- What I Love About My Small Home:
- It is a cute Key West cottage -- it forces me to be organized and neat. Takes 20 minutes to clean, saves on utilities, allows me to live in Key West; I am a senior citizen, I also have a sustainable garden, grow my own vegetables and fruits and have 5 hens for eggs. It allows me to stay on my budget and still be independent. They should design sustainable homes for older people instead of putting them in "OLD FOLKS HOMES".
- Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
- Storage, keeping my books and clothes. I use lots of baskets to store almost everything. I also have a MINI dog and use the stairs for my books.
I learned to get rid of things I have never used for a year, and donate my books and other household items to Salvation Army. Got an iPad2 for my reading, books and magazines -- no more Cable TV. Kept my CDs and sewing machine though.
