Hey all!

So guess what? I bought a new refrigerator!

When I bought my little house four years ago, it came with a massive refrigerator-for-eight. My house is only 690 square feet and not only did my refrigerator eat up 11 of those square feet, it was right in front of a south-facing window. Who does that besides a landlord? Previously my house was a rental so the appliances and hardware was the cheapest mish mash the landlord could round up. I live alone so having such a ridiculously huge refrigerator was far too big. It was loud, ran day and night, heated up the kitchen, and was a constant source of soft ice cream and frozen lettuce. I immediately pulled it away from the window but it took me this long to save up to replace it.

The beast was far too big. I took to keeping canned goods and things that didn't need refrigeration in it. My food would get swallowed in it. Nothing looked appitizing and it lead me to shop like I was still feeding a husband and teenagers. A lot of food rotted and just the fact that I hated my refrigerator made everything in it look unappetizing.


I don't know if you know this but there is a world wide refrigerator shortage going on. I had to wait almost 2 months for mine to be delivered but it is here now. It is only 5 feet tall and it's foot print is only 4 square feet. I used the extra room to put a small table in my kitchen for morning coffee.


It is small, only 10 cubic feet, but as big if not bigger than I need. Everything in it is visible. Nothing is hiding and rotting without me knowing about it. Switching refrigerators meant one last decluttering of my food. Those jelly jars with an inch of 2 year old jelly are GONE! That maple mustard that I never liked is gone as well!!! It is so lovely to open my refrigerator and see all my lovely food choices without all the little piles of guilt and procrastination hanging out between the food.

(I just now realized how weird it is to take a picture of the inside of my frig and uploading it to the internet. I feel a little exposed like having some one judge my grocery basket. That heavy whipping cream is my 1T drizzle for my daily oatmeal. And that bacon is organic turkey bacon, I SWEAR!)
