A f[ri]dge is a one time expense of $400-$1200.

That has not been my experience. I bought my house in 1976, and it still had the original (Kelvinator?) refrigerator that came with it when it was built in 1950. I had to get a new one that lasted about 13 years. That one lasted about 10 years. I am now on my third. When I looked them up in Consumer Reports, they suggested that refrigerators now last on average 9 years, so it is hardly a one-time expense. In fact, I assume that the home appliances I buy are actually rented. The annual rent is the purchase price divided by how long they last.
