When I hear the word downsizing it often conjures up visions of children growing up and heading off to college. I see mother and father staring at one another inside a once necessary home that has suddenly just become a headache to two people who are ready to start living again. The fact is, people of all walks of life are seeing the benefits of taking a decrease in their footprint and economic obligations.
This article is a great representation of how you can begin your own journey towards downsizing. I liked the fact that the author said that having less is not always the same as downsizing. We often get this idea that we must live in a box with one chair and hat to live a minimalistic lifestyle.
