Thanks for all your fridge ideas. I checked the prices online, even though several dozen calls to Home Depot went unanswered. To me, a fridge is a place to keep my food cold, and that’s about it. After looking at the prices for the freezer on the bottom, French door type fridge compared to the side by side, I’m suddenly loving my side by side! 🙂 I’ve had a side by side for over 15 years . . not the same fridge, so I’m sure I can make it a few more years with one. I’m not willing to pay that much more for a different model that in the end, really does the same thing as the less expensive model. I can be a tightwad!
Knowing this fridge will get moved at least once, and maybe twice, and it can be the 2nd fridge and not our main fridge once we get a house to buy, spending less is better than spending more. Vince said we may go ahead and get water/ice on the door because when we buy a house, we’ll hopefully have a well and we will drink that water.
There’s a small Sears store in Brownwood and I forgot we’re taking our big freezer so when the moving van gets there Monday, I will have it there to put the frozen food I’m bringing . . which is mainly cherries and peaches out of my freezer and if they don’t make the trip . . well, I wouldn’t have saved them anyway so no big deal.
The house we’re renting isn’t really a rental but it’s a house that’s been completely renovated, is for sale and hasn’t sold so the owner agreed to rent it to us for 6 months. That’s why it doesn’t have a fridge.
I love being able to ask a question and get so many responses. Obviously, most everyone loves the freezer on the bottom and I probably would too but I don’t see us buying one this time.
