Welcome to our website!

However, if you are an American with a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at (615) 735-0165 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for any American with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

It’s common knowledge that items like your toothbrush, or household essentials like eggs and milk need to be replaced often. But have you ever thought about replacing other items around your house that you have been around for awhile and never replaced at all?

We’re here to give you the inside scoop on what the average lifespan is for certain essentials you have in your home.

1. Mattresses

Finding the perfect mattress is like finding your soulmate; once you find it, you fall in love, and you don’t ever want to let go. But sadly, love may last longer than your mattress. Your mattress should be replaced every 5-10 years.

2. Pillows

Whether it’s the pillow you lay your head down on at night, or the pillow that sits on your sofa and accents the living room, both should be replaced at least every six months. But, if you take really good care of them, they may last you up to three years.

3. Washers/Dryers

If possible, you should try to get ahead of the game and replace your washer and dryer before they start acting up and not cleaning your clothes to the best of their abilities. We know that it IS an investment, but we advise you to get a new washer and dryer every 10-12 years. That is, unless you invest in a brand like Speed Queen, which can last up to 25 years!

4. Sofas

Finding the perfect sofa for your living room takes time and dedication. After about 3-5 years, sofas tend to sink in, which can cause bad posture and back pain. Don’t let your sofa be the cause of pain!

5. Refrigerators

If last night’s dinner looks defrosted in the morning, or you start noticing your fridge making noises, you have a refrigerator problem on your hands and better go catch a new one! How old is too old? You’ll probably want to start looking for a new one after 10-12 years, as a rule of thumb.

6. Microwaves

Microwaves typically last around nine years. However, it depends on the brand and how often you use it. Microwaves can be repaired, but it might be more cost efficient to get a new one, and recycle the old one!
