I held off on getting a dishwasher for so long, but I finally cracked once my kids hit teenage years. Every time they want a drink they seem to use a new glass and I seemed to spend half the day washing the dirty dishes they leave around. Now it's their job to fill the dishwasher and I finally think they are realising how many dishes they generate and I'm finally feeling more relaxed. My husband loves getting new gadgets and I think I might start following. Maybe there are other great time saving appliances out there that I didn't know about!
