I saw an article in the local paper last week that really caught my eye -- a man was arrested in Sausalito because he was living in his small storage space.
The thing is, he wasn't supposed to be living in a storage space in the first place, let alone with...a bed, electricity, cable TV, and...168 bags of marijuana! My comment: smokin'!
So now that downsizing is chic, and is even a desirable goal if one is to "live smart" in these economic times, it boggles the mind to think that there are still mega-mansions with 18 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, and 3 rooms exclusively used for wrapping gifts.
Could you be happy living in a 300-square-foot apartment? Take a look at this video.
As my husband and I gingerly tackle the mammoth task of purging items and papers and clothes, oh my!, we are attempting to keep in mind that livin' small is ultimately a goal we'll be very, very happy to reach!
You know you have reached perfection of design not when you have nothing more to add, but when you have nothing more to take away. -- Antoine de St. Exupery, French writer (The Little Prince), 1900-1944
