My daughter, for example, lived in a dorm room with no problem. When she moved into an apartment, she lived in her bedroom. Even now, she loves the nest she and her husband call the bedroom and is most at home in that small space.
In an article posted on Retire in Style earlier this week we talked about a woman featured on Apartment Therapy. She lived in a small space but actually had a bath tub...trust me, when you give up the space even a tub takes up in a 250 square foot co-op apartment, you are sacrificing precious storage or living area.
I found it very interesting when Bob Lowery of Satisfying Retirement posted a comment on this post:

We lived for months in a Winnebago...25 feet long...when we first retired. Honestly, I loved that little baby. I did not allow my husband to buy one with carpet on the ceiling and we only had a small piece of carpet in the kitchen/dining/living area. My one big hang up is keeping things clean. Even though the space was very small, we did not fill every corner of the storage. It was a lot of fun to live such a simple life!

So, it has occurred to me that I am probably a small space person. There is, for me, something comforting about simple living. Is that good? Who knows.
How about you...how much space do you need?
