Live Without: A Microwave

Live Without: A Microwave

We could all stand to declutter here and there, but have you ever considered getting rid of those modern day conveniences we so heavily rely on? Don't get me wrong, microwaves are amazing, but when faced with limited counter space one has to decide: to reheat or not to reheat?

If you're strapped for surface space, one obvious solution is to mount your microwave. But even under the counter room can be hard to come by.

Some inventive quick cookers have found ways to hide the bulky beasts. But that's precious grocery storage.

At first, I missed my microwave all too often. Soup cans just stared back at me. I couldn't pop popcorn during commercial breaks. And microwave meals collected freezer burn. But then I rekindled my love affair with…the stove. Yes ladies and gentleman, the multifunctional stove heats up soup in minutes flat! Revitalizes leftovers with the twist of a knob! It can even make toast (eliminating the need for a toaster, but that's another day).

So to recap, microwaves good. But if you're looking for approximately 1.6 of extra cubic feet of space, consider ditching the box and picking up some Jiffy Pop.
