This is our freezer
A chest style 7 cubic feet model, bought way back in our childfree days for about $200.
It was adequate for our needs in those days and for many days after then. But for the past couple of years there has been a problem.
You can’t find a damn thing in it.
No matter how I arrange things, they still have to be stacked on top of other things & sure as anything what I need is all the way at the bottom so I have to take EVERYTHING out and remove the item I want and then put EVERYTHING back in it.
And I have to inventory it every 3 or so months because I have no idea what might or might not be in it due to my inability to remember to mark things off the list when I take them out of the freezer or add them to it when I buy stuff.
This coincides nicely with my need to defrost it so it all worked out.
Plus if we got a new fridge, in the style I want, we’d have slightly less space in it’s freezer.
It wasn’t that big of a deal though & it had only occurred to me once to even price freezers ($400-500). I’m focused on a fridge. Not extraneous appliances.
But as DH is already watching Craigslist of a few other things ($500 cars so he can do this) he added freezers to it. Eventually he came across an ad for one of appropriate size (14 cubic feet) and location (near his job) and price (under $100).
It’s 14 cubic feet. Supposedly
I guess I need some under shelf hanging baskets to really make the best use of those cubic feet. Because even though it looks like the shelves are adjustable, they aren’t. They are screwed in place.
But I can see at a glance what I have in the freezer & that is a vast improvement.
I did find a new fridge on sale. But it’s an on sale because it’s being discontinued so you have to buy it without seeing it in person model due to there not being any within 100 miles of me & I’m just not at all sure about that.
