Buying And Stocking A Fridge — 26 Comments

  1. Totally agree with you about having the freezer at the bottom and fridge at the top. Since we went to that style of fridge, we have never been back. We are getting a new kitchen next year and tempted as I am to get a pigeon pair, I think that it’s too much for the two of us and that I will just be tempted to stockpile even more. We will be buying a bigger fridge though as very a very restricted in space at present. Some great tips again for those starting out or moving away for uni etc.

    • Lucky you to be getting a new kitchen! A large fridge is a necessity in my opinion 🙂

  2. Haha… My first fridge was big, his name was Bruce. A total legend he was, didnt matter how much I cooked, he’d store it all for me perfectly. I sold Bruce last year and upgraded to Maverick (I have boy fridges) that is HUGE! Love how organised you are, you can a lot from someones fridge.
    Great post Tandy. 🙂

  5. Your fridge is so neat Tandy! We only have a small space for our fridge and we wanted one as big as we could get. Luckily we found one model that fit!

    • That is the hardest part about a fixed kitchen space. Luckily for me we could design our kitchen around my fridge 🙂

  8. This does help, Tandy! Sometimes we do impulse buying without prioritising the essentials.

  9. Having 2 fridges definitely helps! My mom and dad refused to get rid of their smaller one when they got the new big one. Helps a lot when you have people coming over for a braai, or want to defrost the bigger one. Your fridge is gorgeous! Can’t wait to have one like that one of these days.

    • Melanie, it is not worth getting rid of a fridge if it still works, and you have the space. My old freezer needs defrosting and thankfully we have another fridge / freezer at work as my freezer space is always packed to the max 🙂

  10. My husband and I still have to make our first fridge purchase as we inherited my grandma’s fridge when we bought her house. Totally agree on the free range eggs, pick them up at roadside stands when available. Bacon. Have that cooking on the stovetop even this minute. You’re really getting me to think about the ice maker! We always thought we really would want one, especially when entertaining…..but maybe the space is more valuable.

    • You can buy a stand alone ice maker if it is that important! How amazing that your grandma’s fridge is still going 🙂

  12. Tandy, you a so cute and you always make me laugh. ” I have a small freezer for icecream and vodka, of course…” ha ha ha…Your refrigerator looks massive compared to my apartment sized one. We have to get provisions several times a week here as with 2 hungry teenagers, I can never have enough supplies to hold them for the week.

    • Vodka – or mother’s little helper – is an essential summer beverage 🙂 I am very lucky to have so much freezer space 🙂

  13. Great post for first time cooks and for those stocking a kitchen (fridge) for the first time. I think you won’t have too much trouble cooking out of my fridge or me out of yours:)
