Right-Sizing Plates and Bowls – Day 6

Welcome back to the Right-Sizing your Kitchen video series.  Today we’ll be talking about how many plates and bowls to keep in your tiny house and honestly it depends on whether or not you have a dishwasher in your tiny house, and it also depends on how much you intend to invite people into your home to share a meal with you.  Practically speaking, we can invite a max of three other folks into our home at one time.  Since we live in 125 square feet with no loft, it is quickly overwhelming to have folks standing around in the limited floor space.  So having a total of 5 folks at our table is do-able in principle, but not entirely practical.  We’ve had four at our table and that is cozy and marvelous.  We’ve found that the intimate space of our home lends itself to deeper and warmer connections between folks around our table, and for that reason we really love having folks in our home.  I talk about hospitality at length in my book, so maybe I’ll leave that there at the moment.  Check out the video and give some thought to the plates and bowls in your home.  How many is right for you?  Which ones are your favorite?  If you plan to go tiny temporarily, then where will you store the items you aren’t using for now?  Move the unwanted items to your boxes for your favorite charity, clean out the kitchen cabinets where those items used to be,  and congratulate yourself for having completed another day in the “Right-Sizing Your Kitchen” video series.  Thanks for watching, I really appreciate it!
