    What things would you NOT give up if you had to move to a home half the size of your current home?

    Could you live in half the space you currently occupy?  What things could you give up?  What could you NOT give up?

    That's easy- my Keurig coffee maker!  Must have my coffee!

    I would not and could not get rid of all my art and scrapbooking supplies.  I sort of collect them and it is never a sure thing I will use them.  But they make me happy. So if we moved to a house half this size, maybe my husband would have to get rid of some of his stuff! :-)

    I couldn't give up my violin. Or my laptop, but I'm assuming you're talking about things that take up a substantial amount of space.

    Living in a smaller house needs some planning. I have done it before. But, one thing I will not part is my enormous book collection. I have lugged it around wherever I have gone. I am not going to throw them away just because the house doesn't have enough space.

    My desk, computers, favorite books, a few of my paintings and pictures and about half of the items in my kitchen. I would keep bedroom furniture and dining table and the rest of the house could go.

    I have done this very thing.

    Many kitchen appliances were sacrificed, ( you do know, that I am a cook), meat slicers, food mills, blenders, waffle irons, grills, griddles, crock pots,..........gone with the wind or the whim.

    Many knick knacks, photos,  yard decor items, clothes and sentiments, found their way elsewhere.

    I HAVE to have my many books and I will NOT leave my numerous personal journals..............those, represent me, and I can't not go forward by leaving me, behind.

    I have left new appliances, momentos, patio furniture...BBQ grills, yard swings, gardens, family, adult children.............

    I have " trailered" the bikes, the air compressors, the lawn mowers, the tool boxes, the wheel barrows........

    My journals HAVE to go...............or I stay behind with them.    THAT is the bottom line.

    I have from time to time, been left behind for a short time...........I simply will not part with them..............not until my dying day.   They are the " record" of my having been here.   They are my testimony, my evidence.

    I'm definitely not attached to any piece of furniture, so they could all stay. My home is already pretty small, so half of it would maybe hold my computer(s), my family photos and journals, my art supplies, and maybe I would let my husband come, too, if he promised to behave.

    I'd have a really hard time letting go of my antique radio collection. A couple of them are as large as vending machines.

    I've been homeless before, twice actually. The only I would never give up, no matter what, were and are still my dreams.

    my laptop, tech gadgets... they cost a bomb! Plus I can always construct shelves for layers of storage. Fridge, washer and fans as well. They are more or less a necessity in every household.
