  When purchasing, say, a $, house, you need to put $60, down upfront. That 20% down payment gives you equity right from the start .   One way I decided to promote a general book/reading comfortability with my children is to have tons of books in their room. More books than actually toys. I usually had 3 books to every toy in their room (with no more than four toys in their room at once). Below you will find my daughter (@ month old) engrossed in a book independently.

  I agree you can never have too many books! I grew up in a house with lots of books of all kinds. My parents still have lots of books, including an old encyclopia from the s that my kids look at sometimes. In my house now there are books in all 3 bedrooms, the living room and family room. The Emotional Life of Single People: Examples of the Bad Stuff. I’m someone who loves living single, but even so, I see the emotional minefields lurking all around me.

  The 6’ x 6’ cube house seems incredibly small, but it is packed with features. The house may not be fit for a family, but the single-person dwelling is fit with compact components of a full-sized house like a pull-out sofa in the living room, folding tables that serve as workspaces and dining surfaces, as well as a bathroom/10(61). We got caught up in the bigger house movement 20 years ago when we moved to the U.S. from the U.K. (where small houses are the norm). After buying a too big for us house, complete with five acres, we sold it after five years and moved back into a smaller house. People in our small midwestern town thought we were either crazy or had become.
