When the Tiny House Movement isn’t for you

If you are willing to think outside the box and research neighborhoods, you might be able to find a gem in a neighborhood that you may not have thought of looking. You obviously want to make sure it is a safe neighborhood, but if you find a neighborhood that is on its way to bettering itself, you might be able to find a good property for less. If you invest in it, you not only can make a dream home for yourself for a lot less, but you are investing in your community

Putting Clutter to Rest

The reasons for clearing clutter are many, but the big reasons are that a.) We do not have the space and b.) I want to try to teach the kids to not be as hung up on material things. When we had our large house and first moved there, we had so much space! We had this old house with three floors of living space and a mostly finished basement. We filled it with furniture, toys, books, clothes, among other things. One of the hardest things coming here was realizing that this house did not have the closet space our other house did, nor did it have the storage space. We absolutely HAD to get rid of some things, but how?

Feeding a family on a budget without the headache!

Make a grocery list, and stick to your list. Whether you go to Aldi, Walmart, Target, Giant, Costco, or any other place, you will blow your budget if you do not stick to your list. Do not get into the mindset of overbuying because you may end up with a pantry of unused food. Do not get into the mindset of, "Well this is on sale...I just got to get it!" You will overspend. If you are going somewhere that sells things other than food, put the other merchandise you need on your list. If it is not on the list, don't buy it.
