Cheap Refrigerators Features Comparison
Unless you're into serious eco-living, a refrigerator is a must-have item. But serious frugal shoppers can find a seriously good budget fridge in one of three configurations: top freezer, bottom freezer, and side-by-side. The final choice of budget fridge will depend on kitchen layout, the household's need for cool storage space, and whether you prefer to reach high or low for fresh or frozen foods. Other factors to consider are color options (stainless steel adds to the bottom line), storage components (bins and shelves) and how they're arranged. Also look for an Energy Star; each of our four top budget fridge picks proudly bear one.
