What is the advantage of SMALL? It forces me to prioritize my belongings...

What is the advantage of SMALL? CONT'D

...Because of lack of storage space I can't hold onto something for the sake of being to scared to throw it away. It needs to really mean something to me.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

Craigslist. If you can jump fast enough you can get some wonderful vintage furniture for steals. Craigslist is also a great way to find out about estate sales that are selling furniture.

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home?

The fact that I have no doors or walls except for the bathroom. It makes it feel open and airy. I love being able to sit in my office and talk to someone who is in the living room. Course truth be told this is also my least favorite feature when my mother whose snores VERY loudly visits, but the other 359 days out of the year make up for it.
