3 Important Details to Write On Your Vacuum Sealed Items

To stay completely organized and stress-free about what's in those bags, simply write these three things on the outside:

  1. Contents - Food can change color when frozen which can make it challenging to figure out if that frozen block is chili, veggie soup, enchilada filling or a fruit of some kind. Make your life easier by jotting down the contents before it's too late (and you've defrosted cherries for the evening meal).
  2. Date - While food does last A LOT longer in vacuum sealer bags, you might want to use a FIFO (first in first out) on the meat, veggies, cheese and snacks you are storing. Plus, having the date on the bag ensures you don't eat anything too old for safe consumption.
  3. Quantity - Adding details like 1 lb, 2 cups, or 4 oz makes it even easier to use your preserved goodies in recipes down the road. Measuring out portions is also a great way to stay healthy for portion control with meats and snacks, so keep those M&M's in 1/2 cup serving sizes to keep yourself on track!

BONUS #4: Reheat instructions are handy to write on some items. Put a fresh pie in the freezer with all of the directions for baking it later. Whoever finds it can do the cooking themselves!
