Today was a first for me. I went out to appraise my very first "tiny home". I've seen them on tv and in the magazines. And there I was in one!
I'll admit, when I pulled the county records, I thought there was a mis-print. A house newly built, with just around 400 square feet? That's a garage size.
Then I got out there . . and I think I could totally do it! Well, not with a family. My first house was 716 sq feet and it seemed pretty small. But some days, as I go from room to room, looking at space to clean and the "stuff" that lives in the space; I want less. I sometimes daydream back to my little house that was easy to clean and then I was free to go and enjoy life!
I have dreams of having enough time to go thru things in this house again. I think we did a pretty good job for our garage sale this past summer. But I didn't even touch the attics or the closets. I am thoroughly appreciating shedding myself of my pack-rat tendancies. I do have a long way to go. I think having four children and all their stuff certainly helps with that!
Tonight I am thankful for the dream of less. It's a rather liberating feeling, in a society of more, more, more; to realize that a more enjoyable life for me, will have less, less, less. I should be able to do that . . after awhile ;)
