Appliances That Change Your Life: Deep Freezer
This is one of those appliances that are not for everyone, but is definitely is for me! We recently purchased our deep freeze at Costco (they are having a great deal on these until the end of the month). It is a 7 cubic foot deep freezer, which is plenty big for our family. We have only had it a week, but it has changed my life already.
If you haven't already noticed, I am a big fan of having a lot of food around, and being prepared. I also enjoy having easy quick meals to prepare on those lazy nights, and most of these easy meals live in the freezer. I also have a specific brand of sandwich bread I like to buy, which is not sold at most grocery stores. So, when I do get a chance to buy it, I tend to buy several loaves and freeze them!
Whenever I would go grocery shopping I would have to consciously think about the freezer items I would buy, knowing that I may not have room! Now, I have been grocery shopping, and I bought two of everything so I could have extra (and have something to put in my new freezer). My favorite part is I have been making extras of my meals and freezing the extras for future meals. Fantastic!
Oh and if we ever lose power for a long period of time, party at my house!
