we have a relatively small living space but i really want a freezer to do frozen veggies and meats and stuff
how do i know what size i will need? is the money saved worth the higher electric bill?

You could just get a mini one. But you could buy fresh beef and pig and freeze it for really cheap and keep it in there. So I guess it depends on just how much u wanna freeze in it.

We have a huge one, but honestly it didn't really change out electric bill anyway

i was in k mart a while ago, they since closed and they had a little one, about what i was looking for and the tag had estimated electric bill increase of like 30 bucks, i wasnt sure if the food i would be saving money on would be worth that much, kwim?

That's for the entire year.. That's maybe about $2 a month. The savings of buying in bulk is worth it. I go to a meat market and get meat for a lot cheaper than the grocery

You're welcome. You should look into whether you have a meat market close.
