That might be great for someone that’s never seen food before and has a lifetime to manually scan every perishable item into their food system, but for us, we’d much rather just say, “Oh, this shouldn’t be brown. Time to throw it out,” than pay a lot to have an appliance fridgesplain it to us.
Try this instead: get a smaller fridge to limit the amount of perishables. Not only will you use the food at hand before you buy more, you’re less likely to overlook anything in its hidden depths. Oh, and you’re saving electricity.
You don’t need to travel from department store to department store surveying mini fridges, either. Instead, just go to your local college at the end of May when everyone is moving out. College kids, realizing that they can’t fit their glorified beer coolers in the trunk of their subcompact, often give those things away. Heck, grab a couple and sell the extra one back to the freshmen in August at a markup. Boom, you just got paid $50 to own a fridge.
