Their household has adjusted to not using a freezer in their kitchen! Having the refrigerator component separate from the freezer part makes that shift a bit easier I imagine… but still!
- [refering to their under the counter freezer] “It’s still in the apartment but we haven’t turned it on. Believe me, our tummies don’t miss the Ben and Jerry’s”
Other kitchen appliances their household eliminated: food processor, electric rice cooker, and unintentionally the electric dishwasher.
I admit, this appeals to the living-with-out-stuff ascetic monk in me (he’s tiny… my shiny crow impulses keep him battered down).
Could you consider not having a freezer? How about one as a seasonal appliance?
