Who hasn’t filled their fridge with so much stuff that even a grape couldn’t fit inside? I seem to run into that problem quite often because I don’t have a spare fridge to throw my excess in. To make up for the lack of space, I either throw things in a cooler and store it outside during the cold days in the winter or I dump things in the freezer.  This plan may work for some food and drinks, but it’s not a good idea for everything you consume.

What You Shouldn’t  Store in the Freezer:

*Eggs in their shells will crack and that could breed bacteria inside

*Potatoes, fresh fruits and vegetables, rice, and pasta will become mushy when they thaw because of their high moisture content

*Milk and soft cheeses in the freezer will cause the liquid and fats to separate, creating a chunky texture. It’s perfectly safe to drink and eat though

*Don’t ever defrost meats and then put the unused portion back into the freezer unless you cook it first. Dangerous bacteria could form
