A few days ago I decided to find out if I was the only one who wanted to downsize or if there were others with me. Of course that meant a poll.
I asked for votes regarding this statement:
"My DREAM house would be (Bigger or Smaller) than my current house."
The choices were:
- Bigger. I enjoy having plenty of space.
- Downsizing would be ideal for me.
SEVENTY-SEVEN percent of the votes went to choice #1. I was definitely outnumbered.
One voter DID share my penchant for reducing that square footage. Yay! I was not alone! I did notice that those who voted for "bigger" weren't exactly wanting to double their spaces or anything. Generally the comments were about things being just a little bit bigger. These were from people whose houses were under (some, well under) 1500sf.
Yesterday my husband noticed an article in a magazine about an empty-nest couple wanting to downsize. I was all excited about reading it until he let me know that their NEW, "tiny" house was 2600sf.
