Comments on: Drumroll please: Our Decision to Downsize our Home One couple's story of escaping 9 to 5 until 65 Wed, 20 Jul 2016 17:22:09 +0000 hourly 1 By: Bryan Sat, 26 Dec 2015 18:50:35 +0000 Thanks ARB!

We were definitely going to the dark side there for a while when we were considering up-sizing. I kept getting this nagging feeling that I was undermining all my efforts to become fully debt free. Essentially repeating the mistakes of the past, then shooting myself in in the foot for good measure. BTW – your comment about the problem I must be having with scraping my head on our current house ceilings struck a cord and brought back some common sense to the decision making process.

Now if we can only get to the fast approaching finish line of selling our current house and closing on the next, I can begin to take deep normal breathes again! 🙂

Congratulations and good luck with your new home. Glad to see you took the option that will put you on the fast(er) track to financial freedom. I’m sure you and Dianne will love the new place and will be happy being debt free.

In your case, it sounds like the move closer to town helped with you business. I am fortunate in that I work from home and my new work space will be comparable to what I have now -so no difference there. Dianne will have about the same commute time to work.

Idaho and Alaska are the only two states I have not visited in my travels. I would love to check out the scenery in your area someday. Maybe that might be in 2017 when we take an extended camping trip?

Take care,

In my case previously I was staying in Idaho, however, started experiencing some financial crunch since mid 2014. I am good in handcraft related work, so I decided to move towards the town side as that enabled me to sell my work because of good demand. I can make woollen garments for kids, so after relocating I contacted the local shops who gave me a chance, later arranged a small get together that made my presence very strong & now I am happily living in my new place with financial freedom. 🙂

I might have to leave some forwarding directions to him. We will be moving less than a half mile away so maybe he can find us. I think Hershey will miss him the most!

Take care and good luck with your move as well!
