Washer and Dryer Sale TipsThere really
nothing better than finding a washer and dryer sale happening.
I mean who really wants to pay retail? I
don’t know anyone who likes to do so, well unless you have more money than you know what to do with, than it
just does not matter if you buy then on sale.
But before run out and buy a washing machine and
clothes dryer just because they are on sale. Here are some tips very well worth considering in your washer and

the dryer that the clothes are dry. Any other timed dryer can cost you 10% to 20% more in energy
