I think the idea of throwing everything away and starting fresh sounds amazing. Declutter, live comfortably, and enjoy the real purpose of life. I feel that as Americans we have taken such a heavy responsibility to care about what society thinks of us and our house. We work long hard hours just to pay for a house in the end we can't really even afford. Here are some statistics on a tiny house.
I think this would be fun to live in while we take a couple maybe five years who knows to save up money to pay for our house as we go. So we have been talking about it. But we do not want to pay 15,000 for something we will only live in for a few years. We are going to try to get as much as we can by thrifting, dumpster diving, free finds, and repurposing. Thats if we do it which we are hoping to.
I know everyone hears how small it is and cringes. Let me tell you a little bit about our timeline of square footage.
First apartment-an unfinished basement 500 soft
Moved in to our first home 960 soft
Rented a room from family-150 sqft
Second house-over 3,000 sqft
New and current above a garage apartment-580 sqft
So we have jumped around a lot in four years to say the least. Maybe we should start calling ourselves Gypsies I think that word would fit appropriately. But we are also flexible. Thanks to Anthony, my husband, he has taught me to not hoard and instead get rid of it. Its true why do we really need all of this stuff? We waste it on things we will throw away in two years. The money thats buying these wasteful things we worked our butts off for. So this also goes along with the New budget. Helping cut out waste in our lives and help allow us a better future. By get rid of I do not mean throw away either. I mean donate and give to those in need or just starting off.
Just a tidbit of information of something new to learn about. What do you think of moving to something so small? What are your thoughts on this house?
