I can't wait to do laundry!

Remember how excited I was over my Oreck Orbiter? Well, today the planets finally aligned with Home Depot having 10% off their appliances, 12 months same as cash AND free delivery and haul-away. Anything additional we bought today would also be 10% off, 12 months same as cash, since I am the daughter of a WWII veteran.

I got a new washer and dryer which will be delivered on Friday!!!!

I got the Maytag Neptune High efficiency, 3.81 cubic ft washer and the Maytag Neptune 7.3 cubic ft dryer. I didn't get the pedestals, because we have shelves in the laundry room that wouldn't allow room for it. I'm just so excited! This is REALLY going to cut down on the amount of laundry loads I have to do (currently it seems like about 10-15) because we have an almost 12 year old top-load washer.

Ooooooh! I am so freaking jealous! My washer sucks monkey tails and I can't wait to get a new one.

(How sad is it that we have the same amount of laundry to do a week, and all I have to wash for is me and my husband?)

I first enjoyed doing laundry after using a Neptune. (:

I can't wait. It's going to be a LONG week waiting on it. :) I've had this little ass washer and dryer combo we got for about $250 each when we moved here 11 years ago. Scott was REALLY surprised when he saw I was going to end up spending about $1800 on a washer and dryer *laugh* Frankly, I am too, but I figure I have been spending $1000 a month on preschool, and I don't have to do that anymore, so for a few months, I'm going to spend it on things I've been needing for a while, and then start saving up for new mini-van next year.

Oooo...so jealous. I really wanted a $2k set of front-load machines, but alas, it just wasn't in our budget. If the old washer had died on MY schedule, and not its own, I might have been able to get the fancy machines. Whoa is me. ;)

(But lucky you! Can I come over sometime and stare at them?)

*laugh* Sure, bring your king sized comforter, your load of 22 full-size towels, your load of 16 pair of blue jeans. I can take it!!!! Bring it on! :)

The only reason I am 'able' to afford these is because the money was already in my budget ($1000 a month) for their preschool. June was my last payment, so I'm keeping the preschool budget for a while. Bought the washer and dryer. I want to save about $500-1000 each month towards a down payment on a new mini-van, and use the rest to pay off some debt.

And, most important of all, I've got some money budgeted for my trip with GS, whatever we end up doing. Looks like everyone backed out of the Florida trip, but we're not going to let us stop us from celebrating the end of her treatment :)

Yeah, with that huge preschool expense out of the way, I am sure your budget feels wide open now. I am trying to prepare for the day when we have to pay double daycare to the tune of $1100 or so...so the worst is still ahead of us. Unless we can't get pregnant again or decide not to, after all.

Enjoy! That's awesome!!! And, YAY for extra $$$$ when another expense goes away! That's great that you'll be able to save up for a new van as well!
