Small fridge for a small house
I got a small refrigerator-2.7 or 3.7, somewhere in there-yesterday at a garage sale, and am pleased with the purchase. If it works out as well as it may, I might not ever want a full size fridge again. I enjoy grocery shopping, prefer everything fresh anyway, and really only need a refrigerator for milk, yogurt, condiments, and leftovers usually. Freezer space is a little more difficult to manage. I love a large freezer, and mine’s usually full to overflowing with bargains. The fact that I forget them until freezer burn sits in makes me think the smaller freezer won’t be such a bad thing, either.
In other news the owner of the house I was going to buy has signed a release of contract. That’s a relief. I didn’t realize that if the realtor isn’t really good, a buyer may be stuck. A buyer can’t really do inspections prior to an offer, but after an offer has been made if the proper contingencies aren’t written into the contract, the owner can sue if the buyer tries to back out, in addition to keeping the earnest money.
I will be very, very careful if I ever attempt to buy another house. More than likely, though, my next purchase will be the land I hope to build on unless the perfect cabin comes up for sale in the perfect place. I guess I’m slightly strange, but I like the idea of owning a piece of land. If I have land, I have a small means of providing my own food, whether that be a garden or chickens or an orchard or some combination. Without land, I don’t feel truly self sufficient. Guess it’s the country girl in me… or maybe the pioneer blood.
