Are you maximizing your garage space, or are there areas going unused and underserved? We know that most garages aren’t making the best possible use of the many storage areas in every little nook and cranny that can exist, and we believe that everyone should think a little more rigorously about how to make the most of their existing space.

There are many action items to pursue when thinking about reorganizing and maximizing the storage space in your garage. You can start with basic decluttering and making room for your cars, power tools, and other large and essential items.

You can put all those loose papers and nostalgic items in folders, filing cabinets, and boxes for safekeeping so that they’ll stand the test of time. Or, if you’re anything like us, you can think about getting yourself a garage freezer!

Do You Need a Garage in Your Freezer?

Are you someone who will benefit from a garage freezer? Consider some of the benefits you could attain by installing one today.

No more weekly grocery trips – With a dedicated garage freezer, you won’t need to restock every single week on frozen vegetables, frozen pizza, ice cream, frozen berries, frozen ready-to-eat meals, and any other typical grocery store staples that you and your family enjoy. You can just double or triple up on items and trust that they’ll be around exactly when you need them.

Bulk purchasing – Say goodbye to getting one of everything and say hello to discounts and coupons! With bulk purchasing as a new possibility, you can save on all your favorite items, access deals that you might have been missing, and make sure that you always have more than enough to eat.

Meal preparation and storage – With a garage freezer for extra space, you can make food ahead of time, perhaps at the beginning of the workweek, and slowly move through it throughout the week or longer. You can also store leftovers that you’ll get to eventually but haven’t found an occasion for yet, getting rid of clutter in your in-kitchen freezer and freeing up space for food that will be eaten more readily.

For these reasons and so many more, getting a garage freezer could radically change your daily and weekly routines, freeing up time and space while decluttering and restructuring your household. Convinced yet?

Top Styles and Brands of Freezer

With all of the incredible options on the market for a freezer from luxury brands, you’ll have your pick of the litter, no matter your budget and logistical preference. Large upright freezers are always a safe bet, but you can also opt for a freezer chest or a portable freezer. Freezers also come in a wide array of sizes and shapes, which will help you to pin down a freezer that can fit right into any little corner of your space, rather than fitting your space around the freezer.

What’s an upright freezer?

An upright freezer is a freestanding freezer that has one door that swings open to the side. It is a standalone product with several shelves built inside. Upright freezers come with all kinds of finishes and special details, so you can personalize and individualize your selection process to find an upright freezer that will blend right into your garage.

What’s a chest freezer?

A chest freezer has a drawer that opens from the top of the freezer, and chest freezers will typically have 20% more usable space than an upright freezer, preventing potential freezer burn and keeping food longer lasting in the event of a power outage that could ruin the food stored inside.

A portable freezer is always an option for garages that don’t have enough space for an entire standalone appliance. Still serving the basic function of an upright freezer or a chest freezer but without all the bells and whistles, a portable freezer is a great down-to-earth option that is simple and affordable while still being practical and easy to use.

Top freezer brands for 2021 include such nationally recognized brand names as:

● Frigidaire

● Arctic King

● Maytag

● Midea

Keep the Freezer Maintained

With your freezer in place, all set and ready to freeze, you’ll want to make sure you’re not actively wearing away at your brand-new purchase. That means that you’ll have to regularly remember to clean the freezer and defrost it at standard time intervals to make sure it doesn’t reach the state of the photo above.

The usual time interval for defrosting a freezer is once yearly, so it’s worthwhile to put a reminder in your calendar so that you don’t forget to perform this essential task. If the ice slowly building in the freezer ever reaches a thickness of a quarter of an inch or more, it’s time to give the freezer a good defrosting.
