Here are some great thoughts for anyone thinking about downsizing to simplify your lives:
Early this month, I moved from what I considered a relatively spacious half-bedroom apartment in Santa Monica — to a tiny, less-than-400-square-foot apartment in West Hollywood. I just tried to figure out exactly how small it is — but I can’t locate the measuring tape in its new hiding spot!
In any case, the move got me seriously thinking about tiny living, downsizing, simplicity, organization, and efficiency. And thanks to both the economy and the environmental movement, many other women are rethinking their personal American dreams, wondering if smaller can, indeed, make for a better, happier life.
