Making it MINE

Now that I have the apartment (move-in day's Saturday, so THAT should be fun) I'm getting all kinds of crazy ideas for how to make the space my own. Picking out things like the shower curtains and ways to deal with the ugly heater that's right in the way of where I want to put my bed.

Which leads to this crazy idea: I want a new fridge.
The current fridge is probably from the 80s. It's a bit too large for the space, and it almost certainly is an energy hog. I took one look at it and knew that I'd better check to see who pays for electricity for this apartment. The fridge isn't mine per se, but I'd like to see what joys a newer, slightly thinner fridge would bring to the space. I mean, they showed me an apartment that didn't even have a fridge.

I'm probably drunk with power over "owning" my new space, but it can't hurt to ask, right?

  1. If they installed one, they may be willing to take it out if you were to tell them you already have your own fridge. Then, go out and find a new fridge, lol. Check Craigslist for an apartment sized fridge, or freecycle ( where you can get the for free! I got mine from CL, and its been a champ. You are going to have so much fun making it your very own space...congrats!
