I love it! I was hooked as soon as the other bee gave me the details. Our place is the same size as yours and I have a major aversion to “stuff” I hate clutter etc and am always trying to clear this place out. 

But like anyone I am prone to trying to compare my life with others who might have a bigger house or whatever. I truely think that is the route to unhappiness in life so am happy with what we have which is a lot more than most people and a lot to be thankful for!

my new house is a little bigger, only 990 sq ft, and it seems huge to me! That might have somehting to do with the fact that the places ive lived in alone before were small rv’s, and one was a 30-ft park model travel trailer, but still, even with three or four in there, i still think it would seem huge. It seems to take forever to go from the kids bath to my bath, on opposite ends of the trailer.

We’re looking at buying a smaller home, mostly because that’s what’s prevalent in this area and what’s in our price range (though, unfortunately, most of them only come with a 1-car garage). 

I have an aversion to clutter, as well, so I’m constantly tossing things that we haven’t used/worn in a while in a pile to go to Goodwill, and towels, blankets, and sheets that I want to get rid of get donated to the local animal shelter. I’ve been pinning lots of organization blogs/posts just for this occasion, actually–I can link that board after work if you want.

@TheSpoons:  I second that! I have lived in much smaller places that here and so am very appreciative of the space, even if it is probably small by some peoples standards!
