D- to the -Ish Washer

Kev and I are always in search of deals. Since we moved into the Little House, we’ve been scouring deal sites for stainless steel appliances, bathroom tile, cork flooring…  anything, in short, that we want for the LH. Our agreement is that if one of us finds an “incredible, unbelievable deal” we have the okay to pull the trigger, delve into the home improvement fund, and make the purchase (as long as it’s returnable).

Kevin was browsing the Sears Outlet website on Friday when he came across one of our biggest wants: a stainless steel dishwasher. It was a refurbished return; there were no visible defects, dents, scratches, or malfunctions– and it was only $190.

Needless to say, we snatched it up, loaded it into the explorer, and several hours of drain hose wrangling later, we had this beauty gleaming up as us. Not bad for $225 after tax and install parts (especially when it regularly costs $699 from Sears).

Isn’t she purty?

What deals have you scored lately? Do you ever look at clearance websites like Sears Outlet? Have you ever installed a dishwasher? We were surprised by how easy it was.

    I want to find a dishwasher deal like that!! I was just looking at them the other morning (ours is not the most reliable) and no “bargains” that I found came close to yours. It’s a beautiful dishwasher, too! (Add that to the list of things I never thought I’d say.) 😛

    GREAT DEAL! I want all stainless steel appliances, but right now with our budget, it is just not in the cards, so we settle for whtie. I hate white appliances. But maybe I can find some sweet deals like you two. Congrats
