"LIFE OVER SIXTY" BLOGGER DOWNSIZED HER HOME, GIVES TOUR

[ Edited ]

At first I thought this might be a bit of a downer, but it actually is quite interesting and positive.  The "Life Over Sixty with Sandra" blogger is neat.  Among other things, she is a glamorous former TV Romper Room teacher, "Miss Sandra".   She's 80 now, and 2 years ago she and her husband downsized from a 5 bedroom Jersey shore retreat, to a new place in South Beach that is under 1000 square feet!  She has more of an eclectic, sort of global, bohemian style now, which I think suits her new Florida digs.

 

Her thoughts on making changes in one's lifestyle are thoughtful, not sugar-coated, but encouraging.

Surprised to see this. I didn’t know she had a blog. I grew up in the neighborhood of her NJ shore home. I thought the pictures looked familiar. Her blog is interesting.

I think I have a lot of stuff but when I see houses like this, I feel suffocated.

 

which is why not waiting till you are 80 to get rid of things is a good plan

She appears happy and that is all that really matters. She has her own sense of style which seems to suit her very well.
