Downsizing…the trend has started! Downsizing no longer refers to just homes anymore! There is a trend towards getting rid of “stuff” and not purchasing more , living more simply! This downsizing is also creeping into peoples’ spending habits. The trend appears to be an offshoot of people tending to add “living green” to their lives. Experts actually say that a “less is more” attitude can be quite stress-relieving! Another result of this type of downsizing is people being more interested in their personal relationships than in their personal possessions…not a bad thing. For an interesting overview of the trend, Kristin Tillotson’s RISMedia article, Simple Tips to Downsize Your Lifestyle, is a good read. Boy, do I have a ways to go!
