If you do put it in the living/dining room then you can get a chest freezer and put a tablecloth on top to make things a little nicer.

We have a 1-bedroom. My baby sleeps in the living room. The dining room is in the front hallway. There are one and a half closets. I have no idea where I would put a separate freezer.

I got one when I lived in a small apartment. My neighbors all had one too. We all kept it in one of the kids bedrooms.
I later needed the space in the bedroom and moved it to the dining room

Yes. We just got one second hand, it's in my living room. Its kind of an eye sore, if I'm being honest, so I try and make sure the top is cleaned off and doesnt become a dumping ground. But the extra freezer space is 100000% worth it. I'll easily make double recipes and freeze one, buy bulk which is cheaper, or even just bake a few dinner done 9x13 desserts one Sunday and freeze.


My mother put plants on top of hers and she covered the freezer door with with plastic photo holder magnets . She has tons of family photos displayed that way.

Yes, it was a lifesaver! When I lived in my one bedroom apartment it was in our bedroom and when we moved to a two bedroom it went to the kids room.

When we first got married we lived in a studio apartment in student housing. We could get some basic kosher products in the local supermarket, but every so often we would drive to the nearest kosher supermarket and stock up on items like cheese, cholent meat, fish, etc. Having an extra freezer to store it all was a lifesaver. We got one of modest size and I also used it as a surface on which to light my Shabbos candles because I had nowhere else to put them.

If you're worried about the aesthetics, I've heard of people who buy chest freezers and cover them with a tablecloth so they can keep them in their living/dining rooms and guests are none the wiser.

If you live in a small space, do you have a stand alone freezer and is it worth it in your opinion?


Yes I have one and it’s the best thing.
I make challis and soups and compotes and purchase frozen goods in bulk. I also buy bulk packs of chicken (cheaper that way) and prep it and bag it per dinner serving.

Yes. Depending on the apartment depended on where I put it. My first apartment, it was in my son's room. When we moved, it was in my kitchen till I got a bigger one, in which case it went into my small LR/DR...now that we are in a much bigger apartment, it's in my 3rd bedroom for now.

First thing we bought. More counter space.
Chest freezer specifically for that reason

And I scratch my head when people comment on a thread that's been done for 3 months as if we were just in middle of a conversation...
