One of each. And a kegorator.
Otherwise I wouldn't have any room for food in the fridge

I only have one fridge. It's pretty big - 26 cu - but I would love to get a separate freezer. I do have another fridge in the guest house but I don't use it except for stocking it when I have guests. (I'm afraid I would forget about what's in there.) Since everyone seems to have freezers, any input on the chest vs upright issue? I have room in the basement for a freezer and I think an upright would be space saving. I'm also worried people would stack stuff on top of a chest freezer. But I've heard that a chest freezer is more energy efficient. Any recommendations?

Chest is definitely more efficient. We had one at my parents house growing up and yes things tended to get stacked on top. Also things tended to get buried and forgotten about. I like them though and would love to have one. I just do not have the need for a third freezer right now though.

Don't I wish. No we have an upstairs kitchen and one downstairs. The people who had the house before us built it with the intension of moving their elderly mother down there so it is set up to be a full apartment on it's own, independent of the rest of the house. There is a kitchen, full bathroom, and separate entrance that goes right out to the swimming pool.

I have the top freezer fridge and a separate deep freezer (chest).

Both freezers are used for long-term storage.

I agree with GB on the chest freezers. They are hard to organize and when you finally get a wild hair to clean one, you find stuff at the bottom that you have no clue what it is or how long it has been there. I would rather have a standing freezer.

We found wedding cake in the bottom of my parents freezer long after the marriage it came from had ended

That is pretty neat, I can see where having 2 kitchens in the house would have it's advantages.
