Neither can I. I'm like a kid in a candy store!

My mom always told me that if there's a snowstorm outside, as long as you have plenty of food, you're ok.

That's the idea!

So let hubby complain all he wants to. He'll get over it and will soon come to realise that he married a very smart budget-minded lady!

Both freezers are REALLY filled up now! Just put some more food in them.

Here's a twist; Had to put a piece of duct tape on the refrigerator's freezer door because packages were making it pop open!! Got up to go get some soda and found the door open. The food had started thawing out!!!

Over to the chest freezer; had to put some small bags of leftovers in there, but the lid just wouldn't close all the way. It was slightly ajar. So I just hauled over one of the heavy stand mixers and plopped it on the freezer to add some weight and keep the lid down and closed completely. Problem solved!

Didn't have to lower the temp in either one.

Freezer manufacturers recommend zero. That's what I've always kept mine at. No matter how full it is, it still should be set at zero. The freezer just doesn't go on as often when it's full. If you can't keep a full freezer, then fill some plastic gallon jugs with water to keep the unit from using too much power by going on often.

Also, the fuller the freezer, the longer it will hold the cold air in if there is ever a power outage.
