Giving away our microwave!
My husband recently bought a new kettle, in bright red. Then he got a coffee grinder in bright red. Then utensil pots, and storage jars, and utensils, and everything he can possibly find that is red. Including a microwave.
Meaning that our perfectly functional silver microwave was surplus to requirements.
My mum came round and I asked her where to 'get rid of it' to (she volunteers in one of the local charity shops and can usually find a home for anything). She thought for a bit, and thought of one of her friends, who we know too. And he doesn't have a microwave, and is currently quite ill and stuck in the house, and physically tired a lot. So she phoned him, and he thought it was wonderful (e.g. so he can zap food in 3 minutes rather than have to stand to cook for however long).
So I've loaded it in to the boot of her car, for her to drop off when next she sees him. She said to me 'he asked what you want for it' and I replied 'all we want is the knowledge that it's going to a home where it will be appreciated'.
I'm happy because we now have a hallway back, and for being able to make someone else happy
