Seeds should never be stored in a freezer - it's far too cold for them. Instead, place the packages of seeds in an air tight container and store them in a cool, dark place. Use an old mason jar or mayonaise ja,r and screw the lid on tightly. Then put it in the back of a closet or similar place where it will stay cool. Don't forget to make a note on your calendar where you've hidden them so they'll be easy to find next spring.
