The fridge is a staple of modern life, but a typo has got me wondering if it's really a necessary item. Could you live a fridge-free life more easily than one without a TV?

A post at EcoSalon erroneously understated the percentage of Americans that possessed a fridge, leading some Twitterers to conclude that more people owned TVs than fridges. The figure got corrected quickly, but it left me wondering: just how odd a state of affairs would that be if it were true?
I'd have thought a PC was more essential than either (and a decent TV replacement), while my experience with cheaper fridge-free hotels during Hand Luggage Only make me realise that fridge-free living was something of a false economy, even in the cooler months.
Anyway, I'm wondering: which would you prefer to give up, and why? Share your thoughts (and no-fridge strategies) in the comments.
