How often do you buy a major appliance?

I guess the answer for most people is when I need to..The answer for some people though is they are renting and it is included with the rent. I bought a small size freezer a few months ago, but I was just looking at an attractive fridge with a bottom drawer on it thta I don't currently have. It was at Sam's Club. There are things I definitely want to buy first...but I think I am gonna have to put that on the list. Although I don't desperately need one, I could use a new fridge for sure. This one was such a horror though when I first got it it kept breaking..fortunately it was under warranty. The last guy that came out put in a new control panel and it has worked fine for 10 years. I would love to upgrade though. Also, my DW give me fits..if I could get one that had a self cleaning filter I would be thrilled. Appliances anyone?

We bought new appliances when we gutted and remodeled our kitchen in CT and our condo in Florida. We last bought a new washer and dryer 2 years ago or so. Hope we are good for a long time.

I hope so. I bought a dryer a couple of years ago..and I was afraid I would need to buy a washer too, but it seems good for now. I might also need a tankless water heater at some point..

@DianneN It sure is. Houses and cars are always needing money poured into them it seems.

I buy when I need, we own the house, we bought new appliances when we bought and everything is still working. We bought an additional freezer last year, because I wanted one more to store food when we noticed less food on the shelves during the lockdown.

We haven't bought anything new recently except for an Air Fryer. Does that count? Just about everything else is around 16 years old so maybe new ones aren't too far down the track.

Yes, you are lucky to have gotten that much use out of them..but you aren't really home that much.

My fridge is making noise so I wouldn't be surprised if it was the next appliance I will have to buy (knock on wood ) but if money was no object I'd probably want a new stove first. I've already had to replace my washer and dryer in the past few years.

I had to get a new fridge a few months ago. because mine stopping cooling. This fridge is smaller than my old one, but I love it. I also had to buy a new microwave, but it was shorting out.

I think I would need to buy washing machine first. Already collect certain amount of money. Won't be long until I got one at a decent price.
