Thats what I'm doing right now, I've got two freezers, moving stuff around to make sure the older stuff gets eaten first. and to make space for a Donald Russell order thats due 25th Feb.
I found a few UFO's as well. Not quite sure what to do with them either.
I started using those re-sealable freezer bags I date the item and write what's in the bag now. That makes a BIG difference. Especially since you can pack them flattish depending on what's in it.

Are we all food hoarders? I know I only have to see a 'bargain' to buy it. Have had to seriously restricted my access to DanApFd. I am thinking of stopping his emails to me as I confess 'I am a sucker for a bargain' and there are some great ones there. The only supermarkets near (15miles)are T's and c**p. L**ls is in a different direction and means an extra 30mile drive. Buses not an option unfortunately as I have a free bus pass.
I have oodles of space so storage isn't a problem. We have a large house (5beds) and there's only the 2 of us. Also we used to have shop and I can now fill all those shelves with 'my' stuff. My OH says there is more there now than when shop was open!
12 people turn up unexpectedly - No problem! Could probably feed them the a month; only need to buy milk and fruit. How bad is that?

I also do this, but I buy the cheapest food bags I can find, put whatever inside, then I put that bag inside a zipock/sealable bag and put a small piece of paper in between the two bags with (I keep all junk mail I receive that is blank on the back for this purpose, and also for writing shopping lists on) for example, 200g Chicken Breast diced 26.1.01 written on it.
By doing this, I always know what's in the bags, and how long they've been in the freezer. Double bagging them also helps stop them getting freezer burn, although that's not much of a risk for me, as because I put the date on everything I freeze, I rotate my stock by putting the most recently purchased underneath what has already been purchased and frozen. Value/Smart Price food bags are as cheap as chips, but are very thin, so when I've used them once I throw them away when I defrost whatever is inside them, but I reuse the ziplock/sealable bag.
It will rise to 1.40% from June
