Have you ever contemplated putting a second freezer in your home? Well, consider this blog as a sign that you should go for it.

So, all of you moms and dads, grandmas and granddads with big families, and all you hosts, hostesses and party planners who often have family and friends over, listen up. There are quite a few reasons you might want to have two freezers — especially during the holiday season — and we’re here to lay out those reasons for you. We have a sneaking suspicion that shopping for a second freezer will turn out to be your most successful kitchen hack yet!

Living the Good Life with a Second Freezer

1. A second freezer allows you to stock up. If you have a big family, you probably already know the drill: You’ve got to stock up and store as much of everything as possible in your freezer. And during the holiday season, that need to stock up is only heightened! If you don’t have a second freezer to store everything on your grocery list, you’ll be making more frequent trips to the grocery store. Instead, with the addition of a second freezer, you can simply run out to the garage (or wherever). You’ll be back in action in no time, and you won’t lose precious time hustling back and forth to the store. A second freezer provides the perfect solution to eliminating those last-minute runs.

2. A second freezer provides more storage, opening up more space in the kitchen freezer. Leftovers. We all know how much can be left after a huge holiday meal — and no one likes to see extra food go to waste. Casseroles, meats, cheeses, sides, pies . . . often, there’s enough left for another feast! That’s when you run into that traditional post-holiday problem: a freezer stuffed with Tupperware® containers and foil-covered dishes. Instead of shoving all those leftovers into the freezer and hoping it doesn’t all come crashing down the next time you open the door, get a second freezer for additional space and storage. Now you’ll be able to make your way through those leftovers at your own pace, while keeping your main freezer for other post-holiday meals.

3. A second freezer makes cooking sooo much easier. The trick to working well in the kitchen (especially during the holidays) is being as efficient as possible. It’s hard enough being head chef — so why let an overwhelmingly cluttered freezer slow you down? An additional deep freezer makes for a great solution, especially when you want to freeze some of the everyday goods in your fridge to make room for your holiday staples. With this strategy, your backup supply and less essential foods will remain comfortably out of view, freeing up your mind to focus on the holiday and family.

4. A second freezer provides safety for your family during emergencies. It doesn’t occur too often, but freezers can fail. Life definitely happens! Especially during the winter storm season. Instead of letting an electrical failure ruin your holiday or family-meal plans, plan ahead and shop for a separate freezer. In the off chance that you run out of luck with your primary freezer, you’ll have backup grub ready to save the day. No one wants to order food for an entire extended family at the fast food drive-thru, just because the freezer conked out at the wrong time!

To sum up:

We want you to enjoy the holiday season! We definitely know all the cooking, prepping and baking that comes with having the family visit.
