Cleanliness is next to Godliness

MDK-20090814-1565, originally uploaded by monkeydoc.

Our old washer was making some horrible noises, and Lisa and I have talked about a new washer and dryer for a long, long time. Lisa has had her eye on front loaders and when Heather picked LG for Starlite, that was all that we needed. We have walked by these babies several times at Home Depot. Lisa's eyes always lingered longingly while we were headed to the checkout. Well, the other night we saw these two on clearance for big $$ off. After buying the pedestals which were also on sale we saved $600. I went back to get a cord for the dryer two days later and saw they were running an appliance sale on energy star and Lisa got another $200 back!!

I do have to say that the difference in form factor was severely underestimated. After some harsh words and two evenings they are both in place and level. Lisa's in heaven and has been doing laundry non-stop. They even play a little tune when they're done washing :-)

Don't quite have the energy to do a whole post, so I'll reference you to Heather and Leon's blog for a great post. Thanks Heather! Pictures of their place can also be seen on my flickr page.
