A New Addition
Our oven quit, the frig and freezer shelf doors are being held on by duct tape. Did you know that duct tape does not work so well when it is frozen? I know this because it has been replaced by moi many, many times over 17 years. I've nursed these babies for all I could get out of them! Also the frig is normally very watery. I know, odd statement but no matter how many nobs I turn-it's always wet in there. Kind of like its been raining. The water was turned off to the ice maker about 8 years ago so I know that something is actually wrong with it. I bet you have never had things rust in your frig. It's a gift really.
So we did something that we never do and financed the entire shiny mess! It about killed me. You may find my ass in the corner, in the fetal position sucking my thumb and clutching the checkbook.
We bought from HHGregg. They are new to this area so they are way cheaper than anything that I could find. There was a 10% off special and I got another 10% off for signing up for their rewards card. Good thing I did my homework. We ended up paying $2300 for all with delivery. We also got 12 months free financing(Its 29.99% normally-they have to be crazy! Who pays that?). We will also be getting $470 back in the form of a visa card. I think that I just finished funding Christmas.
I hate owing anything but it needed to be done. Den pulled the oven apart a year ago. He was complaining then that we needed to replace everything because it was all so old. I hope that we get 17 years out of these appliances. The frig is 17 years old, the microwave is 17 years old, the dishwasher 12 years old and the stove is about 14 years old. I think that we went past the point of now return with some of these appliances about 10 years ago.
I'm hoping to make our money back on the electricity that we save since everything will now be energy efficient. I doubt it but a girl can dream. Or maybe we will win it all back in Vegas. Again with the dreaming!
Have a great day,
