Freezer Organization

We have an extra refrigerator in our garage.  We use the freezer to shop sales on meats, store "cook ahead" frozen meals and to generally keep overstock items.  I try to keep the things I use frequently in my kitchen refrigerator, but I continuously found myself digging through the garage freezer.  Often times after the dig, I would find that the item really wasn't in there.  This wastes time, energy and could be very frustrating. 

I needed an inventory system.  I had been to Staples and found these great Dry Erase Decals:  Martha Stewart Home Office™ with Avery™ Dry Erase Decal Gray Border, Flourish,

I decided to put one on the fridge and list everything that was in the freezer.  At a glance I could at least see if what I wanted was in there, before even opening the door.  Once something is taken out, I just erase it with the magnetic dry erase marker/eraser.  After I did this, I discovered, since I have a white fridge, I could just write directly on the fridge, but decided the decals looks a little better, and the writing might stay put better.
