How did you know I'd downsized? LOL!
In fact, I've downsized a bunch of times over the years. Here are SOME of the reasons:
1. Going broke. Two bankruptcies, one foreclosure, losing jobs--those things all helped with that.
2. Getting divorced. Oh, wait, that would be going broke, wouldn't it? Six of those.
3. Empty nesting. One dude, his wife, two cats and a leopard gecko just don't need as much space as a family with a whole raft of kids in the house.
