IMG_2370My name is Carol. I live in a suburb of Chicago with my four kids (well, three now, since the eldest has graduated and is rocking the adult thing) and my husband. In 2015, we sold our beloved family home—4-bedrooms, 2-baths, years of memories, a treehouse, and a porch—and did something a little crazy. We downsized to a 2-bedroom, 1-bath home across town. We cut our mortgage bill in half along with our square footage. Our new house, the Cozy Cottage, has changed our lives in ways we never imagined. We are learning so much about the things we own and the things that own us! Stop in and read a little about how and why our family  made this change. I’d love to hear from others forging a path to a simpler life!
