12 Reasons Why You’ll Be Happier in a Smaller Home


For us it wasn’t a choice — we knew we HAD to live smaller or lose too much.

But lots of people do make the choice to live smaller — and the Becoming Minimalist blog has 12 good reasons to do so:

The first 3 we are already discovering in our small rental space:

  • Easier to maintain. Anyone who has owned a house knows the amount of time, energy, and effort to maintain it. All things being equal, a smaller home requires less of your time, energy, and effort to accomplish that task.
  • Less time spent cleaning. And that should be reason enough…
  • Less expensive. Smaller homes are less expensive to purchase and less expensive to keep (insurance, taxes, heating, cooling, electricity, etc.)

Read the whole post — and the comments –– for the complete story.

Speaking of blogs — I use a reader to skim through the blogs I subscribe to.  And for a few years I was quite happy to include dozens of decorating blogs.  It interests me and inspires me to see what other people are doing.

But no more.  As part of the minimal life we are working to lead, I unsubscribed from most of the decorating blogs.  It will soon be clear which ones I still follow.
