Success




I guess my last post was confusing. It was a quote from the Simpsons.

Anyway, it looks like I'm finally going to be moving out. Found a great apartment that's not shady and cheap and quiet. It was listed on Craiglist two days ago, and today I met the owner. Really nice guy, not shady at all, everything looks good.

One issue though is that it has no refrigerator so I'm going to be buying one. It's crazy that new ones go for 500-1000 dollars, but there are plenty on Craigslist for 100-150 dollars. I don't know if there's anything particularly important about refrigerators that I have to look out for. If anyone knows any insider tips on buying refrigerators, please leave a comment.

I really don't get why people spend money on new cars. Used cars are the way to go people!

  2. People usually buy new for the powertrain warranty, but you're right, it makes more sense to buy used. As far as fridges are concerned, there isn't much variation between them. Ice makers are pretty nice features though...

    Congrats on the new place, man!

  6. Always go on craigslist to see if you can get some home furnishings as well! :D

  7. Older refrigerators, pretty much all used ones, are less energy efficient (can make your electricity bill go way up) and harmful to the environment.

    What you should look for is a balance on price, energy efficiency and volume.

    Also consider that people sell broken stuff con craiglist.

  9. Oh, it's too bad you didn't move a few months ago. We discarded a perfectly good refrigerator. (Nothing was wrong with it - but we upgraded our kitchen.) I would have GIVEN it to you.

    I love side-by-side fridges, but they tend to be more expensive and for a lot of people, less practical. Get one with a decent ener-guide rating...it will save you money in the long run.

  11. People spend money on new cars as opposed to used cars for the same reason we buy new underwear

    ...

    True story.

  15. Make sure the fridge fits in the space you have available in the apartment and that you can open the fridge door all the way when it is in there!

  24. If you have to finance a used car, your terms are horrid. Payment plans on new vehicles are more forgiving.
