Smaller Yet Peaceful Home

I am giving away our queen size bed as we do not have enough space here in the house anymore. RJ is growing up so fast while hubby and I are getting bigger each day. The three of us can barely move with ease here in our very small home. Would you believe that we are living in a 40 square meter space? Yes, we have a very small house. Maybe it is just the size of your master bedroom, but I will not trade this house for anything. And if I will be given the chance to buy a bigger one, still, I will keep this house. We have so much memories in here. This is our haven since we got married and this is our witness when we had our baby.

This was taken when we moved in 11 years ago…

One more thing I love about this house is it is very easy to maintain. You may be wondering how I manage to do that with all the stuff to store on a limited space. The hanging cabinets and hidden storage furniture are what helping us maintain our house the way we want it…organized and peaceful. They make our house naturally manageable thus cleaning is a lot easier. Also, based on our experience, small house living is an easy way to live more sustainably. Life is simpler, up keep cost is lower, utility bills are lower thus, less debt and less risk. Yes, small house has many advantages that is why Small House Movement advocates living in small homes for a less clutter and less complicated life. In fact, there are professionals and even movie stars who proudly downsized their homes.

Small house may not accommodate your excess stuff but one thing is for sure, it will make your life simpler thus you will have mental freedom and a more peaceful life.

  5. We also have a small house, sis. And because of the limited space, I’ve learned (sadly though) to let go of clutter and just keep the necessities. I used to be guilty of hoarding mementos and whatnots. Now it has to be just the necessities or our house would look like a garbage dump. Hahaha!

  6. weeehhh! ang cheesy ng photo… i agree, ang hirap ng malawak na lugar, mas magastos at nakakapagod 🙂

  7. I used to live in a smaller space and I miss it so much specially when it’s cleaning time 🙂

  8. Sis, I have an award for you. Please claim it on my site. Thanks!

  9. okay lang yan sis…even though ur house is small but I believe there is always a room for LOVE and CARE…that’s what really matters most…:)

  10. Ate Rossel, kala ko naman may giveaway ka ng bed sa blog mo! hehe

  11. Wow, that’s your little slice of heaven on earth :). Would you believe, I live in a 30-sq.m. house? that’s a doghouse compared to yours! hehe. With a living space like ours, we do have to learn how to maximize every nook and cranny.

    I like the pic, by the way. Couldn’t deny the sweetness 🙂

  12. That is a small house, but if you have what you need and are comfortable, then bigger would not be better!

  13. Correct mahirap mag-maintain ng mansion hehehe. Kaya nauso ang condo.

  14. so true… mine is the same:) at yung less effort in organizing a small place, di ko ipagpapalit 😀

    love your page here mommy Rossel. so neat!

  15. true, a small house is easy to maintain, but I still wish to have a big house…: ) sweet photo you’ve got their sis!
