It is most unfrugal...

...when the freezer pops open, no one knows about it...and everything thaws out. Of course, this is the old fridge where I keep my meat to make more room in the freezer half of the fridge upstairs. At least I was running low so there isn't a huge loss. But it's still money down the drain. I can't remember when I last was down there, but it's been a few days and I'm about the only one who uses it. Stupid thing must have popped open. The waffles are okay, but I can't take a chance on the meat. Damn. Oh, similar tales have been told. http://inashoe.blogspot.com/2006_06_01_inashoe_archive.html I think there's a story about freezers over here, but I can't find it. Whoever it was that blogged this, she has a bunch of kids and if anyone uses the freezer they have to call a witness to prove they closed it. But we don't have that many kids and we're all on different schedules...so no one is home half the time to bear witness. I think I'm going to keep the meat upstairs and the cheap stuff like vegetables downstairs from now on!

I remember reading that witness story too. We had a similar problem with our freezer door coming open. My husband put an extra clasp type lock on the side of it that holds it closed. Haven't had a problem since!
Too bad about your spoilage...

Hmmm...a clasp lock. Something to think about!

Its usually been my kids. Keeping it out in the hot garage doesn't help, either. As it takes, like, 45 minutes to melt the entier motherload of ice cream sandwhiches I have squirrelled away in there!

The freezer witness was my story, and the funny thing is I was thinking to myself as I read your post, "I know that feeling - I just blogged about it a few weeks ago!"
