How many times have you packaged up leftovers or some meat you bought on sale only to discover the bag in the freezer a few months later. It’s unrecognizable, unlabeled, and eventually ends up getting trashed. Today I have a guest post from a fellow blogger who has a great resource to share. She’s got a collection of freezer labels that can be quite handy to foodies and anyone involved with meal planning.
Each label template can be downloaded as a PDF and printed out on self-adhesive or regular paper. Since freezing can help people avoid junk food and save time on
preparing healthy meals on busy days, these labels can save you time and money.
We don’t think much about freezers, unless they break and give us a hard time. They simply exist in our kitchen and make our lives easier. But without them we would need to go shopping much more frequently, and we would probably end up throwing away a lot of meat and produce, because it is difficult to predict the amount of food we can eat in a week. So, thanks to freezers we can preserve everything that we won’t be using in the following few days, and we certainly save money and time on frequent shopping trips.
Going a step further in better home organization, a lot of us like to use freezer labels on food packaging. It’s actually not a good idea to freeze anything without a label, because we can’t really remember when we froze all the items in our freezer, and food loses quality and taste after it’s been frozen for too long.
In order to prevent food waste, it is important to label all food packaging with accurate information. People who have a lot of space in their freezer and keep many items in there will benefit from additional information on freezer stickers that will help them categorize food according to type of food, ingredients used, whether it contains allergens, etc.
The following collection of free freezer stickers can really come in handy with food preservation. They are categorized into:
- Frozen meal calendar labels: These are no fuss stickers where you only need to circle the date of freezing and apply them quickly to your food packaging.
- Recipe label printables
- Freezer tags: Recipe and freezer tags offer additional blank space where you can write out more information about the food packaging contents (recipe, ingredients, etc.)
- Special event stickers: Special events category is reserved for labels for food that we prepare on special occasions. This section will be updated on a regular basis.
Take a look at each of these freezer label printables, and find the type of label that best suits your needs!
