Replacing Necessary Appliance

September 1st, 2014 at 01:17 am

One major purchase I had while offline, I had to replace my refrigerator. They sure don't make them like the old ones these days. As my rust bucket fridge downstairs is still working after 32 years.

It was only 10 years old and not worth spending a lot of money on getting it fixed either. So over $1300 was spent on replacing it. I had the money saved for new washing machine so I didn't need to panic about it.

Now I am saving money again for my washing machine replacement as I am not planning to have it fixed, just will replace it when its time it's almost 30 years old and there are no spare parts for it now!

    Is your ancient working refrigerator a General Electric? We have a 67-year-old refrigerator we unplugged (imagine the energy costs!): it doesn't hold much. I keep hoping to put it on an auction site so some prop warehouse serving the entertainment industry would take it.

    No it's not General Electric retro one, but Westinghouse an Australian brand.

    I hope you are able to sell it.

    I don't know the OZ sale schedule but here September is an excellent time to buy major home appliances. New models are out and there are sales at all the outlets to sell 2014 models. In new housing developments new buyers are selling the basic, builder's grade model as they want all the bells and whistle type machines. Some may have been operated once or twice, many have never been had the hoses connected.
