Well, you'll have to find some "home" for all the crap. We now have an attick and a storage shed.
And we threw a lot of stuff away, and donated a lot to the people that moved in.
We went from living in a 6 br, 3 bath, 3 living room, and a couple of dining rooms, 3 kitckens (with 6 roomates, but most of the "stuff" was ours) situation to a very small 1 br house.
But, yeah...We're less cluttered now. Now, if I even think about bringing anything home, I'm also thinking of what I'll have to get rid of.
When we lived in that huge house I always knew I could squeeze something else in, even if I'd end up cussing it all later for having to dust it.
But weirdly, for my own packrat self, a smaller home has meant less clutter.
(I do miss that very old, Victorian house, though...*sigh*...and buying groceries in bulk with the roomates.)
