A New Washing Machine for the Jewel Box™ Home

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
- Margaret Wolfe Hungerford


This is an LG 4.2 cubic foot white front load washing machine. Isn't it beautiful? This past Saturday, water started streaming from our washing machine mid-cycle and flooding the laundry room floor. After charging us $139.00, the repairman said it was beyond repair. Not good news, but it also meant I could go out and buy a new washer. Why did I choose the one pictured? Not because its an LG, although I do like that brand. This washing machine is stackable, which means you can attach the matching dryer to the top of the washer and use one-half the space of a side-by-side unit. As those of us in smaller homes know, when space is at a premium, a smaller footprint is a plus. So did I also buy the matching dryer? No, that will have to come later when my current dryer goes bust. But I am considering asking my husband to make it my Mother's Day gift. I will keep you posted.

And before I close, I have to recommend ABT Electronics in Glenview, Illinois where I bought my new washing machine. Their service is excellent, they will match any price and they have every brand you could ever want. If you live in the Midwest, especially in the Chicagoland area, there is no need to go anywhere else for appliances other than ABT.

Until next time,
Genevieve

Hi,

I just happened upon your site/blog and I am having a great time perusing your entries. I live in an 1800 s.f. 35 y.o. Colonial in Massachusetts. Not the golden age of architecture for sure, but we moved here 17 years ago and have raised 4 boys here with a bath and a half and they are all pretty well adjusted, if I do say so myself.

I think I will mention your blog in my blog sometime this week. Stop by!
