One thing a long time rancher taught me was to buy "Non frost free" type of freezer. In combination with food sealer bags some food will last years.
Frost free freezers have heaters in the walls that cycle to keep ice from forming, but it also dries everything out (freezer burn) in the freezer. Had a box type for years but I did switch to upright because of forgetting what was buryed below the first level. Bonus is non frost free are usually cheaper at Homer and Lowes.
