What? Their friends also have a family of 6, our kids are all pretty much the same age. They've been living without a microwave for years. All of a sudden I felt like I was not a part of some big slow food movement thing. I posted a little mention of this "experiment" on my Facebook and I was surprised how many don't have one or don't use the one they have. Of course I got responses like 'Umm just go to Walmart and get another one." "How did anyone survive before microwaves!"
We'll we're going to give it a try. So far no one has complained, except for me. I used to reheat my coffee a lot. A few think I'm insane but I'm an insane lady with a lot more counter space!
A microwave that dies after 6 months is just another "disposable" thing that I'm not interested in.
How about you? Do you have a microwave? Do you use it or does it just take up space? I'm really interested to know.
