Tackle It Tuesday: Microwave (Updated to Join Works For Me Wednesday)
I broke our microwave the other day. I was going to heat up a cup of water, when I closed the door of the microwave I heard a snap - then, wala! it broke! - I mean the door wouldn't open!
So hubby came to the rescue and tackled it. Well, he was not able to tackle it completely because a part was broken and needs to be replaced. He went to some appliance parts store online and found a part - it w0uld only cost us $5.00. the problem was, the shipping cost to Maui is $30!!!! I kid you not! So for a $5 part we have to pay for $30 shipping - no way! We then turned to Ebay - the good trusted Ebay, and we were able to find the parts with a lower shipping cost.
So the tackle is to be continued until the parts arrive. While waiting for the part, let's go to 5 Minutes For Moms to check on otehr tacklers :)
As I was thinking of what to share for this week's Works For Me Wednesday, I got reminded that EBAY worked for us in this situation. It saved us money and provided the much needed part for our microwave. And so I say EBAY works!
