45 days in and I finally managed to buy a fridge. Going without a fridge for that long wasn’t hard, but it sure didn’t make my life any easier.
What definitely helped was this very cold winter that has sat upon Europe this season. Not that I am complaining, this is nothing compared to Eastern Europe right now or Minnesota’s last winter. Thanks to unusual temperatures such as -10, -15 °C (unusual for Bordeaux, of course) I was able to use my window as my fancy glass door mini fridge. Keeping ones food fresh has never been more fun.
That worked for a month, then it was just picnic weather and I was left with no place to put my food. So, I was fridgeless.
So I saw it as a time for desperate measures. I had to buy a fridge. Not expensive, but like everything here, I measure the amount of money spent on that as how much wine I could have gotten.
Nowadays; ONE USED MINI FRIDGE = 20 LITTERS OF WHITE WINE.
Not bad, at least I’ll keep my cheese fresh.
