I've been packing for a few weeks now and I've noticed how much stuff we're not living with. (ie. extra sheets, certain dishes, books, toys, games) If we really need this stuff, we don't seem to be missing it one single bit.
Part of me just wants to chuck all our boxes into a ditch.
I mean, we are downsizing after all.
Lots of people have been asking if we are moving to a bigger house. (I guess when you have three kids, people assume you need more room, not less.)
|The first house Husband and I ever owned. That was SIX houses ago...|
My stock answer is:
"Smaller house, smaller mortgage!"
People seem to like that response, and I don't have to say anything after that.
So I think everyone should move for the following reasons:
- you can get rid of your
crap, I mean your stuff.
- you can be content with less.
- you have less to dust (or store, or wash...)
- most importantly you'll realize you're not as materialistic as you thought you were. ;)
