- Keep your sofa small – 72” is an easy size to move from place to place, but it’s still considered full size because it seats three (called an apartment sofa).
- Invest in quality IF you can. These are the things you’ll love for a long time and keep with you even longer. Even if it means splurging on one item…do it.
- Invest in only things you really, really like. Better to have less than own things you don’t really like.
- Start collecting things now that you like…from flea market finds to salvage to tea cups. Whatever floats your boat…start collecting with even one piece.
- Invest in a good mattress. You’ll have it for 10+ years and life can really feel so much harder when you’re not sleeping well at night.
