If you pump and freeze, how do you organize the frozen milk bags in your freezer?
I EP'ed so i had a massive freezer stash. (i.e an entire deep freezer of milk)
I also donated a lot of milk- so i definitely know how to organize milk.
freeze milk in bags- lay flat to freeze. WRite date on it. Group frozen milk in large ziplock bags- date the outside of the bag with a #1 (2, 3, 4) and the last date of milk inside (Nov 3)
So when you go to use it- you use the first bag going in, and then subsequent bags as you need.
someone posted this awhile back and I thought it was extremely clever.
(i do the ziplock storage though, because I have a huge stash stored in the deep freezer.)
I write the date and amount on the outside of the bag, then I use old wipes containers and just put the flat bag on the top, that way i know the oldest ones are at the bottom of the wipes container. I also have more than one container, so i've written "1" on the first one, "2" on the second one, and so on.
a very clever thing I saw was using old gift bags and cutting a slit in the bottom side of the bag. that way you can deposit the newest storage bags on the top, and pull the oldest out of the slit in the bag. I may convert when my stash gets bigger and i can't fit any more containers in my freezer!

I just watched this. I think cereal boxes would work as well and might stand up better than the gift bags.
