What a PITA. We rent ours. It costs more, but they haul away the old one and it includes a really good service plan.

I pinned a recipe from Pintrest for raspberry chipoltle sauce and want to give it a try. If it interests you, I can send you a link - it is from a blog!

I vote a refrigerator raspberry jam, or a raspberry sauce for topping ice cream. Could Peach Melba be on the menu soon?

I've never heard of renting a water heater. Interesting.
My garbage pickup will take mine away. It's hiding in the bushes now...

When I was a young-un, you could rent a water heater from the utility company. AFAIK, It's no longer an option.

I wouldn't worry about it. The basement should be able to hold quite a few old hot water heaters.

When my Dad got old his thing was stacking one TV on top of another. We tried for years to get him to let us take away his old wooden floor model and replace it with a table to hold the new TV, no dice!

It's not enough space and I have a lot of the stuff on carousels. Top shelf requires a step stool. It has the big jars.
A friend of mine used a drawer next to the stove for her spices...she used jars that could stand up in the drawer. Clever, but I have more spices than she had <g>. I transferred stuff to jars that are the same size so they fit in better. I am planning on putting a couple of "mop/broom" holder on the doors for those I use most often.

When The Pirate was working for a plumbing company, he was the one they always sent for water tank problems. One of the rules of the company was to take the old one out and bring it back to the company. They had a guy that would cut it down and sell the scrap metal. The Pirate always got part of the take for the metal since he was the one who convinced the owner to buy a new one. And he was the one who lugged it back. Win/Win.

I don't have a lot of drawers. My spices wouldn't fit, if I used all of them.
