Does anyone know their own cost per year?



Our now much too large one has a $45 per year sticker on it. The newer ones are better insulated and more efficient. Chest freezer manual defrost use less than upright frost free ones and keep stuff fresh longer.


The energy guides are all online with the unit at Blue and Orange. I just peaked at a 7 cu foot and it was $30 per year. Do keep in mind that you may have to adjust that up or down for your KWH rate as they use the national average amount of .12 per KWH.

The wife can take leftovers and make a excellent meal that she, you, myself and any cook book has never heard or read about. When I ask if that would be available again someday the answer is usually no because according to her she won't remember what was in it and those leftovers may not be available again.

@Nik333 asked if I would post my beef stew receipt and i ran into the same problem. In fact When I went to save what I had it said duplicate name as I had tried a few years ago yo write it up and it was different.

I will eventually write up the basics of what I add, or find a standard receipt that is close enough. My wife measures everything exactly, but I add salt by throwing a pinch over my shoulder.

Re: How many trips to the grocery store?


The worst moment is when you are standing with lots of grocery bags in the hall, when you've just brought them and realised you've forgotten something. This moment you think,that thing you've forgotten wasn't so necessary and make excuses for yourselves not to return to the grocery.

And the feeling is really disgusting when you had a grocery list to guide you.
