Not only are we saving money on our mortgage that we’ve already been able to put toward a vacation, but we’re playing WAYYYYY fewer utilities and haven’t used our second car in a week!! And even with a crazed, energetic toddler, AND a dog, we haven’t missed our yard. I think when you make a move like this, you ACCEPT that you need to take the dog/baby out on outings, and it becomes your lifestyle, and it’s actually FUN.
Bonus: we’re getting an amazing workout, walking to our nearby coffee shops and restaurants, and feeling IN THE MOMENT as we marvel at the simplicity and efficiency of our new life! We’ve had surprisingly tons more family time by cutting out excessive errands/space from our old life. It’s amazing how downsizing affects everything, and improves your relationships. Perhaps because there’s less to stress about, and more to appreciate?
Moving was easy because we downsized slowly over a few months, so we only took with us stuff we really treasured/needed!
Now, everything in our new house has a place, it all fits perfectly, and we have STORAGE TO SPARE!
Now, ill be sharing tips for downsizing/organizing your home and how to make the most of a small space. You’ll even here about my balcony garden.
Cheers to new, better beginnings!
