Be sure to read my previous posts, Refrigerator Organization Part 1 and Part 2!
Is your freezer a big mess? When you reach in to grab something, do you wonder what it is and how long it has been in there? Help is on the way!
First things first, your freezer should be set to 0°F.
I once had an argument (spirited discussion?) with someone who insisted that the freezer could be set at 32°F because that’s the temperature at which water freezes. I guess that would be fine if all you stored in your freezer was ice, but the freezing point of many things is lower than 32°F, which is why my ice pops (sugar water) were still liquid in the 32°F freezer.
Even if food freezes solid at a higher temperature, keeping your freezer at 0°F slows the food’s deterioration so much that it can keep for months or even a year (though taste might suffer).
Unlike the fridge, which requires good air circulation to maintain temperature, the freezer likes to be full. All those frozen-solid foods packed together help the freezer stay at temperature more efficiently.
To get the most out of your freezer, you’ll want to create zones for different types of things.

I'm so sorry your fridge stopped working! Appliances just aren't built like they used to be. If you're in the RI area, I highly recommend S&W Appliances.
