If you must renovate, make sure it is sensible. I recently looked at a home open where they had replaced the kitchen but not changed the window which was too high to see the stunning view over the valley. If they had replaced the window with a picture window to show off the view buyers probably wouldn't have even noticed the rest of the kitchen. They had also replaced the laundry with a pantry area... great idea but they had moved the laundry into the outdoor games room - not built in and just sitting on the carpet!

And if you are an indoor smoker please please make sure you wash your curtains!!!

In my younger years, my boyfriend and I lived on a farm in I guess about 150 sq ft of cottage. It had a mini bathroom and kitchen and one room. We put the wardrobe in front of bathroom door to create a "hallway" so you weren't always looking at the toilet! It had room for the bed and table against opposite walls and an armchair at the bedhead beside the fireplace. The "laundry" was a concrete tub on the outside wall. We had amazing views over a valley and small river. The rent was $20 a week. We had spring water and grew all our own vegies. We were both artists so art supplies had priority over other possessions. We loved it!

Small Changes, Serious Impact

OK let me see if I have this straight... I am putting my bar soap in the bed so my unwashed duvet cover will smell nice... I am putting the fresh flowers in the liquid soap to deter the cat... I'm pouring another glass of wine and watching Sex in the City to learn about landing strips... but for the life of me I can't remember what I was meant to do with the scissors!!!

@good pr - take a pile of paper each night and while you watch tv or listen to music sort the pile. Put the rubbish pile straight into the recycling bin and immediately file the must keeps. Pay the bills you find the next day and bin or file straightaway.

I LOVE this... but if I had a bed like that I would have to physically remove the dog and two cats first... then clean off all the fur, dirt, half-the-garden, pet toys... anyone want some pets?!?!!! :)
