So our old place didn’t have a dishwasher and the new house does and I’m still not over how revolutionary and amazing and life enhancing it is to have a dishwasher! All that time spent rinsing and washing and drying dishes is now condensed into a really small amount of time that doesn’t even feel like a chore. We had a housewarming on the weekend and thanks to the dishwasher, the clean-up was a breeze! Every night we look at our clean kitchen and go “wow, dishwashers are awesome, how did we used to cope without one?!”

Then it struck me this is basically the perfect metaphor for how having money makes life easier.
