Goodbye old friend...
And HEL-LO to you...
Our poor washer has been on its last leg and the dryer officially quit so it was time for a high efficiency set. On the long plane ride back to Texas, I happened to sit next to a Sears exec. I asked a bazillion appliance questions (I know, intriguing conversation right?) and he managed to convince me that high efficiency is a much smarter option.
However, we ended up buying the new set from Best Buy. It's ok, Sears has plenty of our money anyway. Back to the washer and dryer - I'm IN LOVE with them. The best part is I checked the circulars a week later and found the exact set on sale. Because they price match, I went back to Best Buy and they handed me $200!!! Woohoo!
There's no time like HOURS before it is delivered to measure and make sure they'll fit. It was a close call (look at the space under the cabinet) but it worked out.
Why I love it? It uses a fraction of the water, soap, and energy. The drying time is almost cut in half because of the sensors. AND, they hold much larger loads of laundry. So, the king-sized duvet and sheets fit in one load. It's also very easy to keep the lint build-up at bay ...which is SO IMPORTANT!
I think my favorite part has to be the music it plays when it's done. It's much sweeter than that horrible, jump-out-of-your-chair buzzer I had before.
Next is decorating this room. I'm not even sure of where to start.
