Small Space Living

When we moved into our 1200 square foot house 6 years ago with 3 small children (3 years and younger) it was small. We have since added 2 more kids - and it feels even smaller. Seven people in 1200 sq ft gives us a little under 172 sq. ft. per person. We've considered moving (most recently this summer) but have decided to make do where we are. We've tried, instead, to make the most of the home we have.

During my time living here I've scoured the net for tips and ideas for large families in small spaces. Unfortunately, I've haven't found a lot! So, I thought I would share how we live well in our small house. I'll try to give tips and ideas that we use in our home. I would love to hear your ideas, as well! I'm always looking for ways to streamline our life and home. I'd also love to hear about any blogs you read that are full of great ideas for living in a small space.

So do you live in a small house? If so, how do you mske the most of your square footage? Do you read any blogs that really help you?

  1. I don't think we totally qualify as small..maybe we do..slightly under 16000 sq feet I think... with 6 of us...although I feel, like you may, that our house is not set up to really meet our needs in the long term.
    No blogs I can think off hand..but I will keep my eyes peeled:)


Let me know what you're thinking!!
