Meat shopping probably constitutes the largest expense on your shopping list. You must treat this expensive commodity with care and respect. To save time in future cooking expeditions, it is best to rinse your meats and pack in transparent bags, which you can label. Freezer bags are your best option.
Not only do I label, I date too which helps me keep track of how long meats have been in the freezer and also how much I am spending on meats
See, labelled with the type of meat and dated

Another thing I do is to dedicate a freezer compartment or two for meats. This makes it easier to find, track your usage and also prevent cross contamination. Some people also marinade meat before freezing. It is up to you
