appliance shopping

One Saturday in August we headed out to check on some prices on appliances, mainly a washer and dryer. First stop Sears. Because of limited space in the kitchen...sadly we don't have a laundry room...we were in need of a stack able set that wouldn't break the bank. Lucky for us they had a close out on a Whirlpool floor model that fit the bill.
Yes, I realize this is a horrible picture. But, I was just so excited they were sitting in my house even if they are still wrapped in plastic.
As we looked around at other appliances we decided to check out the dishwashers as well. Because of limited space again, we were in search of an 18in dishwasher and wouldn't you know it Sears had one in stock. Score. They only had it in white and we are going with stainless steel and black for our other appliances, but the price was right so we just went for it. We figured since it is so small and there aren't any other appliances on the same wall we could get away with it.

There next to the dishwasher was a beautiful black and stainless steel gas range. Someone had bought it and then decided it wasn't the right color, so they returned it before opening it all the way. Lucky for us, because it was out of the box it was marked down a great deal so we decided to take it home as well. Thank the heavens above I don't have to try and clean the old gross range that was already in the house.

Another terrible picture, but I'm just so happy they are here.

Man were we at Sears for what seemed like an 3-4 hours...I was exhausted by the time we left. We went in just to price out washers and dryers and left with a new set, a new gas stove, an 18in dishwasher and a new hot water heater. I think it was a success.
