One more item I purchased today, online between my morning eye appointment and my afternoon errands and shopping, was this.
Isn't she a beauty?! Once we get this thing installed, we will have replaced all of the major appliances in our house since we bought it four years ago. We have already replaced our water heater, air conditioner (inside and outside units), washer and dryer, refrigerator, and stove/oven. This dishwasher is the final piece for our collection of newer, more energy efficient, appliances.
We weren't planning on making this purchase right away, but for some reason our dishwasher has suddenly decided to not clean our dishes very well. And when I went online to see if Sears had any Bosch dishwashers, I found that they were having a 20% off sale on all of their high-efficiency or Energy Star appliances, plus no interest until April 2009 when you use a Sears card. I just couldn't pass up that deal!
The dishwasher was a special order item, so now I am just waiting for the email to let me know when we can go pick it up. Hopefully, it will be soon.
