Retro 500 Sq/Ft Apartment

While the style of this apartment isn’t for me, it is well done and very cohesive.  I think it best that I don’t say much and just experience it through the images, as the apartment is very visually driven.  Make sure you click the “read more” link to see all the photos.

Here is good video about how the economy today is making some traditional home owners rethink the McMansion and of course pursuing the Tiny House Movement.  Sitting at a around 425 square feet, this house is decked out with really high end finishing touches.  Basically the owner is taking a traditional home budget and dumping it into a small foot plan for the costs savings and simplified living.

Great Tool For Life Goals

I found this great website called 43things.com It is basically a website that lets you input your life goals, rearrange them, but what’s more, is that it connects you with others that have the same goals so that you can learn and discuss it with them.  It also connects you with those whom have completed the goal so that they can share how they achieved it.  It’s a simple website, but has amazing implications and is a great source for inspiration for me.  Here is my short list for example:

Practical Tips For Downsizing Everything….Part I Forget

I have written several posts on how to downsize and eliminate lots of things in your life.  Whether it getting rid of physical things or clearing your day planner for time with yourself, it’s all important.  Today I wanted to share an awesome little tip that I found years ago.  What am I talking about?CIMG1163 I am talking about all those club cards that you have to keep on your keychain.  They annoy the heck out of me, the idea that they pretend that they are giving you discounts off your groceries irks me, but the point is they make your keychain huge.

Maybe it’s just me but I try to keep my keychain as small as possible, because you pretty much carry it with you everywhere.  So Just One Club Card is a great website which allows you to combine your club cards into a single business card size card.  I keep this in my wallet and my keychain free of these silly things.
