Your freezer will run more efficiently, using less electricity, if you keep it as full as possible. When there isn’t enough food to keep it full, add bottles of water to fill the empty spaces. The frozen bottled water will also help keep food frozen longer if there is a power outage. And in a true emergency you’d have some extra stored water to drink.
You can reuse milk jugs or plastic soda/pop bottles after cleaning them. Just leave some room at the top of the bottles for the water to expand when frozen.
Quick, easy, cheap!
