Maximize Your Life Through Minimalism
I shared the link you see below with my wife this morning. It's a story about an Oregon family who built an incredible home for about $22,000 ($33,000 if you count the appliances). "The only thing missing for us is a basement," she replied after she saw the pictures, reminding me we need shelter from possible tornadoes here in the Midwest. I watched the video at the end of the story and noticed something special about this family. They figured out a way to get rid of their debt and maximize their lives through minimalism.
I admit that minimalist living is not something that just happens overnight. It takes time to downsize. I'm still working on this and have a long way to go. It sure has its appeal. Click here for the link to see pictures of an amazing home and take a video tour. Do you think you could ever downsize your life to this level? Please share your thoughts in the comments section.
