Uh-oh, sometimes emergency happen. Your fridge DIED and it’s going to some time before you can replace it. Or it’s been a rough year and if you don’t get that power bill DOWN it’s going to get shut off. Living without a fridge may seem unthinkable but it is not as impossible as it sounds. Our family of six lived with a tiny dorm fridge for over six months and no refrigerator at all for two months. (We did have a small freezer to store meats)
Having a fridge is nice, but it’s better if you are not beholden to it. It’s a useful tool that can save quite a bit of time. Even if you aren’t interested in living without a fridge full time it’s good to know how to survive with out it. We still use the skills below in many different scenarios, especially to save space in our fridge.
