Save Money on Appliance Repairs and Parts

Last year, when we moved in to our new house I was so thrilled to have more updated appliances. I looked through the manual for our fridge (I know, I’m weird) to see what everything did as they previous owners cleaned everything out and placed some of the accessories inside the fridge so we would find them.

As I flipped through the manual, I discovered all of the extra parts that were not added on when this refrigerator was originally purchased. We all have different needs when buying appliances, and I found out that I did not need some of the things the previous owner did, and would have rather had other accessories instead.

But what can you do? What is done is done, right?


I found out about and it has opened up a whole world of opportunities. Now I can look for the accessories I want in our fridge and buy them separately instead of secretly hoping our fridge goes on the fritz so I can get the one extra shelf I secretly want.

There re so many benefits to a site like this and it can save you a lot of money. Now thinking back, I wish I knew about this site when I broke the filter on our dishwasher. Just buying the part and replacing it ourselves would have saved us about $150.
