This is a guest post by Jenn Baxter, a Tiny Transition and Downsizing student and now tiny house dweller. Jenn began her journey in the Tiny Transition and Downsizing course, and now lives full-time in her very own (very cute!) tiny home!
Today, she's going to share her experiences and her tips for downsizing.
The next session of the Tiny Transition and Downsizing E-Course starts on August 30th, and I'd love to see you in there!
This is an 8-week course that fundamentally changes your relationship with stuff and helps you de-clutter, downsize, and clear out your home and mind, in a step-by-step zero-overwhelm environment.
Registration is open for the session beginning on August 30th. Preparing to transition into a tiny home, RV, trailer or cabin? Just want to clear your space and get some sanity in your current home? This is for you.
You'll be in supportive group of like minded friends and kindred spirits! Register here and join us for the next session.
I'll let Jenn take it from here!
Downsizing is no easy task.
We all have become so accustomed to having so much stuff, that we don’t even realize how much we’ve acquired over time until we are forced to a) move it or b) take an objective look at it.
When I decided to build a tiny house, I knew I had some downsizing to do. I had, after all, filled a mid-sized U-Haul truck all by myself the last time I moved. Like most people, I had a bedroom full of furniture, a dining set, living room furniture, a second bedroom set in the guest bedroom, several Rubbermaid bins full of keepsakes, kitchen appliances, luggage, sporting equipment and on and on it went.
