keep a freezer list, but it never seems to get updated as I use/add new stuff...will have to give your spreadsheet a try!

You are awesome, thank you sooo much for posting this. I've been meaning to make my own food storage xsheet and you just saved me a ton of time. 3 freezers?? I'm not worthy! :)

What a great idea! I could really use this, since I make most of our food at home, and it's all wrapped in foil with masking tape labels, LOL!
