Who says our kids need so many toys they don't know what to do with? And why oh why do we have so many clothes? So many dishes? How do I change all of that? When we moved, Jared and I got rid of so much stuff and you know what? I didn't die! It felt amazing. We could get rid of more. Stuff means clutter and clutter stresses me out. My husband may disagree as I'm not always the first to put everything away, but if I know it all has a place to go, at least I'm not stressed out about it :)
There's something really attractive about living in 700 square feet, even with kids and a baby. It would mean we would love everything we owned or get rid of it. Everything would be useful and serving a purpose. It would force us to live more simply and purposefully.
So maybe I use a french press everyday instead of having a coffee pot on my kitchen counter...it doesn't sound so bad. As for my boys continuing to share a room, I don't think we could split them up if we tried.
I'd love to hear your comments either here or on the facebook page! What do you think about small space living? Have you ever lived in such a small space? Would you ever try it?
