3. Large-size fridges

A large-sized fridge is a must-have during the endemic. You’ll definitely need the extra space to store fresh meat and vegetables in the event of a lockdown or increase in dining in with WFH arrangements.

What’s more, a larger size fridge means being able to organise your food, inevitably reducing food waste. How’s that, you ask?
