The Freezer... Don't judge

Ok I'm kind of embarrassed to admit this, but I actually can't remember the last time I cleaned out the freezer.  I know, that's disgusting!  Now that I have more time at home,  I've made myself a list of a bigger task I want to accomplish each day.  Well today was to clean out the freezer.  And it definitely needed to be done!  I've noticed I've been staying away from buying anything that needed to be put in the freezer because there wasn't any room.  I also realized I had no clue what was in there!  I found a freezer meal I had made back in 2011... just to name one of the expired items that was buried in there.  So judging!  Here is what I was dealing with:
I know, gross!  (I told you, no judging).  To start, I cleaned everything out, I wanted to start with a clean slate.  I wiped down the inside of the fridge with a 50/50 vinegar/water mixture.
I then purchased some nice little freezer bins from Bed Bath and Beyond to help keep me organized.  On the top shelf, I placed the breakfast food and the treats.  On the second shelf there's the frozen veggies and fruit.  I wanted to place them where I could see, and easily have access to them. 
The bottom shelf contains frozen meals.  And the bottom drawer is where I placed all of the meat.  
So there you have it.  A nice clean freezer that's organized!  Its amazing how good it feels to have this task done!
