Household Helpers

Hey, did anybody besides me get weird looks from walking around with cool-whip in my hair while holding a bowl of strawberries? I actually did try one of them this week. My son got a paper cut and used the chap-stick helper and it actually worked! Go figure.

This week I found a site that listed the average lifetime of household appliances. I thought it was pretty neat so I though I would pass along the info. If anything it might give you housewives out there the leverage you need to go appliance shopping! I SO want a set of those HE washer and driers!

The average lifespan of household appliances:

  • Central A/C 15 years
  • Room A/C 12 years
  • Dryer 18 years
  • Washing machine 13 years
  • Dishwasher 12 years
  • Refrigerator 20 years
  • Upright freezer 20 years
  • Stove 18 years
  • Water heater 13 years
Unfortunately I'm stuck with my fridge, stove, dishwasher, dryer, washer, freezer, and water heater for quite a few more years. So, if any of you get that shopping spree please think of me!
