Hard times.....glad to have small house
I was just thinking about the economy and how glad I am to have my small house. Even though, I have a degree I can stay home and raise my son and do volunteer work. If I had a giant house, I don't know if that would be the case. I would have a higher mortgage payment, higher upkeep bills, and probably 2-3x the amount of our current utility bills.
If my husband were to lose his job, we would be OK because we have 8 months worth of living expenses tucked away. Now, if I had a giant house, the savings may only get us through 3 or so months.
