Want to downsize your life and find more time, freedom, and focus? Read this first.

The next session of Tiny Transition and Downsizing, the 8-week e-course, begins on May 3rd, 2015. You can register for the class and see all the details here!

You know you want to downsize. Heck – you NEED to downsize if you’re thinking about living in a tiny or small home! And you know that downsizing will allow you to save more money, live the life you want to live, and have the time and financial freedom to spend with family, travel, or your passions.

Maybe you’ve tried to “get organized” and “de-clutter” before. It probably felt pretty good…at first.

But a few days later, your home looks the same as it did before. And the progress you’re making is slow-going. You’re stuck. You’re not sure why – because you’ve read the books and the blogs but nothing really works.

Downsizing is HARD. But you don’t have to do it all alone.

Tiny Transition + Downsizing is the 8-week course that fundamentally changes your relationship with stuff and helps you de-clutter, downsize, and clear out your home and mind, in a step-by-step zero-overwhelm environment. Registration is open for the session beginning on May 3rd.

Pin-up Houses

CABIN-PLANS-CHERYL

Guest Post by Joshua Woodsman

Cabin homes are typically small homes, designed with simplicity. Often used as vacation homes for families or just for a couple. These compact small homes offer a warm ambiance, creating an intimacy that can be lacking in larger, more formal homes. Small cabins are ideal for those who looking to build a smart, flexible, cost-efficient, and energy-saving home. Small homes are more affordable and easier to build, heat, cool, clean, and maintain.

The most important step in building a house is easy-to-follow plans. Pin-up houses offer these very plans. Here we have the Cheryl Cabin. It can be used as a holiday home, a guesthouse, or simply a place to escape in your garden. The plans clearly describe the entire process in detail. Anyone can build this cabin. Continue reading

Tiny Floating Homes: RAG DOLL

ragdoll-2

Sometime last February Peter and I sailed into a popular destination in the Bahamas called Staniel Cay. We anchored next to a tiny little sailboat in the far corner of the bay and settled in for a strong blow that was forecasted to arrive later that afternoon. As the wind picked up and the waves grew large we kept an eye on the boats around us to ensure no one had begun to drag anchor. Only one or two other boats stuck it out and didn’t move to another anchorage when the winds clocked around from another direction. One of which was a 24′ sailboat named Rag Doll. Continue reading

The Real Cost Of Living Full-Time In An RV

Just as the more commonly accepted THOW forums go there is always that one question that is asked over and over and over so to does the RV community. It usually manifests itself as some version of “How much does it cost per month to live full-time in an RV?”  And as one would imagine there is no standard answer. The answer is highly personal and varies from person to person based upon personal living style and income.

Odom Family

r(E)volutionary disclaimer: We live on the road as an expression of freedom and discovery. We look for places that are either in the sun, near friends and family, or in proximity to a learning opportunity for our daughter. We live without consumer debt and have whittled away our monthly overhead. While I have a corporate day job it is a telecommute position allowing us to be on the road as a relatively young couple with a growing young lady. Our monthly income is consistent and we live on a budget.

From March 1, 2015 to March 31, 2015 part of our budget looked as follows:

30-amp Camp Site Woodsmoke Camping Resort $1,050
Cody’s RV Park $56
Reed Bingham State Park $23
Auto Insurance (truck and trailer) $196
Fuel $379
Propane $46
Utilities $63.47
Laundry $71
Mail/Postage $17
Groceries $375
Eating Out $225
Recreation $107.62
TOTAL $2609.09

FIXED EXPENSES

No matter what month it is the fixed travel costs remain virtually the same. They are primarily what the above budge is based on. Some months we certainly spend less and other months we go higher. But all in all they are the standards.
