It Forces You to Be Realistic About Your Needs
With small homes come limited storage options, which really force you to take a step back and identify the items you need — and the items you've been hoarding for years. If you have a hard time letting go of things, not having enough space actually makes it a lot easier to make those decisions. With limited space, it's much easier to prioritize. It can also help you pare down your belongings and get rid of any duplicates or extras that are taking up valuable storage space, like linens, bedding and towels.
