For years, my husband and I lived paycheck to paycheck, working multiple jobs to make ends meet. We were young and naive, living beyond our means. Fast-forward a decade or so and we are married with two kids and made a decision to drastically downsize our lives so we could begin to enjoy life again.
As perpetual adventure-seekers, we knew we wanted to lead a life of joy, but we couldn’t get past the inborn feeling that we were just here paying our bills and waiting for retirement.
There had to be more, we surmised.
So, in 2017, we sold our 15 acre farm and downsized to 301 intricately designed square feet for our family of four and our dog. We’ve been living tiny for nearly two years and it has afforded us the freedom to meet our son’s special needs, educate our kids from wherever we are parked, and I have been able to travel and speak to crowds about the benefits of simple living on mental health.
Of course we have found freedom in our finances, freedom in our time, and less stress and even cleaning, but what we’ve gained in minimizing our ‘stuff’ has transcended anything we could’ve ever imagined for our little family.
After traveling and speaking at nine tiny house events last season, the same questions kept popping up, “I want to live tiny, but HOW?” or “He wants to go tiny but I’m not so sure it is possible.”
Friends, simplified living and living with less is not only possible, regardless of your age or the size of your home, but it is something you should consider doing RIGHT NOW.
Simple Living Right Now is my book about our journey toward Endling LIfe’s Chaos and Reclaiming Joy. It is a practical, easy-to-follow guide through each room of your home for those who don’t have the time to ‘tidy up’ by holding every item they own, because this is real life and that thought gives me anxiety.
It is short. It is simple. It is hilarious. And it should be for you!
