For awhile now, I have been trying to go through our house and get rid of things we no longer need/use/want, or things that we just simply don't have room for anymore. We still have some big things that belonged to Mom that I have struggled with getting rid of, but I am now in the "OPEN THE DOOR, IT'S GOING OUT!" mode.
I was talking to my friend the other day, and she was telling me that she found a house that both her and her husband fell in love with. She said it is BIG, which is wonderful since they are in a small house right now. However, she said that she has a lot of stuff but not enough to fill up this new house. "Don't worry about it. It will look like you have "SIMPLIFIED" your life!" I said. I told her that now I know how to make it look like I have gotten rid of a ton of stuff in my life........"I JUST NEED TO BUY A BIGGER HOUSE!" lol
Well, that got me thinking. Now that the girls are married and gone, and it is now just the three of us......do we really need a 5 bedroom home? Do we really need all this? Does all this "stuff" make my life any easier? That much more meaningful? Are my kids going to want all these
I was trying to figure out, if we did buy another house.....just how much room we would actually need. So, I decided to do a little "surfing" to see what kind of small houses were out there. I came across a site called Tumbleweed Houses. I can't believe that someone could actually live in such small spaces, but they are, and they are LOVING IT!
I found a couple of video tours that I thought you might be interested in seeing. I was AMAZED...and INSPIRED to downsize as much as I can.
This one is COOL!
