Do You Really Need That?

Do You Really Need That?

The Pew Research Center recently released findings about people's change in belief between 2006 and 2009 about which household objects they really NEED. For example, in 2006 68% of respondents said they needed a microwave, compared with only 47% in 2009. More results after the jump...

It so happens that we relinquished our microwave in that time period and honestly we don't really miss it. We just use a steamer basket in a pot on the stovetop to reheat food!

Have you already or are you considering letting go of things that at one time seemed imperative to have? We'd love to hear about it!
