"New Purchase"

Last week, our 12 year old refrigerator's condenser decided it didn't like working in "full mode" any longer. So things began to defrost in the freezer and warmed up a little in the main part of the refrigerator. We've had the repairman out before, but this time he didn't really suggest fixing it. So weighing the repair bill of $700 against buying something new and more efficient, we went the new route and went shopping last saturday.

Our new stainless steel Maytag, French Door, bottom drawer freezer arrived yesterday. We think it is beautiful!

I'm sure I will be re-arranging things in it for awhile until I come up with the best storage for me. As you can see (beer selection on upper left hand shelf), Don has made sure we are ready to begin our weekly Friday night happy hour, "if" the weather is nice enough tomorrow. We've not begun them yet, as I was sick when we had the unseasonal warm/hot weather.

A freezer drawer. Hopefully, this means no more hidden and unused packages. ;)

Think back to the refrigerators of your youth. Those of us "of a certain age" can attest that things have changed a "wee bit". ;)

Awesome! And don't count on loosing track of "stuff" in the freezer. I swear everytime I clean the freezer out and purge all the small packages that I won't let stuff pile up again, It does help to tape little tags on things with dates and whats in there. So that 3 weeks later you sort of know whats what. AGain congrats on the beautiful frig!
