Replacing your appliances can be an expensive business ... especially if you want something stylish, well-made and roomy. But if you've got the space, we might have the solution: The New York City Office of Mental Health is getting rid of one of its morgue refrigerators. Measuring 6 feet high, 6 feet wide, and 8 feet deep, the fridge is built to last, with chrome fittings and a premium stainless steel finish. Best of all, it's currently going for about $200 on eBay. Unfortunately, you have to pay for delivery.
