The house we're moving into has been completely flipped, which is a.m.a.z.i.n.g. The only appliances it doesn't have are a washer and dryer, which we already own, and a refrigerator, which we definitely don't have and will desperately need.
That in mind, we factored that expense into our offer and have been extra conscious about setting the money aside for it to ensure one could be paid for and delivered by the time we move in.
Starting a few weeks ago we went price shopping just to get an idea and after stopping at a few places were advised to make a purchase Labor Day weekend when it was suggested that the sales would be really good. In the time leading up to this weekend, we did our homework. I know it sounds ridiculous, but this was a major purchase and something we have to use on a daily basis. Add to the mix that we are totally new homeowners and don't have much experience with or opinions on appliance brands, etc.- up until now we haven't really had a choice in the matter.
Anyway... long story short, we ended up buying a refrigerator this weekend that we're both pretty excited about. Surprisingly, it wasn't from Sears and was a style we hadn't originally planned for. Not surprisingly, we went with a Samsung and it fell within the budget we set before leaving the house! Jake loves a good value and this definitely was a steal!!! I'll have to give you all a video tour and our review once it's set up and filled in our new place- I realize that may sound crazy but I'm a marketer down to my bones!
