It's cold in here now that is...We got a new refrigerator/freezer! When Jake bought the house five years ago the appliances were included, and they lasted for us pretty well, but slowly and surely they are starting to not work quite as well. We had to replace the stove last May because the oven stopped working, and recently the fridge gave us a little scare. Even though it started working again and has stayed very cold since, we decided it was time to move on. So, we went shopping. We did a little online research before leaving the house, but we're pretty tactile, so the best way for us to find something we like was to just go out and look. We checked most of the major retailers in the area, and after coming home to do some more research and look at the reviews of the ones we liked, we ended up with this guy:
We also got a great deal on our fridge. It was on sale for $384.99, $165 off of the regular price of $549.00. And if we are able to sell our old fridge on Craigslist for about $100 or so then that means we only spent $284.99! Not too shabby for one that was pretty much comparable to our old one size-wise, and we really love that the shelves and drawers are clear so that we can see everything we have easily and won't accidentally buy something that we already have and waste food.
I feel kind of sorry for the old fridge though since it's still living in the house for now, it kind of reminds me of the swiffer mop commercials.
Our old fridge is looking sadly upon the new one and singing "baby come back". Can't you just see it? No? Maybe it's just me.
So that was the frigid excitement happening in our house recently, but we'll be back to working on the backroom soon. We'll do a progress update a little later in the week.
