Truthfully, I think our room is a very comfortable size. Our furniture fits nicely and nothing looks too crowded. But, just like most other rooms in our house, space is a commodity - we have room for what we have, but not much room for excess. For my clothes, I really do have a "one in, one out" rule. If I buy something new I scour my closet and drawers to find something to give away. Not because I'm so awesome and charitable, but I really, really don't have enough space to build a giant wardrobe. This rule really keeps me in check - I don't buy new things very often because then I would have to give something away. For the most part, when I do buy something new, I am trying to replace something I already have. It's a great system that works for me and for my closet space.

I think the most important point this week is that we have exactly enough room for what we need - no more, no less. It might be challenging, especially in today's society where the theme is "more". But the theme in our little house is "enough". And that's exactly how much room we have.
