The days of upsizing whether to add an additional 500 calories of McDonald’s fries, to extended a warranty designed to make you feel good while destroying your budget, to remove that natural sand dune because you need a better view: gone. You may not realize it, and that’s fine. Everyone at their own pace. I simply feel bad and have always felt badly for those who don’t understand the blessings of downsizing. Of simplifying. Of saving, of stretching out a bottle of lotion by cutting it open and realizing there is another week’s worth of moisturizer waiting to be used. My mother taught my sister and I well. We scrape, pinch, do-it-ourselves, and only buy bargains. All a form of downsizing.
