small homes make wallets fatter quote


Small homes make wallets fatter,
material possessions fewer, 
relationships stronger,
conversations easier,
laughter louder,
cleaning times shorter
and fun times longer

– Emma Healey,

I wrote this in 2017 after having a particularly lovely weekend with my family.

This quote certainly struck a chord and was shared far and wide from my Facebook page – here is the original Facebook post if you’d like to share it

I am more than happy for you to use my quote, but please credit me by name or by linking to this website.
