Either finances or space?

I'd love to have a built in oven with a counter top stove. However due to space, it's not possible. I love built in ovens.

I want a counter-depth side-by-side refrigerator. The counter-depth ones are about $2k and I don't have the money this year. I'll probably have to wait until next winter before I've saved up anough money.
The fridge I do have is an el-cheapo one that was even on clearence. At the time we bought it, we had been without one for about 2 months. We used the garage....thank heaven it was winter. :)....and I'd also stick the often used stuff out on the back deck. :)
Anyway, I won a $500 spa trip and they gave me the cash since there were no participating spas in my area. Woo Hoo!! So I used $200 for the fridge & the rest went to groceries. That ws a tough time in our lives.
So, now, that fridge is about 5 years old & freezes all the produce & eggs. The stuff in front doesn't keep as cold as I want. I want to buy a new one, but I refuse to do it on credit.....unless we're desperate again....even then, though, we made it before.

So, hopefully next christmas time I'll be able to get one.

built in dishwasher. I'm very thankful for my portable model on wheels, but I'd love to just have it in one place.

Two things.
Kitchen Aid mixer. No room for one, as I have no counters :(

And a new fridge. The one I have in my kitchen is a DEEEP (Jamee, mine's *at least* counter deep) side-by-side and I HATE IT!!! I can't find anything, I can't fit anything in it. I just hate it. I'd love to have one of the refrigeraters that has the fridge on top w/ two doors and the freezer on the bottom that's a drawer!

A built in dishwasher, no room in my kitchen for one even though it is huge I have 5 doorways. :(

Heck I'd settle for a portable one, but no room for that either. LOL

OOOOH! Kathy!!! I may have to revise my "wish"!! Wow!! Those are cool!!

Heather....that's why I want the counter depth one. I don't *want* it so deep! :) The one I want is a GE profile & it doesn't stick out past the counter. It's like 24.5 cuft, so it's still big....just not deep. :) The standard ones would stick out at least 6 inches past my counter & I need the walk-thru space. :)

We don't have a deep freezer yet for financial reasons ... have to pay some other stuff off first.

A kitchen aid stand mixer and a panini press. But I won't get them as I don't want my counters to be cluttered.

Toaster oven - I don't have the counter space
Bread maker - I don't have the storage / counter space
New stove - I only have 2 burners that work and the oven is not calibrated right. I obviously have the room but I can't justify the $$ when this one still "works" . .

Why not repair the stove? A repair man can recalibrate it

Mine would be a new, larger refridgerator.
When we bought this house, the sellers left their fridge and I just can't bring myself to spend money on a new one, although there were only two of them and for a family of 4, it's just not big enough!!
Waaaaaa!!!!

If I don't say it at least a half dozen times a week, someone else does, "This fridge is just *toooo* small!!!"

Oooo, and a stand mixer!!! Yah, that would be good too!
