When I hear the word downsizing it often conjures up visions of children growing up and heading off to college.
I see mother and father staring at one another inside a once necessary home that has suddenly just become a headache to two people who are ready to start living again. The fact is, people of all walks of life are seeing the benefits of taking a decrease in their footprint and economic obligations.
As preppers, we have to be very efficient with our storage. That only gets more important if you decide to downsize. Where you store your preps will be a big thing to consider when moving into a smaller home.
You will quickly understand that you need to spend less time inside. That is a good thing. Before long you will learn to appreciate time outside the home rather than placing all your time inside on the couch in front of the big television.
Spend Time Together
The smaller space forces you to live together. It forces you together. That is a practice in and of itself.
Review of Budget
You will also be able to enjoy a new budget with more money! Review your budget and see if you want to save that money, put it towards prepper, or do something else with it.
You could focus that money on spending more time outside the home than being stuffed inside a big home all the time.
Eliminate Whats Trivial
This journey will also force you to understand the things that are truly necessary for you to be happy. We hold on to lots of stuff. That is just how humans are. When you dont have space, you begin to realize that much of the stuff you keep around is there to take up that space!
