Oh yeah... but, I do try to either freeze it in the original package (inside a zip lock bag) or write on the zip lock what it is.  I think I've got turkey in there from Thksg but it's buried in the back and I probably wouldn't recognize it.  I remember NOT marking it because, of course.... when I go to use it, I will SURELY remember what it is, right?  LOL

I do what Daisy said: I think for sure I will remember what it is and I don't label it.   Then I have no clue.   I don't know why I don't label and date all of it because I am always grateful when I do.

Of course, but more often it is DH who tosses stuff in there without labelling it!  That is one of the things he is constantly riding his cooks about at work - stuff in the walk-ins that don't have labels with dates. That is a huge health department no-no, but he still does it at home. Makes me crazy. Not that I am perfect, but 95% of the unlabeled stuff is HIS!

I try to label it.  I need to be better about dating them.  Some stuff I don't but it's obviously like when I do my freezer corn and green beans.

Oh way yes, I have. My freezer is just a big jumbled mess, I really need to clean it out and organize it. But yes, there are some unrecognizable items in there!!!!

I'm sure I have done this at some time, but I am really good about labeling and dating everything.  And the freezer gets cleaned out every Labor Day weekend. Now, some stuff I put in there gets forgotten and never used.  Most of that is bread products.  And of those, hamburger and sandwich rolls.  

I don't know why I am so good about this task and not at all organized about the rest of my house.
