How many refrigerators do you have?
My grandmother in Oregon had an extra freezer in the garage. I could be wrong but I think she used it mostly when all the family was in town.
My parents have had an extra freezer off and on. But I personally never have. We've lived in apartments that don't have room for anything extra.
Here in Mississippi, it is almost a sin NOT TO have an extra freezer! You have to have room for that doe or two, deer or rabbit, room for the pork, or even for those amazing sales from Piggly Wiggly!
