This is our new refridgerator. The electric bill is pretty cheap, but it’s tough to find stuff. We’ve taken a big leap in our going green journey by unplugging our refridgerator last Friday. Tomorrow makes one full week of refilling the “ice box” once a day.
OK, so it’s not really an intentional green experiment. Jaimie discovered last friday that something was wrong when teh ice cream scooper sunk to the bottom of the wells blue bunny pail. Turns out our compressor is shot. The Sears repair man showed up Monday, and the part showed up yesterday. He’s due back tomorrow to fix things up.
The thing is, to my surprise, it hasn’t been that bad. We’re limited on what we can buy, and on how much we can save for leftovers. This means less snacking! It also means we have all the fruit and veggies out on the counter–meaning I’m eating plenty of those food groups. It hasn’t been too painful to drain the water and add some ice each morning. Our egg carton is getting pretty soggy, but that’s about the pain of it.
So–we really could survive without a refridgereator. I’m not about to try to convince my lovely wife we should go for it, but we could. That’s all.
Can’t wait to get my electric bill and compare the difference.
