Never Fall for a Pretty Face

Another friend of mine found herself snapping up an entire suite of appliances because she loved the way their handles matched. Sure, you love those sexy grates and cunning knobs (see "Never make an impulse buy," previously). But when the electronic ignition on the range blows, leaving you with no way to cook on the day before Thanksgiving—or the icemaker quietly springs a leak, covering the floor with an inch of water, you will no longer recall that magic moment when you fell in love across a crowded showroom floor.
