Settling?

A local store has an amazing offer on front loading washer & dryers.  Buy the washer, get the matching dryer for free!!  DH said I could look at them :)  I had really wanted to get a colored set (probably gray, stainless or turquoise), but I am not sure how long I will have to wait until we can afford the colored ones.  What do you think...should I settle for white?  They still look really nice & are a HUGE improvement over what I have right now.  And plus...$850 for a brand new washer & dryer is crazy!!  IDK!!  I should also mention that although we could swing these right now, we are also going to Aruba in 4 weeks & I know the extra $ would come in handy!!  WWYD?


Here are the sets that are available:

OMG I would jump all over that! Of course, my dreams are of a front load washer, not a colored washer. Different dreams for different folks.

I know I am so, so tempted!!  I have been so out of control with spending lately though & we have to get plates for our new car right before our trip & I also don't want to have to watch every penny in Aruba.  Ugh, IDK what to do...I have no self-control when it comes to these things :/

I love the white ones, you can jazz up the room with accessories for pops of color instead!! :)  Then if the whole colored appliances trend changes, you won't have something that looks dated in a few years. :)  Think those BEAUTIFUL moss green refridgerators from the 70's! ;)


Another cute idea I just had was maybe you could get some vinyl decals and add those on for something fun?  Might be super cute, but not permanent.  KWIM?

Yes, I had pinned the vinyl decals awhile back, I do like that option.  I wouldn't really think stainless or gray would go out anytime soon though.  I guess I just need to go and look, who knows if they are out of stock or I just don't like them in person...why can't it be tax return time ;)

Oh no, the stainless or grey would be great!! :)  But a brighter color like aqua is something I'd maybe think twice about- though I do LOVE aqua, as you know. :)

It didn't work out :(  They were out of the cheaper ones & although I loved the silver color & all the amazing features on the more expensive one, I couldn't convince him.  Plus our Audi is leaking something all of a sudden so I am sure that will be an expensive repair, since it always is :/  Ugh, hopefully they will have another killer deal before x-mas!!

I'd wait and buy what you really want.  And quality is a big factor to me, so wait and save for the pricy ones or hopefully a sale will come up!  I also like the idea of buying white or silver, then buying colored decals to add that *pop*.  That way if the colors aren't trendy one day you can easily change that :)
