Bulking up

I have been wanting a chest freezer for forever. But at one point, we were living in an apartment that didn't have space for one, so there was no possibility. And then we moved into a house, but again, no good place for one because the layout was.... strange(and no garage). And then we bought a house, and there was a garage, but the house needed a lot of other investments more pressing than my desire to have a chest freezer and freeze tons of things.

But then here I find myself, in a house, with enough space, with a garage, and not needing to spend money on this house because we rent it. And just last week I was looking at chest freezers online, but they were expensive! Well, I guess expensive is all relative, but they were more than I wanted to spend on something that isn't necessary, but would just make my life easier. Then on Friday night, while at dinner with friends, they mentioned they had just left Sam's Club and bought a chest freezer. Well, don't ya know, I hadn't even thought to check Sams' prices.

It ended up being a decent price, for a big enough freezer(7 cubic feet). And it's surprisingly not heavy, so I could unload it myself. And so now, hooray, I have a freezer in my garage!

The thing that makes me really excited is now I have the space to make meals in advance and freeze a bunch of them without having to keep a really small rotation. And I can also make a pilgrimage(the closest one is 2 1/2 hours) to Trader Joe's and stock up on a bunch of stuff for quick meals(like their frozen pizzas, heck yea!). And this will make my life so much easier when it comes to meals. Really. It will. My head is just spinning with ideas. Yay!!!

Yes, I know this makes me a big dork. Oh well.


  1. Congratulations on your new freezer! We have loved having one and I'd be miserable without it!

  2. Yea, I imagine it's one of those things that once you have one and get used to, you really can't fathom how you did things another way! I'm looking forward to joining the ranks. Ours is all cooled down and ready to go!
