How many Fridge/Freezers in your home?

I was wondering how many fridges/freezers one has in their home? I have two fridges and one freezer.

For a two person home, I think having 3 is overkill for us. I would like to get a nice standing freezer and eliminate the fridge I have in the garage.

We have two of each, but we also have two kitchens in our house.

Oh I forgot about a few. My daughter has at least three play kitchens downstairs. Should I count those?

When all 5 of the children were at home Buck and I had one 33 CU foot freezer, another 16 CU foot freezer and a large refrigerator with a large freezer on top. Those were just about adequate for the amount of food that moved through that house.

Now that it's just the two of us, we have one 22 CU foot freezer and a large refrigerator with a good-sized freezer on top. We also have a refrigerator at our shop, for which the freezer part is used for storing frozen whole meals. Right now there are about 18 full meals stored there. It's handy to have to keep extra beverages, too. I also have all my holiday and other candles in the refrigerator. Our house isn't air-conditioned and the heat plays real havoc on any candles, no matter where I try to store them.

When our 33 CU foot freezer died, we knew we should get a smaller one. We considered another 16 CU foot one, but opted for the 22 CU foot one. That was a good decision. The smaller one would've been much too small.

At the time we decide to close our shop - probably many years down the road - we will definitely keep an auxiliary refrigerator somewhere else at home.
