Have you always felt a little out of place in the city? If so, you’re not alone. The rat race isn’t for everyone. It’s common to yearn for a quieter life. However, continuing to battle the daily grind often seems easier than making the change.
Routine is a hard thing to break. Would you even know where to start if you wanted to get away from it all? The high cost of living and mortgage repayments mean many people are forced to adopt the work-to-live mentality. It isn’t until you have a moment to reflect that you begin to wonder if it’s all worth it…you’ve likely had a lot of those moments over the last few months.
So, when will you get time to enjoy all the things you’ve worked so hard for? If you appreciate the simple things of everyday life, perhaps it’s finally time to make a change. One option that has risen in popularity in recent years is the simpler (smaller) life offered by tiny homes.
Live More, With Less
Don’t be surprised if you have adjusted well to a quieter way of life in recent months. The opportunity to consider what it is you truly value is a silver lining. Think about all those gizmos and gadgets. They’re all well and good, but when they’re cluttering up your home without any purpose…you begin to question why you need them in the first place.
It makes you think. Did you ever really need it all? Simplifying our lives has become a normal process of late. Perhaps you’re among those who are learning to appreciate what they already have, rather than constantly chasing the desire for more. This is where realising the joy of living a simplified life all begins.
Live with less and appreciate more. It’s this concept that sits at the heart of tiny living, and what inspires many to finally make the change themselves. With so many inspirational designs on the market, you can create a minimalist lifestyle that works for you.
Whether you want to simplify your life or go completely off the grid, you don’t need to return to your busy life once all of this is over. You can hold onto your new, simplified way of living by downsizing to a tiny home or cabin.
Clear Up Clutter
It’s simple. The more space you have, the more excuses you’re going to find to fill it. Before you know it, you’ve got a whole lot of ‘stuff’ that no longer ‘sparks joy’. Cue Marie Kondo.
It’s no secret that an uncluttered home and a clear mind go hand in hand. You’re essentially freeing up time by freeing up space. While it’s always worthwhile to have a good clean out, downsizing your home will take decluttering to a whole new level. Once you realise how cleansing it feels to declutter and downsize, the benefits of the less-is-more approach will become clear.
Portable cabins, containers, pods, and all other varieties of tiny homes put the lid on clutter completely. It’s much easier to appreciate the space you have when there’s a little less of it. The space inside a tiny home is highly functional. Everything has a purpose and you’ll want to make use of all 100 to 400 square feet of it. Downsizing is the ultimate decluttering solution.
Ditch Lifelong Debt
The tiny home movement has given thousands the opportunity to own a house or holiday home without drowning in debt. For most Americans, just keeping a roof over their head requires around one-third to one-half of their income. It’s not surprising that so many people live paycheck to paycheck.
You don’t have to be yet another statistic. A portable cabin, pod, or tiny home is highly affordable. With everything you need under one tiny roof, you’ll have all the comforts of simple living without worrying about how to pay for it.
The flexibility and affordability offered by a portable cabin have seen the trend take off across the world, with tiny homes in New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and even right here in the United States offering an affordable alternative to standard living and lifelong mortgages.
Portable tiny homes and cabins are also exactly that: portable. Making a transportable cabin your home means you have the freedom to enjoy your tiny space wherever you like. Experience all those things you’ve been longing to do with the comforts of home alongside you.
