Do you take your refrigerator for granted?

The next time you go searching for a snack, take a moment to ask yourself how you would fare (pun intended) if your cold food storage unit suddenly decided it was too tired to keep its cool any longer. Do you have a cooler large enough for the basics? What provisions are you going to lose because a cooler is smaller than a fridge? How long does it take to get a new fridge delivered? In my case: No. A lot. 4 days.

On the positive side, I got a 10% discount on an Energy Star unit, can apply for a $125 rebate for replacing the old one, and should start having a lower electric bill each month. And I never really liked the fridge that came with the house anyway...
