Yeah, we're out of control. The amount of furniture that we were hoarding in our house is embarrassing. We sold over 15 pieces of furniture plus a ton of small nick knacks and housewares at our garage sale. We decided that with our move and new place it was time to downsize- big time! This even included a major decision to go down to sharing 1 car! Can you believe it?! (We're also selling one more big piece of furniture on craigslist if you're interested.)

Everyday since the garage sale, we've been finding more and more that we're ok to part with. I've been posting those items to Instagram and Facebook and they are gone! (It's actually a little addicting). We have always collected a lot of nick knacks and little things that clutter up our small space. We finally have an idea of what we want our home to look and feel like and it's way more minimal than it ever has been.  

With this "new home" we have a few things to make + buy. Philip is making a lot of big pieces of furniture (coffee table, headboard, dining table, desks, etc.) That's going to save us a lot of money. Other things that have to be purchased will most likely be from amazon, craigslist, overstock or other affordable places. Then there are those few things that we have just decided to splurge on (like this sofa just to name one.) 

I'm really excited to blog about each of these things as they happen (Like the two posts I already have planned for later this week.) Thanks for letting me share my excitement! :)


  1. I need to do this too!
    I've only sold stuff on facebook, but it's totally addictive :P

  2. Yay for downsizing! It feels so good to let stuff go. Rudy and I have shared a car for at least 3 years and it's great! Also, now that you've sold all that stuff you can actually afford to splurge on big stuff that will last. I love it. Have so much fun in your new space!
