Living in a larger home has been a challenge. Downsizing into small house living, on the other hand, has been a blessing for the family, not so much cleaning, less expenses, less utilities and more sharing with one another. Want to live big? Move into a tiny house, shipping container, an RV, small apartment or studio for more fun and less financial stress. Remember when all the average family wanted was a larger home and more space for entertaining? Why not entertain using the outdoors?
However, during a point in time, I recall longing for a much smaller home and work less at it. Arriving home after work and feeling I had arrived at my kingdom was priceless. The larger the home, the bigger the bills! And the weekends were for cleaning, grocery shopping and patio maintenance. It usually was a run-run-run deal, and then all of a sudden it was Monday again and all tired to start working again. It was a vicious cycle for many years, while looking forward to the next weekend in order to rest, but it never happened. Not every family lives this way, but many fall into this routine easily.
There are much desired advantages that are achieved when you downsize. Just think about the less effort, time and money on keeping up with the lifestyle. Another one is that just the necessary things are kept in order to avoid clutter for a much simpler daily life. People will own what they need and have what they want. They will find it easier to live day by day because they are no longer complicated.
Downsizing will allow them to use smartly the available space, there will be one spot for eating and having family togetherness. Without a doubt, there will be more time for yourself. They will enjoy traveling with less worries. And what about not having to pay a 30 year mortgage, while another obvious advantage would be to save more money for the future and well deserved vacations. Mostly the things you never get to do unless you take out a loan and oops, you’re tied up again to another debt.
Freedom we scream! When we were teenagers, we couldn’t wait to grow up to be on our own, but then we found out there really wasn’t any freedom because we are sucked into the things that life swallows us into slowly.
So why not think ahead, plan ahead, dream ahead? Pay off your bills by daring to take upon that freedom and downsize to live the real lifestyle you were longing for. Set a goal date and start the process. It is possible, search for the options available in tiny houses, shipping container homes, recreational vehicles, small apartments or studios. Live big in a tiny home and plan your own wellbeing for the future. Have more fun, live more, live healthy physically, emotionally and financially.
