I have to start dieting and watching calories and keeping water at hand at the office. what is a good brand of mini refrigerator for my office? and not too expensive. i don't recall the brand in Target but they were about $80. my supervisor once told me not to spend less than $50 or i won't get quality. it would be just for me, the kind you reach all the way down to open and close

I would think that the most effective diet would involve keeping the fridge as far away from one;s desk as possible...in the next town perhaps?

How about a water cooler instead?

i bring in sandwiches either from my own house or from the delis because i am the Sunday supervisor and can't leave during the day on Sundays . i could use other staff's fridges but i'd rather have my own. i'm too busy at work and i don't plan on stocking the fridge with anything beyond water and a sandwich each day

im taking metformin, victoza and glucomannan (a fiber supp that also curbs the appetite) all which curb the appetite so i have that under control now

Many of the brands are similar at Target and Best Buy, around the $100 price point. It's not until you get into the market for a bar fridge, built-in, that it really changes between Uline, Kitchen Aid, or Viking. I think that Frigidaire makes a small fridge/freezer, but that would really be the only variant I can think of in that type of free-standing unit that's easily available locally. I would check Target and Best Buy, perhaps even K-Mart or Home Depot to see what's locally available.

I paid $79 for my little Whrilpool fridge in my office. I got it at PC Richards (I try to shop there and at J&R because they are locally-owned). I've had it about 3 years. It works fine, and has cubbies for cans and bottles. It came in black or white; I chose black.

I am thinking of purchasing a mini fridge for my room as the one in my apt is too small for 3 roommates. Does anyone know of a local store that will delivery your purchases to your home? It would be too heavy for me to carry to my apt.

I thought about ordering it online, but than UPS usually delivers when I am not home and won't leave it at my door. I know Bed Bath and Beyond will delivetry all of your purchases to your home for a fee. I looked at them but they do not sell fridges.

Thanks for the suggestions in advance. (Sometimes I miss not having a car)

Best Buy will deliver to your apartment, usually available on the same day as you place your order. J and R can also arrange delivery to your apartment as well.

PC Richards advertises $49 shipping and setup...$10 extra for Manhattan. They have several nice office sized mini-fridges.

(I am quite near a P.C. Richards and I would borrow a hand truck from maintenance and roll it home. They are not that heavy if strapped to wheels. Of course if you need the subway, then it's not a go.)

I had a BIG air conditioner delivered by UPS from Venting Direct...free shipping if order totals $500 so I bought a fan and a humidifier to get to $501. These kinds of deliveries are what makes a doorman worth having.
