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.
You've had some fabulous finds as you look for things to fill your new home. Congrats on the washer find!

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