You might consider keeping the table saw, but get a bit more clever in how you store it. I’ve seen workbench designs that allow a table saw to fit under them.

Another idea to consider, and it adds to what MrRon said about a benchtop saw. You should look into the Paulk workbench. It’s a portable workbench that fits on saw horses. A benchtop saw can be hung on the side of it. Point is instead of just putting the saw on the bench top, it hangs on the side and the bench functions as the outfeed table.

I would find it very hard to get along without a table saw. But of course it depends on what you are actually doing and preferred work methods. And, obviously, woodworkers made things before table saws existed, so no one absolutely has to have one.
