We bought a refrigerator!

We have been saving for a long time to buy a new refrigerator.. We are currently about $300 shy of having the amount we need. Well.. we were at Home Depot looking at a refrigerator we liked, and they told us they were having a 20% off special, that was ending in the next couple of days (We wouldn't have the rest of the money until NEXT Thursday) So we talked it over, and decided to charge it all on our credit card (that we JUST paid off...) Then when we get home, we'd transfer the money we already have saved towards the card, then next week pay the remaining balance off. *sigh*...

We don't even have the stinkin thing yet either.. they said they have to order it, and will be delivered to us Monday (a week from today). I'm gunna try to post a link to show the refrigerator we picked out...(i've never posted a link before.. so we'll see what happens..)

Maytag 22.1 Cu. Ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - MBR2256KES at The Home Depot

Good for you - on posting the link. And good for you on your new purchase. But now you'll have to re-do the whole kitchen!!!

Very nice fridge! We have a bottom freezer unit too. Enjoy your new fridge.

Bottom freezer for the win!

lol... We're actually about done remodeling it... The refrigerator and the stove are our last things. We've replaced the cieling fan, and light fixture above the sink. Torn down horrible tile from the walls, put up dry wall and painted. Replaced the border above the cabinets. Got a stainless double sink with new faucets. Put Fermica (sp?) countertops down. Sanded, and re-finished the cabinets. Bought a stainless dishwasher. Put down ceramic tile (tan tile with horrible BLACK grout... that was dear sweet husbands idea.....) So now we're almost done, Thank the Lord!..... next is the bathroom...

Oh boy. You picked the two hardest rooms. But it will be downhill after that. Good luck.

But you did it the right way BC... you saved up for it and didn't use credit. He may be choking on it right now, but he'll be alright.... rather than owing 2x the amount on it in 2 years.

Smile Love your new refrigerator!

WOW!

I live in a one-bedroom apartment. I'd love to have a refrigerator like your new one with the bottom freezer.
