6 Benefits of Owning a Second Freezer

September 02, 2020

Have you ever considered buying a deep freezer? If you've already got a fridge with a sizeable freezing area, putting money into an additional freezer might seem unnecessary. While it's true that deep freezers contribute to additional energy costs, they provide a number of benefits that could save you money—and time—in the long run. Depending on your lifestyle and cooking/eating habits, a deep freezer might be just what you need.

Leftovers for days

Do you tend to cook more than you or your family can eat? Deep freezers offer the perfect solution. Instead of balancing amount and space in your fridge for leftovers, simply store all of them in your deep freezer. This saves you the hassle of trying to make just the right amount of food each meal and avoids any risk of waste. 

Sales, sales, sales

Going into a supermarket and seeing our favorite items on sale is a joy we all know. Unfortunately, we need to limit ourselves on how much we purchase. Not so with a deep freezer. While there still remains a space limit, it's substantially more than your fridge/freezer combo. This allows you to take advantage of more deals, saving you more money in the long run.

Buy in bulk

A general standard across most consumer goods is the more you buy in bulk, the more you save. This applies to food as well. Many frozen goods, including meat, drop in price significantly the more you purchase at once. With a standard fridge, we sometimes lack the space needed to take advantage of these savings. A deep freezer provides a convenient option for stocking up on bulk-packaged items.

Meal planning and prepping

For those of us who enjoy cooking (a lot), being able to prep multiple meals and have them on standby is appealing. Normally we're confined to the space our fridge provides. With a deep freezer, our options increase significantly. Even the budget-sized freezers offer enough space to store a week's worth of meals—or more. Preparing a large amount of meals at once helps save on ingredients now, and time in the future. 

Garden Storage

Zucchinis. Did you shudder? You know all too well, then. You don't need to plant multiple to get a full harvest. Now let's say you did harvest plenty of zucchini, as well as other fruits and veggies. Your new deep freezer will provide a nice place to store all your garden goods, ready when you need them for jams, jellies, salsa, and more.

Shop Less

The biggest time-saver on this list is shopping less. Stocking up on bulk, taking advantage of sales and discounts, and prepping meals in advance all reduce the amount of time you spend shopping. With an ample food storage, you'll also be more likely to avoid emergency stops for forgotten ingredients and items, saving you money as well.
