    I absolutely love your house! You have made such an amazing home for your sweet family!! I LOVE small spaces. My husband and I bought our first house, a two bedroom townhouse, right after we were married. We lived there when we welcomed our first little boy. Then a couple years later, our second son came, we still lived in my beloved townhome. I never wanted to move! My boys loved sharing a room, and I loved being is a space that we were all together, all the time. Finally, after welcoming our fourth son, my husband convinced me that we needed more space. We moved a couple years ago, but I still miss my little townhouse!
    Your house seems just so perfect, and is so pretty!!!

    First of all, I would like to say thanks to you for such a nice and informative article about small space living organizing. I’ve read many articles on this topic. But this the best one I’ve ever read. Your writing style makes this article more enjoyable. I will apply your suggestion in my home. Some of my friends also interested in this topic. I would like to share your idea with my friends. Thanks again for your effort to write such a nice post.

    Your house is lovely Amanda. You did a beautiful job of styling it and making it functional for your family. I like your philosophy on small space living and look forward to living in a small space myself one day. Oh and my husband and dog can come too. lol

  4. My husband and I are planning to purchase a single-family home, although I’m not sure if living in a small space is convenient after all. Well, I guess you made a pretty good point that an affordable price, I can already have a three-bedroom, one bathroom, and a kitchen. I just hope that I’ll be able to find a real estate company that will be able to offer the right house for us.

    We have downsized twice. We are currently in a small 110 year old home. I love your message of contentment. This is the most difficult piece for me. I’m trying to work toward more minimalism. That is so hard! I have 54 years of treasures and hate them being stowed away. How to display without overwhelming is a challenge.

    • Amanda says:

      Yes! That’s definitely a challenge! What I like to do is switch out a few things each season, just like I do with my seasonal decor. So I’ll keep some things in storage, but every once in awhile I’ll go through and switch them out! It’s like finding treasures every time!

    Thanks for pointing out that because small homes take up less space, there is a wider variety of locations that it can be built. My wife and I want to move closer to our grandchildren, and we think that it’s more important to have a large yard they can play on than a complex home, so they’re not stuck inside. We’ll be sure to find a small home near us with lots of land!
