MINIMIZE!!!! Everything!!! The size of your house, clothes in your closet, clothes in kid's closet, toys in kid's room, dishes, books... you get the idea.
I have a DREAM life in Wichita, Kansas! My home is 3600+ square feet, I have a huge walk-in-closet, my kids both had their own room, they had a separate room just for toys, dishes in my kitchen I NEVER used (I know some of you aren't surprised with that one), tons of built in shelves... you get the idea. But with all of this...STUFF, I needed time to take care of it. Clean the house, do the laundry, pick up the toys, put things away. BUT NOW... I am living in a different environment.
My apartment is 755 square feet. I have a single load washer/dryer that is located in a closet 6 steps between both bedrooms. I don't even own a hamper here. The kids only got to pack 1 box each of toys. So when it comes time to clean up, it feels like a snap. My kitchen/dining/living room are all in one. I can make dinner, watch the kids watching a movie and complete this blog. Even if I am feeling a little less than 100%. I can get it all done. Now I feel like a NINJA!!!
