I always thought decluttering meant ending up with less stuff. At least that’s how I do it. But buying organizers for 30 different tea bags or repackaging food that already comes in perfectly good containers seems wasteful to me. If you have less stuff, you’ll have less to organize (and to buy organizational systems for!)
It’s all about freedom; the less stuff you have, the less time you spend organizing it, so you’re free to do what you really want to do (unless you really want to organize tea bags, in which case, knock yourself out!)
One way to make sure you have affordable housing wherever you go is to convert a school bus into your home as this young man did.
I stumbled on to this site, where I found not only plans for tiny and small houses, but also the stories of those who are building them. I just love looking at this stuff, even though I’m happy living in the little house I have. I suppose some would call this small house porn; maybe so, because I can’t get enough of it!
Tired of paying rent? Why not turn a school bus into a home and travel instead? That’s what this man did, and his place is pretty nice.
Meet a couple who made a documentary about tiny houses, and covered over 25,000 miles in their own tiny house.
This man shares custody of his five kids, so I guess you could say he lives the downsized life part-time, because when he’s alone, 1,000 square feet should be plenty of room. But when the kids are there, it’s a whole ‘nother story. Note the space-saving techniques he used when furnishing his place.
