Moving to a smaller place.

Lets just point out the differences to get an idea:

1) Current Kitchen + Dining room will have to fit in a Dine-in Kitchen.

2) Current Big Living Room + Big Den will have to fit in Small Living Room

3) All the crap in the shed will have to fit in... oh well, no shed.

4) Stuff in carport will have to fit in a side porch half the size.

Now the good things.

1) One and a half bathrooms will become 2 full bathrooms. No more kid fight about who takes a shower first, they can both go in.

2) Closer to kids school and just 300 meters away from kids daycare.

3) Cheaper by 20%.

Definitely some crap will have to go on yard sale or get tossed. But with great organizational skills and smart space usage, it should work just fine.

On another thought. The savings is not gonna be just the rent. A smaller place is easier to cool down or heat up. I expect the energy bill to be a lot lower.

Is the kitchen big enough to do car repairs in?

can you just save the time of the monthly packing, loading and unloading and just arrange your stuff in the moving van where it is usable? Will lose the two bathrooms, but think of the savings and convenience.

Just noticed I can sale a lot of drapes. I have 19 windows in here, the new place has only 5. Less heat coming ion during summer, less heat escaping out during winter.

Not to worry Hombre:
Put shed/carport items into trunk/back seat of Hyundai.
Build a loft in liv.(2x4s and plywood) to create an elevated den.
Place kitchen table/automotive bench outside to create dramatic dining el fresco.
Private bath to lock door and scan tassel twirlers on the web with your lap top(priceless).
Heat bills?,give me a break.
