Went refrigerator shopping today. We want a nice one, but are trying to keep it around $800. We went to the Sears scratch & dent outlet and a huge local appliance warehouse. I tend to not like the side-by-sides as much as the ones with the freezer drawers on the bottom, mostly because I feel like the side-by-sides are too narrow on either side. But I am pretty much open to either type.
It seems like our price range dictates that we either get ice/water on the door and get a side-by-side, or we get the freezer drawer type with no ice/water on the door. Decisions, decisions! We found a really great Kenmore side-by-side at the Sears Outlet for about $650 (original price was $1100)! It had the slightest ding on the front, but you really had to know it was there to see it. That was probably the best bargain we found. I would post pics, but fridges kind of look the same. At least, I started to feel that way after all the shopping we did today...
On the way home, we checked another thrift store. OMG! Junk! And everything was filthy. It made Goodwill and Salvation Army look like high-end palaces! It was not a total loss though...the thrift store was next to a used furniture store, so we decided to check it out. It was like a cross between an antique store and the furniture section at Salvation Army. I LOVED IT!!! I'm so glad we found this place. They even had a section in the back where everything was 50% off. We found some Ethan Allan armchairs for $60! And some other random cool stuff. We didn't actually buy anything, just browsed around, but we will DEFINITELY be back.
