In case you weren’t aware, “fridging” (or search for #fridging at your own risk), has become a THING. This happened a while ago, thanks to Nicki Minaj (see below). But then we noticed more people started to do it. Then Christina Ricci decided to show how small she is by fitting inside of the refrigerator. Which then led to a search on the interwebs about “fridging”. Results may vary so some of it might be funny. Some of it might be weird. Some of it might be NSFW.
Love and respect that refrigerator and recycle it when it’s ready to say goodbye. Don’t get stuck inside of one (hello, poor Cherie.). I don’t want to write about that in the future.
So far 2014 has started off with some crazy high incentives to recycle your old refrigerator. Let’s head over to the East Coast. Both Massachusetts AND Rhode Island utilities are offering you $100 to have them come by and pick up your fridge. For free.
They’ll give you $100.
One Benjamin (although it’s a check but close enough).
Do you know what you could do with that $100?
Let me count the ways:
Buy 100 items at the Dollar Tree (or better yet, the 99 Cent Store)
Get 100 scoops of ice cream at $1 scoop night at various Baskin-Robbins stores
Having a shopping spree at a Goodwill or other thrift store of your choice
Donate it to a great non-profit in your area
Save it for a rainy day
I could keep going but you get the point. But, this is only a limited time deal until February 28th. What are you waiting for?

Halloween is a mere TWO days away and you still don’t have a costume. Never fear! You can always become a refrigerator for Halloween. All you need are: cardboard boxes, paint, some refrigerator “magnets”, stuff from your pantry and maybe a box of cereal or an ice cream container. This costume will be the talk of the party, not to mention, gives you some space to enjoy some Halloween sweet treats!
Here are some good (or funny) examples from around the web:

I was reading the New York Times and came across this article about finding inspiration from refrigerator doors to make a video and use a song called “Christine’s Refrigerator”. The song was written by John Margolis and Don Rosler. It’s a nice post lunch article to read. Who knew that refrigerator doors could be so emotional?
There has been a lot of refrigerator recycling news stories popping up across the country where many utilities are incentivizing their customers to recycle their refrigerators (yeah!) with gift card raffles on top of the existing rebate. They are ranging from $250 to $2000! Here’s the round down by state:
