|The Organized Closet|
My husband and I are retired and have been enjoying travel around the US in our van. We visit our kids and just enjoy being out and about. Lately we've toyed with the idea of giving up a house altogether. Our house is paid for, and we probably would get some money for it, though not all that much in today's market. I don't know what motor homes cost, but money from the house could help with that purchase.

I can't give up cooking; I'd have to get really serious about organizing a small kitchen to make it work. With little storage space for food, I'd have to be more careful about meal planning rather than relying on a big freezer. It would be a slightly different mind set.
My sewing machine would be the biggest problem. I've just started sewing for my new granddaughter and am enjoying it so much. I have lots of fabrics in my stash that are perfect for little dresses. Can I give all that up for a life on the road? I don't know.
What clothes would I take? We'd need things for all sorts of weather, so planning would be important. It would be like living from a suitcase on a trip, only all the time. So much for fashion. And I do have quite a collection of purses from over the years as well as some I've made. That's sort of a hobby too.
|Down Sizing or Right Sizing?|
I just don't know if I'm ready for a life where the constant is change. I often think that a life without a lot of possessions could be a good one, but when it comes to choosing it I hesitate. (Also I have claustrophobia. Could I take it to be enclosed in a relatively small space?)
If you had to downsize, what would be on your list of must-haves to take with you? It's always been a fun exercise to me, but when it comes to the real thing, it seems a little more daunting.
