SIZE MATTERS: An infographic showing why living in smaller spaces might be better.

In Nigeria, I sometimes think we have a phobia for the small. We tend to relate it to poverty or lack and feel as though if its not big then its not worth it. Some are changing that outlook but most folks still ride this train of thought. We must drive the Big SUV, we must us the Big Phones, we must wear ‘Big’ name brands, we must shop at ‘Big’ (and sometimes expensive) shopping malls, and ofcourse, we all want to build a BIG HOUSE.
Well, this infographic sheds some light and shares some wisdom as to why living in a smaller space may be the better move. Heres hoping you have a rethink after going through. Selah.
