Lordy, what a pain this has been.
The good news: I got a 7 cu ft upright freezer for only $25 off of Craigslist.
The bad news: It took me three hours to get those damn shelves out of the way so I could use it. And I only moved two out of the three shelves so far. Not to mention all the cuts on my hand. I just plugged it in ten minutes ago so I'll see if I did any irreparable harm to the lines in an hour or so.
I wish I wasn't so poor so I could buy exactly what I need.
