Imagine living in a space that measures a mere 168 square feet, more than 14 times smaller than the average American home. That’s the reality for one family of four who, for the past year, has been living in their “Tiny House” tucked away in the rural mountains of Virginia.The move began when Hari, her husband Karl and their two young children Archer and Ella were forced to give up their 1,500 square foot home last year due to financial struggles. They say that they’ve truly learned how less can be so much more. In fact, in just one year the family has managed to save about $3,000 a month by downsizing! Would you like living in a ‘tiny house?’
The Tiny House is temporary. The end goal, they say, is to save enough to one day build a bigger home, one that’s 100% mortgage-free. What do you think of Hari and Karl’s Tiny House? Could you live in a mere 168 square feet?
We recently got rid of EVERYTHING we were ‘storing’ and not using at our house, and it felt SO good to ‘downsize’ and get rid of clutter and stuff we were no longer using! We had a huge garage sale and actually made $1300 off all that ‘stuff’ we had stored in our garage. We remodeled the garage afterwards and now it is a huge ‘party room’ that we WILL use for years to come!
What are some ways you’re downsizing your life?
