You know, I think I could easily do without tv. Although there are a few shows that I love watching. But I think I would have a hard time letting go of the internet, but above all, I would definitely miss not having a stereo. If I didn't have tv or internet I would have to have a stereo! Now that I've had a dishwasher for awhile that would be hard to let go of too!

I guess in the end, I could do without all of those things, but I would have to take up something interesting and something to keep me EXTRA occupied... it's awful, tv, and internet, and all those wonderful luxury things just make life so much "easier" but really, it makes you lazy... or it CAN make people lazy.

At the moment I could really do without a second car as my car is sitting in the carport doing nothing and wasting my money because my boss has given me a company vehicle to drive. I'd die without my garden, my sewing machine, my broadband, and my digital camera. All of these things keep me sane.

chillin,

I love your story about your friends mom. My mom was like that, she wanted 'things' because her neighbors in her building had them, but she would never use them. I would get so excited when I bought these conveniences for her--she always said that she really liked them. I finally caught on that she never used her electric can opener, her new television, the blender she just had to have. There were countless things that she did not use.

I agree that the internet can be far more interesting than television--I love instant answers to my questions and wonderings (is that a word?)

pinklulu,

Wow! just wow (LOL) One thing for sure, I will never feel odd again. I will watch my 2 13-inch (one b/w) televisions with pride. (smiling)

I think they are going to discover in the future that microwaves are not good for you. If we know they give off radiation, then don't you think that some might be in the food that we eat too??

I can do without absolutely everything I currently have.

I can't do without love. Love of my wife and children. Love of my parents and relatives. Love of my God and brethren. Love of my friends and enemies (ok... I can do without the love of my enemies).

But one thing I can do without is a car.

My friends think I am crazy as it is not as if I cannot afford one... but life is simpler and cheaper without a car.

Wow Vance - hope you don't have to do the dishes for the next month! LOL

I wish I could live without a car, but I live in a remote area, and have to drive everywhere, unless I want to steal groceries from my neighbors. LOL

At this point I could do without malls - they frustrate me!

I love this question posed. Yes we have done without a microwave and still ate smile I remember living in europe and had no TV for 2 years and survived. I can live without most mod cons as long as I have my crafts around me and my bible. Sounds quirky but gee the simple way of living seems to produce alot of happy people in society I found.
I seriously can do without those catelogs that crowd the letterbox I am definitely over that.
I can do without mean spirited people in the world and those senseless acts of crime in society that I shake my head and wonder what where they thinking. Have a nice one and keep smiling.

I can manage just fine without designer clothing, new cars or fancy vacations but don't mess with my internet connection, library visits or certain television channels. I like my information resources more than keeping up with the Joneses, I suppose.
