Freezer Inventory: What Is It?

A Freezer Inventory is a complete list of various food preserved in a frozen state in a freezer.

Alternate Names:

  • Freezer Inventory Sheet;
  • Freezer Inventory List;
  • Freezer Inventory Chart.

Whether you are managing a cafe or you want to keep track of all the food you keep in your own freezer and make sure you and your household do not have to buy extra items or throw away expired leftovers, it is necessary to conduct an inventory count. You will be able to reduce your expenses since no food will be forgotten in one of the freezer drawers and save time knowing what ingredients you have available and what should be bought for a specific dish.

How to Keep Track of Freezer Inventory?

Here are some tips that will help you to organize your freezer better:

  1. Organize the freezer properly. The food should be divided into categories - meat, dairy, seafood, store-bought frozen meals, etc. Make sure the items about to expire are readily available if you have several boxes or jars of the same product. When you are arranging the freezer, make notes of all the items you have - this information will be put in the inventory. The list may be required to feed your family or the guests of the establishment you manage - based on the experience you already have, calculate how long will certain items last and think about new recipes you can add to your repertoire.
  2. Work on the Freezer Inventory Chart. This simple document will allow you to prevent waste and stop worrying about dinner plans. Draw a table with the following columns: the name of the item, the quantity, and the expiration date. Once you enter all the data you have acquired while examining the contents of the freezer, use highlighters and markers to point out the items that should be cooked first. In case you are not the only person using the freezer or you want to expand the menu and improve your cooking techniques, the inventory may also refer to the proper way to thaw and cook the food you have at your disposal. If you are in charge of drafting a Freezer Inventory List for a restaurant or cafe, add your name and the date you have described the items in the freezer at the bottom of the page.
  3. Consider making two identical copies of the Freezer Inventory Sheet - you may keep the electronic version of the document on your computer or phone so that you remind yourself what to purchase ahead of going to the store or placing an order with a supplier and print out a table to put on the freezer or on the wall next to it. The latter sheet can be updated every time you are taking a specific item out of the freezer - and later you modify the list you have on your electronic device.
