Buying a home is very exciting yet it requires some compromises. Normally, your budget will determine the size and the type of home you’ll be able to afford. This might mean that you will have to choose a home with only one garage, or a home with a small backyard instead of a large one.

Great job!  And I loved the questions at the end where you talked about the table and chairs.  It was a very personal moment and I'm sure that was a rough day, but (in time) you recognized it as part of your process.  That's great!  Living tiny has also changed me so much so I can identify with what you're saying.  Well done!

Great tips in this video. Thanks Jenn for taking to time to record, and Steve for sharing! Thank you for reiterating that Downsizing does not mean being Deprived, it can actually help FOCUS us toward the dream goal!

This video made me realize my downsizing realities...1) This will be my first time living alone (empty-nesting, single mom :); 2) I've been exploring new hobbies, which includes purchasing items associated with these EXCITING, NEW INTERESTS...3 so far - so I need to get a handle on all the new purchases, and start to get rid of (or better organize) some things!

It's comforting to know that I still have a little time to get things in order...my estimated move isn't until 2019! whew
