Small house = less stuff. For some time, I've been telling the DH that downsizing to a small house is the way to go. He's onboard 100%, but getting there is of course another matter. But, it is fun to think about and certainly has it's perks. To name a few.....
Small house = less to clean
Small house = little yard = less to mow
Small house = less property tax
Small house = less insurance needed
Small house = less utility bills
Now that I have you thinking, tell me what's not to like about living "small"?
Small house = less to clean = have more free time
Small house = little yard, less to mow = more woods for birds and habitats
Small house = less property tax = OMG who doesn't want to pay less tax!
Small house = less insurance = you have to have it, so pay as little as possible
Small house = less utility bills = oh how I hate to pay Progress energy
Small house = less stuff = well, less clutter and that = a very good thing!
Do you know most people work just to pay their mortgages? And that you will spend 20-30 years of your life doing just that? Hmmmmmm
See less is more...to coin a well known phrase. I tell ya....I'm likin the idea!
