Fridge & Washing Machine
I finally purchased a fridge and washing machine for my flat at the Vue Grande in Melbourne. At my age I can not believe I have never purchased one before but I have always rented my white goods in Australia and in England property has always come with them included.
I have been eating out a lot as I could not buy any food that needed to be refrigerated so the fridge should pay for itself within two months. I also paid a bit extra for a shiny look rather than the plain white ones and it looks really good in my flat.
I also added a very futuristic washing machine which plays a lovely song when it is finished and as long as I keep the instruction book close by I should be able to work out what each setting does. I have been outsourcing my cleaning to the launderette so this should also pay for itself within two months.
