Convinced you need a bigger house? Think again!
My wife shared a bedroom with 4 siblings in a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom house until she started school. That was not uncommon in the ‘50s.
More and more people are learning that less is more!
A smaller, affordable house typically costs less – and has lower utility bills, insurance and taxes. Less space means you’re limited in what you can accumulate and have o decorate. It can be easier and less costly to maintain and clean. And, you won’t have to downsize when the children leave home.
Until then, you’ve gotta learn to get along with each other – because you can’t escape. And, you have to learn to be organized.
Reducing housing costs can enable you to step back off the financial cliff. Just one month of lower housing expenses can reduce your stress. The savings add up over a year, two years, a decade and will allow you to give, save and invest in ways you never imagined! It’s an example to pass on to family and friends because many most need a good example modeled.
Close friends shared the blessing their small home gave each night when they could hear their 3 girls, whisper to each other “Good-night, Love You”
Jesus said, In my Father’s house are many rooms…if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. (John 14:3)
Knowing this, we can live here with far less and experience peace and contentment.
