Middle-Aged Excitement?

We need a new fridge.

We've been looking for a while now, but have yet to agree on a model.

On Friday, instead of going to an outdoor antique market, in the rain, we opted to do our shopping indoors.

And we found a fridge!

Finally.

Finally, a model we could both agree on.

It is a Samsung with the freezer on the bottom, but in this model instead of a big drawer in the freezer area, it has lots of small drawers similar to what you get on top.

And the doors are split on the bottom as well.

Yay!!

Wrong.

It's too big.

It's an inch too tall and an inch to deep to go into the space in our kitchen.

Now we have to decide whether to wait to see if Samsung comes out with a smaller model or go with something else.

Dagnabit!

The sketch above was done from memory and then details added from a photo I took with my cell phone. The verbiage was suppose to be much, much different.

Rather than write down the info on products/appliances we're interested in, I just take a photo with my phone for later. The solutions signage was actually in the store and struck me as humorous when I looked at the photo because we were so sure we had found our fridge.

  1. Sorry the fridge is too big. That's frustrating. I remember shopping for a new one a few years ago. We wanted a freezer on the bottom and no ice maker. It took awhile, but we finally found one. It was way bigger than our old one and we thought it was too big, but we often fill it with garden produce and/or hunting results. And we were lucky that it fit our space.

    1. Ha! That's another discussion point—ice maker in the door or not. Hopefully our fridge will hold out until we find the right one.

    1. Thanks, Lisa. It's annoying but then, at least our old fridge is hanging in there and we don't have choose.

  3. Sounds like it would have been a great fridge. We bought one from Home Depot online where they would deliver it. This was when we were moving and we planned to be in CA to have our lights and water turned on and so scheduled the fridge to be delivered then. The day before delivery they called and said the fridge was no longer available and they would substitute another "of equal value". We were in a tough spot needing the fridge but only going to be there a few days so we said okay. It may have gone for the same price as the one we wanted but only because the one we bought was on a super sale. It is NOT nearly as nice and really very basic. Such a disappointment but it does make lots of ice unlike my daughter's that can't keep up. I sure hope you find another you both like.

    1. That kind sounds like a bait and switch, Timaree! How disappointing. I've heard all kinds of interesting things about ice makers and it seems price doesn't really predict a good ice maker.

  4. Hahaha! Your title made me laugh. Oh what we have sunk to for entertainment. (I remember how excited I was when we redid our kitchen and got a new fridge a few years ago.)

    1. It's kinda disgusting that we were so excited about a fridge, Kelly. I can remember my folks getting excited when they redid their kitchen many long years ago…I feel like I'm in a time warp!

  5. We know your frustration. We finally found a frig we love. It is a Kitchen Aid with freezer on the bottom, french doors on top, ice maker that is not connected yet and the filtered water is on the inside not on the door. Plus it is counter depth. Let me know if you would like a link to see what it looks like.
