Moving to smaller quarters...

After moving my daughter this week and living in small quarters while we did it I have come to the conclusion that less is definitely more.

If you are a regular reader of my blog then you also know that I have a daughter who is 8 years old. Who really doesn't have a care in the world and wants for nothing. She has too much. So much that at times she is overwhelmed with what to play with. As we are purging and cleaning out stuff and she is choosing stuff to keep I find that she is actually more at ease and playing with what we are keeping.

I think this move is going to be so good for her. So freeing in a sense with less in her life it is going to make her life definitely more if you will. Now for me well I did do a mini purge in my kitchen and I had a purge box/bin and a keep box when I was done the keep box was EMPTY, yes me I had an empty box and it felt so good. Of course there are things that are for sure coming with me but if it was just a trinket item and added no value to my life well lets just say it is finding another home.

As we are on our purge and move journey you will find more blog posts on this topic because well it's just my life... at the moment.

Have you ever thought to move to smaller quarters? Our plan is to move from a 6 bedrooms house with a pool to a 2 or 3 bedroom apartment. Are you up for the challenge?
