This is the reaction I usually get from people when I tell them my plans for after getting married. Curious to know what it is? Want me to tell you? Do you really want to? Well okay then. After Daniel and I get married in October we plan on getting a tiny house! Did your reaction look like the gif above?!
But you want kids don’t you?! Of course we want kids. What will you do with all of your stuff?! Bingo! My topic for the night. I just got done really going through my bedroom and closet. Getting rid of things we no longer need or serves no purpose. And yes, I know I can keep the really important things that mean a lot to me..duh!
No this is not a silly new years resolution, which its okay if you have a resolution. I’d rather just take it day by day. Plus I started this before the new year.It’s just been taking me a good amount of time to get it done. Best Tip I can give to anyone who wants to downsize is start with one room. Make sure you have bags for trash/donations/giveaway and a change jar! I found so much change in this process.
Kind of funny how I said “change jar”and i’m making “changesssss”…haha lame joke! I found it amusing.
Right now I’m about one closet from being done. If you were to walk into my apartment right now you would see just big boxes and bags by the door. It looks like I’m moving in! Thank goodness I’m not, I live on the freaking third floor. It amazes me how much stuff I have carried up within the last few years!
The most thing that blows my mind the most was downsizing my kitchen. Yes, my kitchen is small because I live in an apartment but have you ever realized how many sets of dishes you have?! Or mismatched cups or utensils! I’m not a perfectionist but after noticing this I just had to make sure I only had one set dishes that all matched! If you only have 2 people living in your apartment why must we have over 8 plates?! Don’t even get me started on how many cups we used to have.
Fact: The reason my blog post is called the “Little gypsy in Texas” is so when we do get our tiny house my blog will already be established and I’ll be ready to blog about our tiny house life! Wooooo! Bet you didn’t see that coming!
Well simmer down now child. It’s time for me to unwind and get ready for bed…Not. Just got done putting my blankets in the dryer. So I’ll be watching to diy tv on yurts! Which I showed Daniel this today..and he really tried to talk me into it. One thing I cannot do is live in a yurt, you have to feel really safe where you live! If your not sure one what a yurt is leap on over to google and check it out! Leave me some feedback on if you could live in one?!
