Nothing lasts forever, but with appliances they seem to and then one morning, they don't work anymore.  That is not exactly what happened with our clothes dryer.  About a week ago it began to sing, well actually it was a loud screech, like giant fingernails on the world's largest blackboard.

We couldn't complain, we had bought it refurbished about six or seven years ago for less than $200.
It gets used almost daily.  I know, I had a clothesline for years, but every tornado season it got blown away.  Creature comforts are my weakness, especially washing machines and clothes dryers.

So today we went back to the appliance store where they sell nothing but refurbished appliances and bought another clothes dryer.  They will pick up the old one when they bring the"new" one and probably use the old one for parts to refurbish more.  I think it is a great way to recycle.

Wishing you a peaceful Sunday.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. They don't make appliances to last more than 7 years i was told by a appliance sales person. It's a conspiracy, as the big manufacturing companies have bought all the small manufacturer of appliance companies so they have a monopoly. They don't care about the buyer, all they want is our money.

    Good luck with your new refurbished dryer.

  2. That's a great way to save the landfill! Good job! I've given away old vacuums to a place that fixes them and gives them to those in need. I try to always find homes for items and not throw them out. I'm finally getting new TV's and boy is it hard to find a home for old ones. Our recycle place charges $20 for every electronic item turned in and Goodwill only takes flat screens....I'm still looking for a place before resorting to paying $20! I'm so cheap! Ha!
