    Hi, this is my first post-been reading for a few hrs (love the site) today the manager of the apt came by to do inspection- I've lived here six yrs and today was the first time that he told me that I had to get new parts (the door section- the armbar that goes from side to side) it's been MIA...
  2. Frugal Recipes, Leftovers, Budget Meals
    The "Little" amount of leftover refried beans that no one was eating for lunches in the fridge became 6 bean burritos for the freezer. I'm betting the 6 frozen burritos that they can just pop in the microwave will go fast.
  3. Home Environment
    I have a mini fridge that was used for storing essential oils for over a year. I want to use it for something else now, but after over a month of not having EO's in it, and standing open, it still smells strongly of its former contents. I tried closing it up with baking soda, and with coffee...
  4. General Chat
    Absolutely no way to fix it -its dead:( Soooo....we had to buy a new one - no escaping it - gggrrr. We found one that uses only $41 a yr electricity and was on sale - saved $30. I'm thankful that we have an EF...but I really hated having to get into it b/c I dread having to build it up...
  5. Home and family challenges
    My snow day plans were to bake bread but Greebo brought home a fresh loaf from the local pizza place last night (he is so thoughtful) so my new plan is to: CLEAN MY FRIDGE! I challenge you to do the same today. :)
  6. Meal planning
    I'm due in about 2 weeks (same days as Nuisance!) and am wondering what to have on hand in the fridge for very quick and easy meals or snacks that we can just eat without fuss when we have a chance. I'm thinking making up some chicken and tuna salads, yogurt, bananas, slicing up some veggies and...
  7. General Chat
    When we got up here to our cabin, the fridge wasn't working. It is only 14 years old (I think that's young!), and DH did his best to fix it, but it is caput. So--reluctantly, we ordered a new fridge. I say ordered, because we don't have electricity back here, and have to get an LP running...

    I made a soup today using turkey kielbasa. How long is it safe to retain the soup in the fridge for? Thanks!

  10. Question and Answer
    That would be my fridge/freezer. Did I ever tell you that Maytag sucks!!! Years ago it used to be a good brand but not so much now. Our heating/cooling friend said it would die out soon and tried to fix it. Why does it seem that old appliances can last for years upon years. Our fridge is...
  11. Food challenges
    Our 20 year old fridge is making really ugly noises. DH warns me it is only a matter of time before the compressor goes. So my challenge for November is to use up as much of this stuff as possible to make the transition easier, since our garage freezer is full and can't take this lot. Much of...
  12. Home Environment
    How often do you do a total empty and scrub-out cleaning of your refrigerator? As often as you should, or only when you notice you can't get the milk out because it's stuck to the shelf?
  13. Kitchen Basics
    I just opened the fridge door and decided to count. I counted 29! Is this necessary? So many mustards, jellies, salad dressings, bbq sauce, vinegars, salsas, soy sauce, sliced pickles and sandwich pickles and sweet pickles, relishes, mayo and miracle whip, even Hooters dipping sauce. Gah! How...

    ~My new fridge! The first fridge I've ever bought actually. This house came with a mid-90's fridge and we replaced that with a smaller fridge from my mom made in 1999. But it has been leaking water for almost a year now, things don't stay as cold as I'd like, it's only 14 cubic feet and I got...
  15. Home and family challenges
    This has to be one of the most detested cleaning jobs I have. (I'd rather clean the toilet than the fridge because it takes less time!) The reward is a beautiful and sparkling fridge. I found this link that I thought looks very helpful...

    Can I just share how happy I am over our new fridge? It got here today and I'm happy for a few reasons, it's bigger than our previous one and for the first time in a LONG time we paid cash for it and didn't put it on credit! It's stainless steel, with 2 doors and I can put so much more in...
  17. Just Tips
    so we all know how much electricity these fridges are eating up...but they only 'use' electric when they are actually running (cooling down)...so i thought what about this to keep them colder thus running less....thus less electricity used....thus LOWER electric bill....on and on..... i keep...
  18. Question and Answer
    On another post, I was talking about going Back to Basics, and realized that as I cook more from scratch and whole foods my fridge has become strangely bare. I'm curious what everyone else has in their fridge/freezer! It might be interesting from a frugal perspective, but also any regional or...
  19. Just Tips
    They will last longer if you put them on the counter turned with the stem area down.
  20. Meal planning
    I'm not so good at this. I'm a planner, I like recipes. Hubby on the other hand is excellent at this an does this for lunch quite a lot. It is nearly shopping day again ( we are trying to stay out of the stores except for the assigned shopping day) So the fridge and pantry are seeing better...
