Did you know that the size of an average single-family home has increased to more than 2,500 square feet or 2 ½ times as big as it was right after World War II? We’ve all heard the saying in America that bigger is better, but is that always the case? When it comes to the size of your home, the reality is a bit more complicated.

The extra space encourages us to buy a bunch of things we don’t really need, and chances are they’re quite expensive.
