I read today that the average new house in America is down to 2,400 square feet. Since we are one half the size of the average family, I think it’s appropriate that our house is one half the size of the average house.
That realization doesn’t make trips to Costco easier, though. Organic chicken broth! Toilet paper! Pens! Oh my. Even though I would love to buy all these things in bulk, there is noooo space in my house.
When we moved into this little bungalow, I had an a epiphany. If you save money on buying in bulk, you also have to spend extra money paying for the space that those things take up. So, for now, even though I can’t save money buying in bulk, at least I’m saving money on rent.
While it makes trips to Costco a test of willpower and determination, I’ll take it! Being thankful about the little things makes life that much sweeter.
