No microwave and I use my regular oven maybe 4 times a year. My little convection oven does it all-toast, rewarm, cook,etc. I love it. Have two bikes and a scooter. I do have a car but so rarely drive it. In fact, my friend has had it for the last few weeks (hope it is still our there somewhere); we are sort of car sharing. For years have used soda, vinegar and simple soap for cleaning. No paper towels for at least 15 years.Major reduction of body product-usually make my own.

I live without air conditioning, but live in the Bay Area and it rarely gets hot. I also don't use my heater because I get direct sun and I tend to "run hot." I don't have a microwave and I line dry all my wash. I have a dishwasher but could go without as I only use it once a week at the most. I COULD NOT live without an ipod. I commute on public transport and it is necessary. Also, cell phone is the only phone but I do need it.

Perceived obsolescence. Everyone should watch "The Story of Stuff" which is a free internet movie. It will open up your eyes to what we have been a victim to as consumers.

You guys are so helpful. I wish I could "see" things the way you all do. I have a lot to consider (on a wee budget) but I see it as a challenge, which I like. BTW, the TV isn't attached and I don't like the shelf thing it is on. This is all just a temporary arrangement.
THe wall color does look lame in this picture. I moved it to the place with it like that. In fact, there are many colors in the place- some cool, some goofy.
I get overwhelmed sometimes and constantly second guess myself but your advise it sage and I appreciate it all!
Keep them coming!

To "parttimedesign"-do you think if I used the wall unit on this website
(go to bottom of page to see it)

and a leaning shelf on the other, that would be okay? Is that breaching a symmetry rule??

Owner here. Thanks for the great suggestions and complements on the piece-a craigslist find.Currently, the credenza houses my 300 albums, a DVD player and my CDs. There isn't enough room for the componentry and I figured it would be better to hide cluttery stuff in there. I tried every configuration. Both dark pieces are going to a friend and the album pix are already down.I do have a new coffee table that is mdc. I was wondering if those leaning/ladder shelves, one on both side, might work? What do you all think?
Also, the desktop is going to be donated as I will be getting a lap top-that was my solution for the computer. You guys are great to help me out!

I use vinegar in a downy ball in the wash and baking soda to soften water as it fills. I line dry.
