    I use black stockings the most...... Oh sorry wrong forum
    No I mean I don't stock up. I just buy say ten film at a time and use them.
    I do have a freezer dedicated for the purpose and it contains films given to me, filmtypes I havn't got around to use and ods and ends.

    After ordering the film I have recently, I need to get a small freezer to put on the porch. My husband is tired of having film in the refrig/freezer.

    The bag of fixer contained sodium diacetate. You can buy it from places that sell spices and other condiments. It is what's used on salt and vinegar potato chips. It can be used as a convenient source of stop bath.

    Darkroom fridge with crisper drawers full of Agfa 120 film (B&W), shelves full of Agfa chems, beer on door racks. Freezer in barn full of sheet and roll film. Freezer in garage full of paper. Doesn't everyone live like this?

    My wonderful wife has been very patient so far. I'm keeping a couple of bricks of APX25-120, a few hundred sheets of APX100 - 4x5, a whole bunch of Ektachrome 64T - 4x5 I use for one particular client, a couple boxes FP4 5x7 for pinhole, and a couple rolls of Plus-X Aerographic film I bought on sale for reasons I haven't figured out yet, maybe I'll cut it in lil' strips and make 10,000 x 17.5mm rolls for a HIT camera someone gave me...

    I have about 200 rolls of tri-x between 35mm and 120 I stocked up when the "old TRI-x" was discontinued a couple of years ago because I did not want to test for a new develpment time (I only use one film for the same reason, and TRI-X works for everything that I photograph). Although I shoot 90% B&W, I also have about 40 rolls of Fuji Velvia 50 ASA. I just purchased them when I heard that it was discontinued. All of my film is kept in a freezer. My position (I could be wrong) is that film stops aging when it is frozen. So, I don't even look at the dates. I usually shoot a test roll out of a sealed brick. I've never had a problem with out of date film. If I were actively buying film now, I would never buy less then a box because I like to have the same lot #.
    Often wrong, but never in doubt!

    I've never seriously stocked film - I shoot it as fast as I get it. But, with the way things are going now, and the fact that I can buy very little (only B&W) locally, I guess I need to.

    I have a 23 cubic foot chest freezer stocked regularly with 4x5, 5x7, 8x10, 11x14, 8x20 and 12x20. I plan to get another chest freezer when the TMY is shipped. The numerous cases of 8x10, 10x12 and 20x24 Azo are in the basement where it is cool.
