Living Small

I guess it's all in your perspective. Some people wonder how my husband and I can live in less than 300 sq. ft. Yet, this young man lives in 78 sq. ft. I've learned the past few years that we need a whole lot less than we ever imagined.

  1. I wonder how much he pays for his shoebox apartment. We have more space in our popup camper we got for free (a $50 check that was never cashed) than he has in his apartment. He sure was clever with that space.

  2. I agree!! When we were homeless for one month this past June, we lived in a camper. We had all we needed in a very limited space. We now live in a small mobile home, 875 sq. ft from our former home of 1500 sq. ft. We love it. Hugs

  4. I just found your blog. I am enjoying your posts. I must say that $800 is 2/3 of my mortgage payment.....for 1000 square feet! Wow!

  5. As hubby and I move into major health issues of older age, I am beginning to see that even our modest home (and all its "stuff") is much more than we need.

  6. It's very expensive to rent an apartment in NY with any amount of space. I think the tent we use for camping has more space.
    He's young and doesn't have pets or a family, so I guess it works just great for him. I wish him well in his apartment.
