You pay WHAT to store things you never use?!?!

I live in 960 sq ft right now. There’s a basement, but it’s pretty much unused (so is one of the upstairs rooms). I’ve been donating things and things to thrift stores. Every time I fill a box, I consider myself that much closer to my goal of  building and living in 400 sq ft (or a little less). Less cleaning, less to repair, less to heat, less to pay taxes and insurance on… less storage space. I used to laugh at people who paid $75+ for a storage shed every month to keep things they never used anyway. Then I realized I was doing the SAME THING (at probably a little higher cost) by paying the insurance, taxes, and maintenance on the square footage I had. At one time I thought I needed more space because I couldn’t seem to make everything fit in the apartment I had. Instead, I just needed a more practical floor plan and a few less unnecessaries.

About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? http://wp.me/p1CY5z-1R Baptism! http://wp.me/s1CY5z-baptism
