As a Brit im amazed that you dont have switches on your outlet plugs. Does this mean when you finish using something or go to bed you have to unplug everything not needing to be be on? It seems alot of effort for the lack of a switch :/
Cultural Exchange: Lessons to Learn from Australian Homes

I will be facing a similar dilemma soon when I finish my uni course. As an architecture student all the books and magazines I've amassed will be important in my future career and the novels I have I've already purged in each move to a new student house and cant bear to part with any of them. I agree that you should keep your books if you've already sorted them and instead look somewhere else to save space. I have moved all my dvds, cds, and computer software cds into cd folders to save shelf space since I have over 100 films on dvd. Now all of them fit into space in the bottom of my bedside table.
A Bookworm's Dilemma: Ditch Books When Downsizing?
|1/30/12 6:11 PM|
I can sympathise too, my family home has 10 rooms and as both my parents are hoarders we have more furniture and stuff than we will EVER need. My sister and I have been editing the hoardings for two years since our return home from uni and we still have two rooms full on the 'out of sight out of mind' principle. I find the other problem is when the stuff hoarded isn't yours alone but shared it's harder to reach a consensus as to what to do. Building maintenance takes longer too in a bigger home as you can also forget about the non immediate stuff.
