The night before our long ailing fridge finally bit the dust, and we set off to purchase a new one.
Buying a new anything is a very big deal in our house, since we are super bit cheapskates, and we have this commitment to by debt free, so we never buy anything without a lot of hand wringing and saving up.
Thank goodness for all of that saving up, we were able to go straight out and buy a new one for cash. I even got to have a stainless steel door, which makes me really happy!
The old fridge had been going steadily downhill for about 2 years.
It would drip water into the crisper and freeze up, so that once a week Rolf and I would have to take everything out and defrost it- even though it was a frost free model.
It kind of sucked, ruined a lot of produce, and generally made everyone irritated.
So this was a very big deal, which involved Freyja, sobbing that she would miss the old fridge, and demanding to pick out the new one.
Before everything was all cleaned up, there was this big pile of crap on the counter, from all the stuff that was in the fridge. Who knew so much could fit into one refrigerator?
YIKES! We do enjoy our condiments.
