White Goods

Out with the old and in with the new. In an impulse purchase that we had planned for months Alex stopped by the white goods section of a department store when on a baby cloths mission. She picked up a low water use front loader washing machine with more technology than the space shuttle and a bigger, quieter more enviro-friendly dryer than the old one. With shop deals, credit card points, cash back from the manufacturer for a double purchase and from the government for a water efficient purchase they almost paid us to buy them.
Anybody local want to buy a used washer and dryer?
Now, if only we can get a pair of expedition sea kayaks in the same manner.

We just bought us a 36 foot city bus to convert to a motorhome and travel around the East Coast of Australia Initialy. Do you think we could deck it out in stuff at a great low cost like you got your white goods at? Ebay will be our port of call first. It is unreal teh deals places are doing and at this time of the year with the stock take sales we could all alomost take the stock and they pay us..for sure, LOL!!!

I'm jealous. I want a washer like that.

Incidentally, the fact that I day dream about having a specific kind of washer makes me feel very old and uncool.

Hamish and Leesha - I'll try the uni notice boards first, EBay is too confusing.

Cazzie - a little young to be joining the Grey Nomads?

Libby - :-) I write computer code and manage geeks for a living, I'll never be cool.
