My method of freezer organization has always been “just make it fit.” Most of the time, I throw the frozen foods in and arrange them barely well enough for the door to close. My rental apartment came with an old top-freezer refrigerator that can hold a decent amount of items, but it gets cluttered quickly if things aren’t stacked properly. There’s also an ice maker on one side that further cuts down on available space. But YouCopia has consistently surprised me by providing exceptional tools for organizing spots I hadn’t considered before (a lazy Susan for the fridge, a spice rack that’s its own cabinet), so I decided to give their FreezeUp Freezer Rack a try. Within minutes of opening it, my mess of bags and boxes became a wonderfully organized display.

The YouCopia FreezeUp Freezer Rack is a clear plastic storage rack with dividers that can be adjusted depending on your needs. It’s nearly ready to use right out of the box. Just take the rack out and place it front-to-back or side-to-side, depending on the design of the freezer and the size of the FreezeUp Rack (12″ or 15″). Turned sideways, the 15″ version fits almost exactly in the space between the side of my freezer and the ice bin.

The FreezeUp Rack helped me use my freezer space more efficiently. Now, I’m able to file my bags of vegetables in an orderly fashion instead of having them all fall out of the freezer every time I have to find something. Once I had the items stored on the organizer, I could see what space I had left. There’s a shelf at the top of my freezer that I used to fill with smaller items, thinking that large freezer bags made more sense at the base of the compartment. However, with the rack in place, I am able to store the bigger bags on the top shelf along with other groceries that were too small or not the right shape for the storage rack. In the end, I fit more into my freezer now because it is smartly packed.

Since I began using YouCopia’s FreezeUp Freezer Rack, I’ve been recommending it to everyone I know who’s ever voiced any issues with their freezer. Not only does it help straighten up the clutter, it opens up space that I didn’t even realize I had! Plus, I can actually see everything instead of letting freezer burn take over. Once again, YouCopia for the win.
