I made Printable Freezer Meal Labels that I want to share with you today. I also learned of a freezer stocking method I am excited to try. Read to the end!
I do not often set aside hours to stock my freezer with freezer meals. (This may change now that I see how easy MyFreezEasy makes it. 10 meals in an hour!!) Instead of one big session to stock my freezer, I am more likely to double or triple a recipe and throw the extras in the freezer for later.
When I do set aside the time to do this, I love the rewards! Picking a meal out of the freezer is the best. It’s a good day when dinner entails thawing a frozen meal and throwing it in the crock-pot. The rewards of a well-stocked freezer are real! It saves time, money, and the what-am-I-making-for-dinner headache.

Before you toss the meal in your freezer, you will need to label the meal. It will save you the time of needing to research the directions later. You will have all the details needed when you pull the frozen meal out at a later date.
The labels can also be used if you are giving the freezer meal to someone else as a gift. You don’t want the new mom trying to figure out what the directions are, so make sure you print these labels to tape on the freezer meal!
The labels include a place to write in
- Recipe Name
- Date Prepared
- Number of Servings
The labels will print on an 8.5X11 sheet of paper. You can also purchase sticker paper if you don’t want to have to tape the labels on the bag or pan.
Print the Freezer Meal Labels Printable. The PDF includes both the pink/floral and purple/gold versions.

MyFreezEasy is a membership program where members receive 8 new meal plans each month. The Premium membership gives members access to the “build your own meal plan” desktop app. This is perfect if you want to mix and match the plans and recipes.
The goal of MyFreezEasy is to help members create their own meal plans so they can make 10 – 12 meals for their freezer in less than one hour. It takes a specific type or style of recipe and meal to make that happen. Erin (of $5 dinners) has designed pre-set meal plans with that goal in mind. You will be able to get 10 meals into your freezer without spending all afternoon in the kitchen. Sounds like a good plan to me!
The premium membership includes 8 New Meal Plans Each Month (all plans include 10 meals each):
- Traditional Plan – mix of different types of meals
- Gluten-Free Plan – completely gluten-free including sides
- Slow Cooker Plan – all freezer to slow cooker style
- Clean Eats Plan – all “clean ingredients”
- 20 Meals Plan – includes 20 meals instead of 10: mix of different types of meals
- All Chicken Plan – all recipes use chicken breasts/chicken thighs (perfect for when chicken goes on sale << I’ve seen it as low as $0.99/lb here!)
- All Ground Beef Plan – all recipes use ground beef
- All Pork Chops Plan – all recipes use pork chops or pork tenderloin
I am browsing the meal plans for this month and cannot decide which one to try. I’m deciding between the Slower Cooker Plan and the Clean Eats Plan. The recipes look tasty and the recipes and instructions put together well. The shopping list, assembly prep instructions, and meal assembly instructions are very clear.
The member area also contains a video library, a resource library and a free freezer cooking workshop.
Every day that you pull a meal out of the freezer, you will be thanking yourself for putting in the time filling your freezer. Check out MyFreezEasy!
