Since moving to a tiny house, I’ve learned just how popular downsizing, tiny houses, and what feels like a new idea about living has seized the public imagination.
First it is now a fairly regular topic for AARP with this article in my mail box today: Downsizing? Ditch These 12 Items. I am making an A on this list so far. The latest endeavor being to get rid of my storage area. Remember, when I started this new life in February, I said until I got rid of storage I cannot say that I truly have downsized.
Last weekend found me consolidating again, with lots of recycling multiple copies of items such as my dad’s death certificate, etc. With digitization, who needs ANY copy?
Not having a TV – part of downsizing and also saving me from my addiction to surfing the channels – I have not watched them. I am just living it. But, maybe I should. I might learn how to get rid of storage.
More on this later as I go through box after box of the hard stuff: out of 50 of the funniest birthday cards from my son, which do I keep? AARP suggests one or two and digitize the rest. What do you think?
