A little over a year ago, we purchased a small upright freezer. Our main reason for buying it was to freeze some of our farmer's market produce to enjoy over the winter (I enjoyed a lot of good, local tasty things over the winter). We also like to make lots of casseroles ahead of time for quick dinners later on.
As you can guess, I am also one of those people who also buys in bulk when there is a sale. With a small freezer (energy star of course!) we can freeze groceries purchased on sale. Like Boca Burgers- I really like them but they are pretty expensive. When my grocery store had a sale (1.50 less than usual), I paired it with a coupon and voila: half price Boca Burgers...bought four and loaded them into the mini freezer.
It seems that this is becoming less of a "frugal" person's practice and more common place. The Associated Press reported a 7% rise in the sale of individual freezers. Even manufacturers are redesigning refrigerator/freezer combos with larger freezer sections. The article also said that about half the households in the US have a supplemental freezer...who knew?
Do you have a freezer?
