    Default What size fridge do you have?

    I have two younger children and a small fridge. We are needing to upgrade shortly, and I am trying to ascertain an appropriate size for our family. I love my LG, but it's just too small- 205L. We are looking at having another two children in the next 6 years. I also don't know whether to buy an additional freezer for storing our bulk buys. Thoughts?

    We have a side by side 650litre approx two door fridge freezer and it's ridiculously huge. I find with a two door that although the litre capacity is huge, space to hold things of a decent size is limited and we always reshuffle when putting something of a decent size in there. We also completely fill the freezer but maybe only half the fridge.

    For us, I would buy a 400-450L fridge/freezer and then a second small freezer and put that in the laundry. I want a fridge that can hold cakes or my stew pot etc, without major reshuffles.

    I have a 2 year old, another on the way and a thrifty husband, so we have a 550ltr Westinghouse fridge with a freezer on the bottom, a 205ltr upright freezer and a massive chest freezer.. We live in a country town where we have to travel 2 hours for grocery shops so we freeze a lot of stuff.. We used to have a side by side fridge/freezer which I hated. The shelf layout meant that nothing fitted well and had to be reorganised every time something was taken out..

    I just got rid of a 400l fridge-freezer and upgraded to a 518l. I also have a medium size chest freezer which I love as things keep really well in it. Because I had the freezer I chose a freezer-on-top model as they dedicate more of the total litres to fridge storage than the upside down models do.

    I have an 801L.(Two adults, three kids). It was expensive, but it will always be big enough. I could fit ALL my shopping in the doors alone (and i shop fortnightly). Its huge.
