Now we're gettin' it goin'!
FLOWER POWER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I actually lived on a tropical island during the height of flower power and we had a VW Bug with those flowers all over it! I was in heaven!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I even had beads hanging at my bedroom door - and they would sway in earthquakes and earth tremors

I think he's afraid of that factor - besides, I don't know how to actually utilize a freezer. BUT another refrigerator I know EXACTLY what to do with.
I've never heard of storing newspapers in a freezer but hey..... My oldest sons used to live in the guest house before they moved out. One day I noticed that they never seemed to set out any trash on trash day. I asked them what was up with that and they proudly explained they had figured out that if you put take out food containers and that sort of thing in the fridge, they never stick and don't attract flies!!!!! THAT drove me nuts! But you'll have to join Buddy and me on our search for the perfect yard sale 2nd fridge or freezer.

If we were really lucky, we would show up not long after some occasion that had her making multiple desserts that got stowed in the freezer and had to be eaten.
So that is where she hid all the good stuff. I guess they piles junk on top of the freezer to keep little fingers out of the treats

You laugh, but I recently looked at a condo during my househunting where the refrigerator was obviously spray painted black to match the much newer factory black stove and dishwasher.

Have the standard fridge, upright freezer, and a dorm fridge. Should I count the 2 old freezers DH uses as storage for spare motorcycle parts?!?! How about the fridge/freezer in the motorhome?

I only have one.
I would love to have a single freezer. Maybe when dh can eat again and I'm able to buy good food again, I will get one.

One fridge and two freezers. I prepare things in advance for freezing like lets say prepare over 100 samosas or spring rolls and freeze them.
