I love my chest freezers.
I hate my chest freezers.
I know – this love/hate relationship thing can be confusing – but seriously!
I love the space they offer which allows me to stock up on things when they are on sale. They also give me ample room to store our home grown chickens, pigs and cows, and all of our home baked goodies.
But then again – I hate how much space there is!
I’m always losing things in them. You may remember that just a few weeks ago I cleaned both of them out and discovered all the frozen bananas.
After that incident, I thought I had the freezers all sorted and organized.
But this morning I went down to find a pork roast that I had just put in a few days ago – and I couldn’t find it.
I had to dig down deep, moving large chunks of meat and a variety of home baked goodies, and even a few bags of frozen bananas.
I felt like I needed to call one of the kids to hold my feet – or tie a rope to them so I didn’t fall in and get lost forever among the frozen rhubarb and blueberries.
It’s so bad that my kids act as if they are being banished to Siberia when I send them down to the freezer to find something.
But – no matter how frustrating they are to sort and keep organized – I won’t trade them for anything!
I’ll just make sure to wear climbing gear before I enter their deep dark recesses!
