When I hear the term downsizing I often think of seniors, but I've noticed an interesting trend lately. My friends with kids who are headed to college are positively giddy about getting out of the burbs. They loved suburban life while the kids were young but now they're anxious for the next phase of their lives. Free of carpools and lawn care, they're excited about embarking on a new adventure. One friend excitedly whispered to me "we just have one year left before we put our plan into action!"
