This week’s power outages have been a disaster for many people’s cold storage. My street was without power for almost three days…which meant dumping most of the contents of our refrigerators and freezers.
Luckily, I have been conserving money by purchasing only what I need these days, even if it means passing up bulk deals. So my freezer was relatively spared, mostly filled with bread and veggies that made it through.
What about you? Did you have to do a major toss? Do you normally keep a stash of perishables and extra meat in your freezer to have on hand?
