Wow, the price of appliances!
I buy $3 scratch tickets regularly as well as the Lottario in memory of Hubby, he liked those. We said that if we won a big prize (not gazillions, but 6-figures), we wouldn't bother with a house, we'd stay where we are, and we'd change the kitchen.
I recently went with a girlfriend when she needed a new dishwasher. Wow! What an eye-opener. She ended up by getting a $500 dishwasher which works perfectly fine, has a delay timer on it, energy-saving, quick wash etc. So what on earth does a $2400 dishwasher do??? Neither of us could imagine forking out that kind of dough.
I would love, love a frig with the freezer on the bottom. Having my stuff at eye-level would be such a treat instead of twisting my body and fumbling around at the very back on the bottom shelf.
I'd also still keep buying clothes at second-hand stores, but 'better' second-hand stores. LOL
