I've had a small Sear's 5.1cf chest freezer for 15 years which has been plenty for two people. Indeed, I find it's easy to forget what's at the bottom, so I now use plastic bags and write on them with permanent marker what's in each: burger, steak, etc. I've had stuff go bad from freezer burn, so now try to order a little more often. I clean it out once a year, and reorganize: writing down a list of everything in there so I can keep up with it all. You want some room for broth, and such, too.
This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Any given day you are surrounded by 10,000 idiots. Lao Tsu, founder of Taoism
