I decided to downsize and at the time, it seemed like a good idea. I knew it would be a challenge but I really didn’t know just how much of a challenge it would be. My mom downsized about the same time that I did, after the death of papa, and it was a smooth transition for her. She has so much storage space that I’m flat out jealous. I have 0 storage space except for 2 shelves I talked my landlord into putting in my laundry closet. I filled them up immediately and I’m desperate for more storage solutions.
