What Is the Best Way to Store a Bag of Ice in the Freezer?

Good Questions

Q: What is the ideal way to keep a bag of ice in the freezer? I don't have an ice maker and prefer store-bought ice cubes to my ice trays. However, I don't enjoy chipping pieces off of the clump once it's frozen together. Any ideas for storing store-bought ice in the freezer?
