Come next month we will have been with out a stove for a year (do to a gas leak and an ancient appliance the last owner left for us). And I must say, I don't miss it. It has caused me to really plan our meals and i'm getting a great deal of use out of my oster oven that can easily accommodate a 16 inch pizza. Recently I have gone a step further by selling out washer and dryer (more on that shortly). And i'm also enthralled by the idea of down sizing our fridge!
