I do this with all store-bought meat I get. Whenever chicken or ground beef is on sale I buy a few packs. But the packaging they come in takes up a lot of extra space in my freezer. I always transfer my meat to either freezer bags, ziplocks, or even wrap them in plastic wrap. This creates a better seal and uses less space in your freezer. Another advantage is you can divide your meat into smaller "portion sizes" for easier thawing and consumption.
