Next Focus - Appliances

Now that I have obtained a house (or at least am within 12 days of doing so officially), I am looking for various items to make life more convenient. I have made a list, and have been looking diligently on Craig's list (or the side of the road - LOL) for some stuff

  • Clothes Washer - arrangement made!
  • Freezer - Obtained!
  • China Cabinet (for Grandma's china)
  • Gun Safe (for the long guns - grandpa's and the one I picked up last spring)
  • Bookshelf (can never have enough of these!
  • Metal shelving unit for work shop (hold tools, tool boxes etc.)

I'm hoping to pick up a washer tomorrow. I found a heavy duty front loader, 5 years old, with cosmetic damage for $50 (not a typo) on CL. The only issue is connecting with the lady who is working and in the midst of moving. WS swapped vehicles with me tonight so I would have the truck to pick up the washer if the opportunity arises tomorrow (I'm on vacation for the day). Also may be able to pick up a 12 cubic ft. freezer for short money - I talked to a guy tonight and he just has to make sure the freezer works (hasn't been plugged in for a while).

Hoping my good luck streak continues to hold until I get these two essentials (or at least highly desired items). The rest I can wait for until the right opportunity comes along.

Change of plans on the washer - getting a new one as a housewarming gift. Will post about it later.
