Recently we received a phone call about an appliance pick up. The person on the other end insisted the unit, a fridge, was under two years old and in perfect working order. They had only changed it because a plastic light covering inside the fridge had warped slightly due to heat coming off the bulbs.
I wondered if this was too good to be true. The caller’s timing is perfect. We know someone who can really use a new fridge. If it works this will make an excellent Christmas present.
Anyway my husband picked the unit up a couple of nights ago and brought it home. It is a gorgeous LG stainless steel refrigerator and definitely only a couple of years old. We plugged it in, I crossed my fingers and we left it to cool overnight. The next morning and to my delight it was working.
I spent a couple of hours in elbow grease cleaning the unit and it looks brand new.
This piece would easily sell for between $100-$200. Instead, and in keeping with the season, it is destined to become a fantastic gift for someone special.
This is definitely the sort of Frugal Christmas miracle I enjoy. Merry Christmas Baby!
