My freezer is not very big, I don't need lots of space. These three drawers are fine for me, it has the fridge bit above it, and sits in the corner of my kitchen. It's handy to find things in a jiffy, no searching through piles of rock hard packets, boxes, and bags. No cussing as the item you want is buried underneath mounds of food. No losing things down at the bottom never to be seen again. The best part about having limited space is that you always know what is in there.
I read somewhere that a woman needed to buy another freezer because she was freezing that much stuff for later, she ran out of space in the one she had. Surely there comes a time when you have got to stop cooking and freezing, and start eating. Besides, my freezer only needs to contain about 4 - 6 weeks supply of food, any more than that and there are freezers in shops to keep it for me. When I need something I go and buy it. I am not going to pay for the electricity needed to have a second freezer somewhere else in the house.
I'l let you have a rummage through my drawers. In the first one there is.....
Reduced price organic yogurt 75p
Reduced price small Hovis loaf 10p
Value garden peas.
8 Fish fingers. I don't normally buy these, got them for a change. £1. Added to plates of steamed veg I can get three meals out of these.
2 Portions of salmon. These are from a 6 portion pack for £5, I had a voucher for £2.75p off. More cheap meals with steamed veg.
Mushy peas. This bag was reduced to 50p, found it in Asda, I think they were having a clear out as it wasn't listed as a special offer.
Bag of mixed fruit. I bought last week to try in my smoothies. Not reduced price, about £1.30 something.
Odd slices of frozen bread. If I have bought a lot of bread and have difficulty fitting it all in, I seperate some of the slices into smaller bags.
2 and a half packs of Quorn Fillets. Bought these when they were on offer at £1 per bag. 6 in a bag, again cheap meals with steamed veg. Sometimes I put them in a stew, or chop them up into pieces and cook in oil with onions.
6 Linda Mac veggie sausages. On offer at £1. Three meals with steamed veg.
3 portions of salmon.
