No garage or utility space - I've got a small shed that is overflowing with gardening gear, lawn mower, and other stuff I can't keep indoors. No power to it either, and in too much of an awkward location to run a permanent supply to it.
Booo! Have to get rid of the dishwasher then! 🤷🏻‍♂️

A freezer is just the right size to fit in that space 😇

We got rid of ours years ago, with a tumble dryer taking its place, far more useful!

If you don’t have one, you’ll just have to move to a bigger house 🤷🏻‍♂️

Dishwasher? We've got two dishwashers in this household, and both of them have got 2 arms & 2 legs! 🙄😂😂😂

Sandeel now For se Ray me and mate buy live in bulk the freeze down till spring then it will be peeler and rag for hounds and plaice My mate had traps the rules being your not aloud to sell any of the crab pulled from that stretch if anyone caught doing so bye bye traps then the macs will show and it will be fresh Mac and fresh blacks for summer till beginning of winter we have a guy who pumps the blacks up country the. Couriers them down kick ass on most specis off chisel thru summer till autumn bream plaice gurnard cod hounds trigger at sole sometimes fable with a bit of razor for tipping rag for bream but these are the main baits ps it depresses me if I have to buy mackerel as much prefer to catch and freeze depends on how good the seasons been orso take gar for whiteing in winter they love it 👍

No nearly all the fishing near me is for carp anyway. I am about an hour and a half by auto route to the closest sea fishing area.
We signed up to the Anglo Info web site for ex-pats some years ago, and I think I've seen some fishing threads on there.

You need one that runs off a usb and a power bank. ;)

What is the issue with non human food going into the deep freeze?

Slim upright freezer. Not enough room in it for stuff we want to freeze or buy so she says, so I can't see me stealing space for an amount of Mackerel, Squid, Worms and whatever other frozen bait you care to name. It's a woman thing, like it's OK for her stuff to be tucked in every nook and cranny around the house, but if it's my stuff, it goes under the general heading of 'junk'.

Yep I’ve got the bottem tray on the freezer as long as I keep it clean wife’s got no issues with it
Our bottom tray is full of delicacies like Bacon, Gammon steaks, Kebab meat and Merguez, mainly mine!

I once had a dogfish jump out of the fridge and land on the spaniel 😬😬😬
I read somewhere that somebody had a Dogfish jump out of the fridge a full day after they had put it in there. Their nervous system can twitch a long time after they are dead apparently. :(:(

I know exactly where you are coming from.
