I know I am getting slightly outrageous today but I just wanted to plant this thought.
Now that you have created space in your home do you really need it? That much space I mean. How many of us live in homes that are far to big for our needs.
Is your home just a status symbol with more rooms than you need that just cause you a whole lot of wasted time doing housework.
When I was a child with four siblings and a mum and dad, we all managed to live quite comfortably in a four bedroom house with one bathroom, a kitchen, a lounge room with a rumpus room under the house. One of the bedrooms was actually used as a spare room and Mum’s sewing room as she did dress making from home for extra cash.
When I was 21 we moved into a house with four bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a billiard room, a study, a kitchen and a formal dining room. At this stage three of my siblings had already left home. Now my parents have “downsized” to a house with four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a billiard room, a study, a lounge room, a kitchen and a dining area and they live together alone in this house.
I know my mum likes to think we can all fit into this house should we all come to visit at once but now that the grandchildren are growing up and starting to get married and have children of their own is she going to buy a hotel to fit everyone in.
It was just a thought, please don’t thing I have gone completely off the rails with the whole decluttering thing.
