Is it really tiny living?

You might be asking, “Is it really tiny living if you have a second building/separate studio/or storage unit?”

Some people say NO because you still have too much space. Some people say YES because you’re organizing your space, living with intent and not waste.

So, ultimately, it depends on your goals, and like the many people who choose this life, the reasons are very diverse! I know I’ve mentioned it before but today, I’m going to dive in a little deeper about the reasons for tiny life.

For some, living tiny means to reduce your carbon footprint, so they go as small as they can living off of community space like outdoors, libraries, gyms, and parks. Using local resources increases your quality of life with out having to own and maintain the square footage. Some want to live tiny in order to travel. These folks sell off everything except the bare essentials and the open road and adventure is their “home.” People like us are looking to simplify and organize their lives, hence the second building for hobbies/work/storage, etc. This makes it possible to have the things you need on a semi-regular basis, ei. studio/camping/skiing/sports/music/yoga equipment, with out it being in the way daily. This helps to organize your life, your space, your mind and emotional well being.

Living in our small apartment with all of my husbands art supplies has been a challenge our entire married lives. He also finds that there’s not enough space to work and live. By making a separate, small area at his mom’s, he is both utilizing space that would otherwise go unused and creating a positive work environment for himself. Since he has moved his studio he has actually engaged in more artistic endeavors than he has in ages!! This helps him to focus, engage and do what he loves, creating a positive experience for him, me and our marriage!

When thinking tiny, remember, you don’t have to own it, you can share with someone else. Whether that be space, equipment, or hobbies.

Thanks for reading! Please feel free to comment, like and share! Next blog will be photos of our NEW apartment!

Facebook for Entertainment

Hey guys, I know I’ve been out of action for a bit. Lots going on and haven’t had the time or ability to do anything tiny related. However, I’ve been posting regularly on our facebook page Living the Tiny Life. That’s where I post interesting and sometimes even entertaining tiny ideas, furniture, and have conversations and polls with readers.

Please come on by there and hang out, leave a comment and know that you are not forgotten about!

Thanks for reading. I look forward to being up and at it again in a few months!

P.S.

If the link doesn’t take you to our page, you can find it in the search under the same name.

Ciao!

2014 in review

Coming soon: “The Tiny Life Christmas,” followed by: “The Realities of Trying Tiny.” Until then, the WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog, check it out! Thank you for reading~ Sincerely, Audrey. Happy New Year, hope it’s a great one!

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 840 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 14 trips to carry that many people.

Apologies

Once again, I’ve been battling many things, illness, pain and most recently the crash of my micro SD card I rely on for photos for this blog. It’s old, had a glitch and I lost everything on it. So I must start again. I promise to do a Tiny House Christmas post soon!

Thanks for reading, I appreciate your patience and loyalty!!

Sincerely,

Audrey
