I always put a description, the weight and the freeze date near the top of each package with permanent marker.
I store them standing up in rows in the downstairs freezer so I can see what's in there without too much digging.
I try to keep the older stuff on top or in front.
I take a trip to the downstairs freezer at least once a week and move what I'll use that week to the upstairs freezer, picking from the oldest first.
There's been a lot less waste since I started doing this.
