Stop and look around your house or apartment and think about all the things you'd have to give up if you were to move into a tiny house; could you do it? Could you give up everything except for a few essentials needed for living? I am fascinated with the minimalist lifestyle but am no where near living as a minimalist. Joseph and I have made certain sacrifices to make sure we are living well within our means, we've chosen to not be slaves to debt or to the old adage: Keeping up with the Jones'. I like to think that I'm not a materialistic person, but I don't think I could give up my kitchen to live in a 150 square foot house! I do appreciate the lifestyle and admire those who have given up material possessions to live simply and debt free! For more information about tiny house living check out this tiny house blog (HERE).
