I've always envied people who can buy food in large quantities when they are on sale (i.e. who have a freezer). Well, after I saw this ad :Canadian Tire - product detail
I decided that it was possible to have a freezer in an apartment. It is really fun, even after just one day. A local store was selling prime rib roasts at 60% off the regular price - 2 are now in the freezer! The same with 1/2 price pork ribs and calamari. I can imagine all kinds of fun in the future!


edit: the link doesn't seem to go to a freezer at all and requires one to fill in a postal code. (I hate these sites that want to find out all sorts of things about me so that they can send me more junk) I gather that the chest freezer I saw after typing "freezer" into the search window at http://www.canadiantire.ca/ is what you were looking at, MEF. -llizard

Not that a small chest freezer might be considered junk. This is a very interesting idea to entertain... I've often thought it might be a good idea to have a small freezer separate from the refrigerator.

My link takes me right to the Canadian Tire description; does this depend on the browser?

It probably depends on the cookies. If you clear your Canadian Tire cookies and go to the link, I suspect that you will be taken to the page where you have to enter your postal code.

Having a freezer with only 3.6 cubic foot capacity may not sound like much, BUT, it's fabulous. Whenever I spot something at a ridiculously low price, I simply get more then we can possibly use at the moment. In terms of energy, it consumes a paltry 215 kWh/ year!
