Since Christmas three major appliances have gone in our house.
Our washing machine, our microwave and stove top are all not working. We were going to get the washing machine fixed but found out today that it is going to cost just about as much to fix as buying a new one.
We will go without a microwave for a while. I haven't really missed it enough yet to rush out and buy one. We will need to get the stove fixed soon though and will probably buy a new washing machine. The upright freezer will have to wait now. A washing machine is a bit more important to me than a freezer.
