Buy This, Not That...Maybe

Love that book, Eat This, Not That...especially when I discovered my favorite tuna sandwich was 1200 calories with 75 grams of fat.

Our adaptation is Buy this, Not that.....(am I reaching?)

Buy this: The french door refrigerator will allow for greater lateral storage and more refrigerator room than a side by side. The doors are also split, which is better in tighter spaces and island installations.

Not That...Maybe. The side by side used to be the standard. It is not as hip, cool or functional as the french. It can be, however, almost $1000 cheaper in a shallow depth configuration. Some people have a different idea of cool with another $1000 in their pocket

    Yes, the French doors look cool but I think people underestimate how much they use their freezer. My niece and her family of 4 have a French door and the freezer is jammed with kids treats, frozen pizzas, entrees and leftovers. The treasure chest is difficult to get something quickly without resorting the contents, and it sometimes prevents the french doors from closing. I'll keep my side by side for now...I simply reach in and get what I need. Plus I REALLY like the ice and filtered water thru the door.

  2. You can buy a french with ice and water...
