Yesterday we went to IKEA + scored some amazing bargains for our kitchen.
You’ll just have to take my word for it, though,
because just like “ALL the professional bloggers”,
I left my camera at home.
Oh, dear. Let’s try to move on.
Check this out:
NUTID S23 White counter depth refrigerator
Regular: $1,899.00 / Clearance: $699
WHOA!!! I know!!! I still can’t believe it!!!
1. A mere $699 . . . AND . . . 2. counter depth . . . AND . . .
. . . 3. the Kay-coveted WHITE!!!!???
Plus, 4. it does not say IKEA on it,
+ 5. it does have the acceptable (stainless) handles —
not those cheapie-looking white plastic ones.
I’ve got my standards.
“But why white?” you ask?
Stainless is what we have now, but I wanted to be different.
If you really must know, here’s why I went over to the white side:
Yesh, that’s my designer lady crush, Sarah Richardson,
.who, in one of her most recent projects,
chose white kitchen appliances.
Sadly, I am not Sarah,
nor is G.O. anything like Tommy (Sarah’s main gay):
Nope. G.O. nixed the idea of the white appliances!
I’m kind of glad that I forgot the camera,
because the Bickersons in the IKEA kitchen department
wasn’t such a pretty picture, after all.

He protested, as he does, + I just
listened stared at him.
I then marched over to Mr. IKEA Man
+ asked if, at that price,
the (3 remaining) white refrigerators would be soon be gone.
When he said “today”, that was that — for me, anyway.
G.O. color-shamed me,
right there in front of Mr. IKEA Man! —
saying that “everybody on HGTV wants stainless + granite!!!”
I, of course, was mortified + refused to engage.
At this moment, however, Mr. IKEA Man,
who’s probably heard it all, at least a bazillion times,
brightly offered this patented conflict diffuser:
“I always tell people that, if they want white,
they should get white!”
I couldn’t agree more . . .
. . . aaaaaand they’re delivering our white refrigerator tomorrow.
Thanks, Mr. IKEA Man.
Oh, + IKEA, too, for offering these at such a deep discount.
