My Current Dilemma

I've been so busy the last few weeks with school starting up, shopping, cleaning up from Hurricane Irene, shopping, exercising (yes - I've used my treadmill more over the past 2 weeks than I have the past 10 years (I signed up to go to my HS reunion next month!!!) and doing even more shopping that I haven't posted much lately. But now, here is my current dilemma:

Remember my organized chaos picture from a few years ago? Click here for a reminder. Long story short - the freezer has died. It is 24" wide and fits nicely into its current spot. New freezers are all 28" wide and won't fit into that spot. We bought a new freezer today. Needless to say, I have some re-organizing I need to do.

It wasn't worth to get our old freezer fixed. We bought it new around 1993 or so and it wasn't frost-free. So over time, ice would build up and then it would have to be defrosted. But now - the new freezer which I got a great deal on from Sears (had a 25% off coupon plus they threw in an extra 5% off). With tax, it came out to less than $400 plus it has all the bells & whistles. Frost free - now that was worth it in itself!, digital temperature control, interior light - none of which our old freezer had.

But now I just have a bit of work to do to get it to fit in the old freezer's same spot. Stay tuned for an updated "organized chaos" photo.

Don't worry, Atlantic City pics are still on their way. I haven't forgotten.
