All that and a bag of chips

Last week, I got a new LG high capacity, front-loading washer to replace my 7-year-old high efficiency much smaller machine.
The funny thing is that I have yet to fill it all the way up to full capacity! It has a fun feature where it weighs the load first, then tells you the size, so you can fill it with the correct amount of detergent before it runs. This morning I was determined to fill it up. I had both girls strip their beds and we put sheets from their beds, including mattress pads....and it still was only 1/2 full.
This thing is a MONSTER!
And I am lovin' that I don't have to do laundry as often. Another feature I love is that it displays the time remaining for the entire cycle, so you always know when it will be done. It works for the planner in me.It is most definitely "all that and a bag of chips," to me!!
Now if I could just convince my Hubby that I need the matching high-capacity dryer.... wish me luck!

Oh my that is a dream come true for me! I want a set of those myself!!! Enjoy that beautiful piece of happiness.

I agree with Salena!! I sold mine when we moved in the hopes that they will be my welcoming home present when we move to our next home!! I can only imagine what it's like to have less laundry to do!!

Oh, I'm sure it won't be too long b4 a dryer will crap out in one of the houses & you'll have your matching dryer!!

I love Rose's optimism! Yes a matching dryer is a must! You don't want to have to dry your freshly washed sheets in batches do you?

Oh I have almost the same as you... laundry is such fun all of a sudden!
Thanks for adding our blinkie!

LOVE IT! I hope to upgrade to one of these babies some day. My washer and dryer were bought in our house at 402 Dogwood so let's see...that makes them about 10 years old. Maybe 11 I'm not 100% sure of the date.
