In with the new

We bought a new refrigerator today. Our current one is 20 years old. I've never been able to open the door all way (tight, cramped space) and take out all the drawers to clean it completely. Most importantly, we can't seem to impress upon Gideon how very important it is for him not to "adjust" the controls. We decided it's time.

The new fridge has french doors that we will be able to be opened completely and the temperature controls are at the top, (hopefully) out of reach. I figure this purchase will pay for itself in non-spoiled food savings.

In between price comparison shopping, we ate lunch at a restaurant across the street from Sears. The waitress asked if it was our first time there and it was, so the manager came by with a box of muffins to show their appreciation. We're going to eat them for breakfast tomorrow. I'm not a religious scholar, but think there's a passage in the bible about God helping those who purchase a new kitchen appliance.

So, did you buy it at Sears? Did you get the maintenance warranty? This kind of stuff is very important to me. Just curious.

Yes, it was the same price at Home Depot, but Sears had a rebate on home delivery and installation. And yes, we got the warranty -- considering we have our little mister fix-it living here.

One warning, Reb. We have a refrigerator with the French doors, too. There is very little clearance between the shelves in the main fridge and the shelves on the doors. If the compartments for fruit, vegetables, and cheese are not completely closed the refrigerator door can remain ajar. At least, that's the way it is on an LG.

I'll keep that in mind Helen, thanks.
