Freezer storage tip

The freezer part of our integrated fridge-freezer in our kitchen has two shelves and then a drawer at the bottom. The shelves quickly become a jumble of bags of frozen veg and boxes of food. You'd often see me scrabbling around and having to haul food out to find the peas and corn.

So I decided to rethink how I stored them. I recycled three 2-liter plastic milk bottles for the corn, peas and frozen chopped onions.

To fill the bottle with veg I use the little funnel that came with our dishwasher (for filling the dishwasher salt container) - it's perfect:

But if you don't have one, the cut-off top of a pop bottle will do the trick:

Voila - filled with a bag of corn. You want to squish the bag well before opening it, to ensure that all clumps of corn are broken down - that way they don't jam up in the funnel:
