Today my family went and picked up a 19.7 cu ft Frigidaire chest freezer for $100. There was nothing wrong with it; it was bought to store lots of meat and the deal fell thru so the freezer wasn't needed anymore. It's almost $600 new and was purchased in 2007. Now I can buy a whole sheep, and fill it up with venison scraps.. all for Amos and Waverli... and maybe a new puppy in the not too distant future. *wink*
Moral of this story- check craigslist daily if you need a freezer!
