If you don't mind telling us, it would entertain me to know where the proceeds from the sale of your house are to be deposited, and to what purpose you expect them to be applied.

I've run out of episodes of Tiny House, Big Living and have now moved on to Tiny Luxury, a show about an extremely punchable-looking couple from Portland who build tiny houses for a living.

If you don't have a skillet or small sauce pot on your stove, ready to go at a moment's notice, then you obviously hate cooking and food and we can't be friends.
I keep a skillet on the stove, sometimes two. But storing cookware within arms reach of the stove is cromulent.
