shopping for first freezer- advice?
I am about to purchase some frozen beef from a rancher friend, so I need to buy my first freezer. I am posting here, because I assume that most of you own a freezer in order to do OAWC. I would like to incorporate a bit of that myself once I have available freezer space to do so.
Does anyone have any recommendations on size or type? My husband wants to go with the smallest that will accommodate the quarter of beef that we are getting, which would be about a 7.5 cu.ft. freezer. I think that is too small and want to go larger. Do you all wish that you had more freezer space available? I would like to freeze leftovers and stock up on grocery purchases when on sale, etc. I have a family of 5.
