Freezer Went Out--Lost Everything

One of the disadvantages of our family's shopping stockpiling is that we eat many frozen vegetables, juices, meats because of our gluten-free diet. We bought a new freezer two years ago and have a second used one in the garage.

Today disaster struck, our Newer Freezer...the one we put the meat and veggies in went out. Everything is thawed. We just lost about 1/4 of a cow, and everything else.
Tuesday is garbage day and it will all leave with the trash. We probably lost over $800 to $1000 worth of frozen groceries.

The only good thing I can think of is that once we get it fixed, I will have plenty of freezer room to freeze the vegetables this summer.

Sometimes things like that are covered by your home owner's insurance. It might be worth checking into, depending on your deductible...

I am SO sorry, that's terrible. I also wanted to second the suggestion to check your homeowner's or renter's insurance. Many policies cover losses such as this one. Good luck!
