Is there a keezer build guide that stands above the rest? On average how many corny kegs will fit in a 7.1 cubic ft freezer such as this one?

> I'm not saying your wrong (you probably are not if it's reasonable), but there would be some point where you bought too much, even at a discount. The money tied up in food is now idle. It could be working for you, earning interest or buying something you need more immediately. There's an optimal frequency and inventory level for every consumable item we buy and it's based on more than the bulk discount.

To function as you'd suggest, it would cost me more in time spent in stores than it would in the cash value of the food at the level of waste I have IRL. Just fyi.

I value my free time at $20/hr. Two trips a week instead of two trips a month is ~$80 in added time costs a month or ~$960/year.

I don't waste $960/year in food due to bulk buying. Most of my food waste comes from either:

A) Experimenting with food recipes and not liking the results. (aka learning)

B) The unexpected.

Similarly, $1000 for a freezer is o.O. A chest freezer with 7 cubic feet of capacity is like $250, new on Amazon, or like $50 on Craigslist (used).

That thing can hold ~100 lbs of frozen meat / vegetables easily. A few bags of rice that last months. And that is all the bulk buying you really do that isn't like soda or beer or whatever.

I'm honestly not sure where you get your numbers from but the "discount" for bulk frozen purchases is frequently as high as 33-50% the smaller units and the electricity costs are negligible. (~$130 a year, including purchase/replacement cost every 5 years)

Not bulk buying would cost me ~$1-2k a year. Even if my food waste is 25%, $1k on a $4k food budget is $1k vs. ~$1-2k. That doesn't even factor in the fact the cost in my time is higher than the cost of food waste cost so I'd simply break even and save time.

The chest freezer takes up a corner of the garage that wouldn't be used except to store more crap anyway and has a negligible footprint.
