Tiny House Craze – Live with Less

Tiny House Craze – Live with Less

Living Tiny

little-model-house-freeimages-jasonaabergWhat better way to go minimal and start really living life?  The first time I saw a picture of a tiny house on the internet, I wanted to live in one.

Can you imagine living in 300 square feet or less?  To me, that’s truly a tiny house.  I love the idea of building a livable tiny house on a movable trailer.  That way, you don’t have to know WHERE you want to live and you don’t have that “anchor” holding you in one place.

With a movable home, you can still go anywhere.  To me, it seems to be the ultimate freedom.

I love watching shows like Tiny House Nation to get ideas for my tiny dream home and to see how they pare down their belongings.  It inspires me to purge even more and to take a new perspective of ‘what do I really need’.

Here’s a couple of quick “how to” tips I picked up…

#1 – Choose a number of items to keep from one area (whether it’s a small room, a drawer, a shelf, a cabinet, etc…  Stretch yourself to make it as small a number as you can.  Go through the area & keep only the 5 (or whatever the number you chose is) items.  Ditch the rest.

#2 – Pull out a plastic bin or two & keep only what you can fit in them.  Do this for a specific space in your home OR if you want to go extreme, do it for the whole home.

Remember, it’s a process.
