“…at least I have my good appliances.”

nice applianceMaybe I listen to too much WBUR (although, as someone who writes about and works in Cambridge, I suppose I ought to consider that impossible), but I think Radio Boston host David Boeri dug up a great soundbite from a Dorchester shopper on today’s Morning Edition.

Customer: I’ve been planning this kitchen for four-to-five years, so I saved for my appliances.

David: And your decisions now aren’t affected by your, by whats going on…

Customer: No.

David: …in the world around…?

Customer: Because it’s gonna get better. You just have to be patient. It’s gonna get better, and at least I have my good appliances.

So really, I don’t think I have to say anything more than that. Nice appliances, people. In these times of economic uncertainty, they matter. These open houses have them. The time to buy is now.

    good appliances = under-rated asset. I might cash in my 401k just to buy some appliance-related stability in these uncertain times.

    I don’t think there’s going to be enough left of my 401k to buy anything worth installing. Not counting today, I’m down 20% on the year.
