It wouldn’t matter if we had a dozen freezers (we never will), they would stay full.
It is so nice to open a freezer without standing back hoping a frozen 10 pound roast doesn’t fall out on your foot. It was really nice to buy a Thanksgiving turkey earlier this week and not have to worry about finding a place to put it. By this time next year (next month probably), it will be a different story, though I’m really trying to do better.
Chad and his family came by this afternoon. Addie looked around and said “Did you bring EVERYTHING from your Texas house?” . . meaning . . you’re going to clutter this one up too! I said “No, Sweetie, this is less than half of what was at the other house. The rest will be here later. I’m not sure she understand “half” and that there’s more to come but we moved on to something else.
One more thing about the freezer – we always buy manual defrost freezers. I try to make meal plans for a week at a time, open the freezer once and get out what I need for the week, put that stuff into a fridge freezer, thereby not having to open the big freezer any more than necessary. We keep ice cream and the stuff we access often in fridge freezers. Less opening means less frost means less defrosting.
