Chatting about down sizing to a smaller dream home
Talking to friends about down sizing brings a lot of headaches!
Do we need a house with two toilets and bathrooms, a family room and formal lounge and dining we all ask.
Do we really want to leave our loved garden that we break our backs at each day trying to get to one more weed or that snail that is eating our seedlings. The weeds start to get a long way down on some days to pull out!
The idea of a retirement village sometimes is frightening, especially when we see the issue with living close together when there is a pandemic. We personally like our back garden facing north to get the winter sun so why would we want to move?
When we down size we have to sort out the treasures that we have had for so many years, which ones do you give away or which items do we give to the Salvos?
I know we have gone through all this 20 years ago with our late mothers, it is emotional.
Give items to grown children and what did they do they sold them! No emotional attachment to a lot of items.
Sometimes I think I would like to be a Pharaoh and take everything with me! LOL
