Some reptile keepers have a separate small chest freezer to keep their frozen rodents in.

To help keep them further separated from human food items you could put the paper bag of plastic packages of rodents into a snap top plastic box such as a Rubbermaid "Freeze And Serve" container, or something comprable. It might even help to keep them fresher.

On the other hand, you need to find out if the keeping of frozen rodents is even legal in your location. In some areas it is illegal to have rodents in the freezer, leading to charges of animal hoarding; with the fact that they are intended as food for another animal being considered irrelevant and ignored. I could go to jail if the authorities were to learn of the frozen rodents in my freezer (I should just get rid of them since my snake won't eat them anyway).
