Download apps to order groceries, look up recipes, leave notes for the family, share photos, play music, search the internet, and even mirror whatever you’re watching on your Smart TV!

When to Replace Your Refrigerator

When you’ve had your refrigerator for a while, it starts to show signs of age. Sometimes it’s worth it to have it repaired, but it might make more sense to just replace the unit. Refrigerators typically last between ten and twenty years, so take into account how long you’ve had it. If it’s over eight years old, problems may be more concerning than they’d be with a newer fridge. Here are some signs it’s time for a replacement:

DIY Cupcake Ovens!

In the spirit of Appliance Employee Pricing, we made little ovens for our cupcakes! After printing templates from madebymarzipan.com, we got to work making tiny appliance homes for our cupcakes.

You’re better off printing the template directly on the paper you’re using, but we didn’t have paper in the right size, so we traced it instead.
