The Compact 2010 wrap up

I can't believe the year is over.  However, I am looking forward to a date night with The Hubbs tonight...some beer and some Top Gear are in our sights :)

As for The Compact, I got derailed and choose to buy new in a few instances.  As I reflect on all of the purchases I made this year, I can't believe how many have been used.  I scored at The Army, garage sales and from friends and family.  The Hubbs also turned a corner this year with curbing his spending and deciding to buy used more.

This journey has helped me to de-clutter our home.  I used to whine all.the.time about how small our home was.  It's only 900 sqft for 4 people, 2 dogs and 3 cats.  Yeah, I know.  But since the de-cluttering bug has hit, our house is much more of a home, than a dumping grounds for stuff. 

I want to thank each and every one of you for joining me.  I truly appreciated your comments and ideas throughout the year.  And of course, the best part is that I made a few new friends along the way.


  1. Way to go! I know I could have never done it (although I did follow your lead on quite a few things).

  2. you for new friends :) I think you did great this year. I should take your lead and declutter MY 900sf home. TOO CROWDED!
