For about a year of not frequent shopping at my local
Goodwill, ARC or flea markets, I have been
able to save money.
I was able to save money to take Hubby , daughter
and myself to Disneyland last year.
Nothing felt sogood.
I was able to save for everything and it was
such a great feeling.
In January of this year I decided to save money to
finally replace that un-matching fridge in the since
then remodeled kitchen. It helps that the price on
refrigerators are much less expensive then they
were in 2008 (French door style). It also helped that
the one I got – with all the bells and whistles was
about 25% off, free delivery/haul away , no city taxes-
because I live in the country annnnnnnd I got it at
Lowes and they had a deal (still going on for a few
days). Pre-load a special gift card – turn around and
use the gift card immediately (If you want). They
then take 10% of the original purchase amount and
load the card in the middle of this month. So Basically
I spend 2 grand on my fridge and get two hundred dollars
of free Lowes money to spend.
Isn’t that a steal ?
I love a good bargain !
Here is a before and after:
Yes, the new fridge is like a mirror.
( need to get the right cleaner to make it spotless)
I don’t work for Lowes and
get no moola for giving them brownie points.
I know that there is a sticker showing.
This is the only time the fridge will be empty for
I have installed a “diet alarm” on this
new model. It will sound when making
poor choices .
No really this isn’t needed, because
of the shiny surface being like a
mirror – just take a look at yourself
BEFORE opening the fridge and
make your choice.
The last picture is the fridge open -
doesn’t it look like it wants a hug ?
I wanna hug it because I paid
I LOVE YOU CASH.
P.S. Yes, I have
been through Financial Peace
University with Dave Ramsey .
Cash is King Baby !
I am linking this to Susan’s Met Monday – because it
is a before and after !
