Believe it or not, it is absolutely possible to get by without a big refrigerator in your kitchen. After all, before refrigerators became a household staple in the last century, people somehow managed to store their perishable fruits, vegetables, legumes and meats for an extended period of time with ice boxes, root cellars, evaporative cooling pots, preserving, canning and more.
So whether you are a green enthusiast weaning yourself off dependence on big electric appliances or an urban dweller who simply wants more space in the kitchen, maybe you will find that living without a refrigerator isn't so bad after all. And maybe it's not such a bad thing that you no longer have excess space in your freezer to store all the cartons of ice cream for your midnight sweet tooth binges.
