    Default Your top 3 household items that need replacing?

    For me:

    - A new entertainment unit/TV stand. Our current 'arrangement' isn't really suitable

    - Fridge - ours is old, a little cruddy and probably uses more electricity than it should

    - Vacuum cleaner - it's a cheapy that's starting to fall apart. Oh how I dream of upgrading to a Dyson

    Dysons are awesome! You should definitely get one if you can afford it. I reckon a second hand one would still be pretty good... they last so long.

    Here's mine.

    Our fridge. It's 3rd hand and small. Who doesn't love a good game of fridge tetris though?

    Our tv is so old that it's become a running joke. It has survived 3 interstate moves, including a fall and actually has fantastic sound quality so we will see how much longer we can make do.

    Hmmm, pretty happy otherwise. I wouldn't mind a bigger washing machine though!

    Everything is less than 2 years old, other than our washing machine that my ILs gave to us (only 3 yrs old now) and I want to upgrade that purely because I want a front loader.

    I want to get rid of dd's toddler bed and get a single bed for her, but will do that towards the end of year.


    Oh, and the vacuum... I want a dyson!

    Fridge - Ours is so small, 230L and we have to do two half shops a week, not everything fits otherwise! Rug - Just gross, shag gross gross gross. Matress - Old, squeaky and only just comfortable enough to sleep on. None of these will be replaced for a looong time though so I try not think about them. :P

    My washing machine leaks and the door of my tumble dryer is off its hinges. My oven burns everything, unless I have it on really really low, but then it doesn't cook properly. So yeah, those three!
