What's NOT in your house?

There are some things you just expect to be in an average home. If the house has a yard, you expect to find a lawn mower in the garage or shed. You might not expect a lawn mower in an apartment or condo, but you would expect a vacuum cleaner. What common items do you NOT have?

In our house, you will not find:
dishwasher
coffee maker
game console
cable/satellite hookup
footstool
air freshener
echo, alexa, whatever it is
bathroom scale
ice trays
fabric softener/dryer sheets
laundry basket

Re: What's NOT in your house?

fabric softener
cable/satellite TV services
plastic straws (we bought metal ones like, 15 years ago)

I was going to put Bibles, but we do have them, they're just "heirlooms" at this point.

Alexa/Echo (my wife got an Ecobee thermostat installed, but she shut off the voice thing. )

Re: What's NOT in your house?

We have no pets in our house. Not because we're against having pets, but because my wife and I both work and our son is at school / daycare all day, so the animal would be alone all day.

Let's see, we don't have:

-cat or dog
-ashtrays

That's all I can think of right now.
