How to Save Your Refrigerator from Beverage Overload

At my house, there’s always a flurry of activity.

Whether the guys are zipping out for tennis or loading up to go mountain biking, there’s always an overload of bottled colas, water, and sports drinks moving in and out of the refrigerator. Needless to say, this creates total disorder and crowding on Every. Single. Shelf.

To get this chaos under control, my refrigerator needed some kind of system to manage all of the cans, bottles, and extra “guy” traffic.

But what I found was something better.

Say hello to my new BFF, the NewAir ABR-960 Beverage Cooler, a 96-can capacity beverage cooler that is fully adjustable to accommodate cans or bottles.  The cooler, which is designed to fit under standard counters, can also be used as a standalone unit.

This little bundle of joy was delivered right to my door in double and triple packaging. To unpack it, all the guys had to do was pop the cardboard open at the top and down the side.  The packaging was then easily pulled away from the unit. And since the cooler only weighs 76-pounds, it was super easy to carry into the house.

At this point, I will tell you that my cooler arrived so quickly, I was out ahead of my skis just a bit.  What I mean is that I do have a space for the cooler to live in a built-in cabinet, but didn’t have the design plan completed and contractors booked before the cooler arrived.

But you know what?  This truly isn’t a problem.  We simply slid the cooler into a little space in the sun room until the extra cabinet is built.  And, as it turns out, the sun room is a great location since the guys will tailgate out on the patio until the end of football season anyway.

And wouldn’t you know,  I’m already hearing chatter that they are scheming talking about how much they’d like to move the cooler into the basement Man Cave during the winter.  

Huuuum. Sounds like I either need to get that cooler built into my cabinet quickly or call NewAir to deliver a second cooler.

    This is perfect Susie, we have a full size fridge in the garage for beer and soda. It’s a newer one thankfully but this size would be perfect. I just entered, thanks for hosting the giveaway

    Oh please say this giveaway is open to Canadian residents. The beverage cooler in our kitchen island died two weeks ago and the clutter in our kitchen fridge is driving me crazy! This giveaway couldn’t come at a better time, Susie.

      Oh Marie! I’m so sad to relay that it’s USA only. I sent a message after I read your comment to see is we could sneak in Canada, but they sent apologies. So sorry dear friend.

    I love it just sitting in the sunroom too and am so happy for you to get this cooler. I’ve pinned for later of course and entered to win so crossing my fingers and hope to die, sticking a needle in my eye, whatever that means-LOL
