Living in Los Angeles has been great, so far, but there have been some challenges. A major discovery happened during our apartment hunt. We learned that landlords are not required to provide refrigerators to their tenants. (Un-reaking-believable!)
Our initial reaction was one of unrequited sorrow and despair. I believe the cool kids write, FML, in these types of situations. With no place to store our eggs, we had to come up with a plan. We did what any other red-blooded American would do; we turned to Craigslist. There were some decent choices and we planned to purchase one of the “egg storage units.” Everything changed on Monday.
We found an appliance store a block away from our apartment and made the short walk. Upon entering, we noticed that the place only sold brand new refrigerators, and we were not in the market for such lavishness. (We signed a lease; we didn’t close on a house!)
Thankfully, the owner of the business told us about a great place in Burbank that sold used appliances. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the area, Burbank is the next town over; it is literally a stone’s throw away!
After a short drive, we walked into Savon Appliances (Located at 2925 W Burbank Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505) and found a good selection of used “ice boxes.” There were some old refrigerators from the fifties and sixties, which were cool, but we were on a mission to save on an appliance.
The selection process was rigorous; I had my favorite and @EFidalgo12 had his. There was a quick duel and the victor gained the honor of picking our “new” fridge. (No individuals were harmed during the selection of our refrigerator!)
The best news of all was the fact that the place delivered. We do not own an SUV, or a pick-up truck. I’m extremely happy that we were not forced to role the fridge, on a dolly, back to North Hollywood. There was one bit of bad news. The earliest delivery date is Friday so we are still without somewhere to keep the milk from spoiling. (Tomorrow, we will finally be able to make our own meals and not have to rely on the talented people who “chef-it-up” in the local eateries!)
Our fridge also comes with a bonus, at no extra charge. There is a one-year warranty which covers all repairs. Not only will the store deliver our beer cooler (Who are we kidding!), but they will also pick it up and fix any problems which may occur within the next year. (I’m not one hundred percent certain, but I believe their one-year protection plan lasts more than 90 days!)

Life has been weird, living without a place to keep the beers cool, but the hard times are almost over! We are now accepting items which require refrigeration! (Hablamos Español!)
I think it looks a little something like this.
