Downsizing Isn't What You Think It is About
I have been giving a lot of thought to the concept of "downsizing" lately. At first I considered the topic of "downsizing" as a process where you purge a lot of your junk and eventually move into a smaller place such as a condo where someone else rakes your leaves. But I have to be honest, this whole concept of "downsizing" is indeed more dynamic and exciting than practical. One person's downsize is another person's upsize. And many people are really having a "lifestyle change" more than giving up space.
Downsizing And Going Larger
Downsizing To Get A Better Look
Which brings me to another related aspect of the "downsize" matter....just how many couples I talk with who "downsize" to create a new and exciting nest. The goal is a new look and not necessarily a streamlined condo.
Downsizing To Play House Again
So basically what I am getting at, is that the whole idea of "downsizing" to a condo isn't exactly about going into smaller quarters. Even getting beyond the original plan for many to eliminate the chores of maintaining a lawn, shoveling snow etc. and gaining other conveniences. Many couples take the leap to move to a condo for other reasons such as to see new faces and have a chance to play house again one more time. Let's face it, it is fun to buy new towels, to junk your old kitchen set for something more stylish and to remedy the decorating mistakes you
have made over a lifetime.
