Since the demise of my favorite shelter magazine, DOMINO, Decor8 has helped ease the pain.
Recently I read this post. Holly Becker and her husband are moving to Germany. The stores she linked to do deliver. Good thing I'm broke or that white console table would be on it's way to Italy.
I know what she means about moving overseas. It was a pain but it also forced me to be ruthless when figuring out what to bring, donate or sell.
I don't know why I didn't do the same when I moved from New York City to Los Angeles. Maybe because I was able to bring furniture and it was only cross country (therefore cheaper) then sending a crate overseas?
While I hate clutter, I still had a lot of files. They were just stored well. It took me forever to shred documents and throw out the things I didn't need.
Holly's blog is fantastic. I've tried to stop looking at home design shows, blogs, magazines etc. but I can't help it. I know I'm going to buy a house one day. It might be a cottage and it might be years from now but I will. And I will finally have a garden of my own.
In the meantime let me figure out how the heck I'm going to pay my rent later this year.
