"What Was Supersized May One Day Be Downsized" [Dec. 31] is critical of people who buy large houses. In 1978, we -- husband, wife and two children -- wanted to find a house with three bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a full bathroom and a three-quarter bathroom. We couldn't.
We ended up with a bigger house with two complete bathrooms and a "living room" that's used at Christmas time as a place to put the tree. We, as do our neighbors, spend most of our time in the family room.
