Broken Things: Fix or Buy New?
My clothes dryer is not drying. It only has one simple task to perform and it is falling short. The other day I had to take two wet loads of clothes over to my son's place to dry.
Today I looked at washer/dryer sets online to begin the process of researching new ones to buy. Can you say overwhelming? So many choices, with so many features, and price tags to match.
So I called my trusty dryer repairman and he is on his way over to check out my machine. He was here a few months ago for essentially the same problem, so I am a little less hopeful that he can fix it for good this time. But it's worth a try even though both appliances have worked hard for more than 25 years.
I guess I consider this all part of the "recycling" rage these days. It fits in with that old slogan I love: Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.
