Savings Day – Downsize
It’s Build Your Savings Day. Downsizing could be the key!
The “bigger the better” is a myth, and we see it in meal portions, vehicles and houses. Unfortunately, 50% of our budget goes towards housing and transportation costs.
In her book, Downsize: Living Large in a Small House, Sherri Koones shares about living well with less. She moved from a nearly 7,000 square-foot home into a 1,400 square foot home, and like others, she found it liberating.
Scripture says: “…godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.” (1 Timothy 6:6-7)
Moving down could be your next move up!
