Back when we lived in their area and they had seven children, we visited a family and noticed that they had three fridges. They were organized (I didn't look in all of them but saw that they were labeled).
Earlier this year, we bought a second fridge. The first fridge is technically the landlord's. Now that we have two, I can dedicate one to leftovers, with meat going in the freezer. I put unopened milks in there too. The first fridge has the usual - fruit and vegetables in the freezer with fish, opened milk and my husband's beverage of choice in the fridge with salad vegetables in the crisper.
Tonight while three of my four children were walking around the block with me, we noticed that a neighbor had set his fridge out by the street. However, it isn't trash night until tomorrow night, so I looked and next to it was a sign that said "Free (Just Ugly)" and "It Runs". I thought, Wow, this is great! Now we can put one in the garage, and stock up even more! We don't even have to turn it on right away if we don't need to.
But when I went home to ask my husband, he said, no, we have two and we don't need it. I think it would be nice to take it while the neighbor is offering it, especially since he offered to wheel it down for me when I asked if he had a hand truck or dolly I could borrow. I don't know that we're done having children and it would be nice to have it for when we might need it.
What would you do? And how many fridges does your family use, if you care to share?
