Hi Minimalist Mamas!


Just checking in...


We are moving again, and downsizing once again as well. It's funny. People are offering to help me pack, and I collected 15 medium-sized boxes that I know for a fact we won't be able to fill. It's pretty ridiculous. I could seriously wait until the day before and still be super organized with the move. There is very little to pack that we don't use on a daily basis. So far I was able to pack up 5 boxes of things... art, winter items, extra linens, office/school items, and a few kitchen things I can live without until we get to the new place. What's left is our clothes, toiletries, furniture, food, and toys. Pretty wild, actually. I am far more minimalist than I thought. I love it!


Have also started attacking the financial situation to try to save more money to buy a tiny house in a few years. Looking at the Tumbleweed Lusby model... as it's got a bedroom and a sleeping loft, so Moo can have his own room when he's bigger. After that I just have to figure out where to park it... and maybe how to tow it too. :)

Very cool!

We moved many times when I was a kid and it was so stressful to pack, haul and relocate everything once we got to our new place. 

good for you, and super cool to plan for a tiny house!!

I love Tumbleweed houses but for some reason I had never noticed the Lusby before. I've just resigned myself to waiting until the kids are grown before I could have one. I'm so excited because my family would actually fit in it!

I never heard of Tumbleweed houses before, but they are darling! I LOVE having a small house (although at 990 sq feet, it's huge compared to the tumbleweeds!). Everything is so much more manageable and I enjoy the challenge of coming up with creative ways to make the most out of a small space. Plus, I'm forced to get rid of excess. Good luck with your new home and saving for the lusby smile.gif

Any updates Mommel about your tumbleweed house? We're downsizing from a large rental and buying a 558 sq ft cottage here in the UK for 2 adults and 2 children and I'm looking for inspiration!

I am also a huge Tumbleweed fan. They are just too wonderful. I went to the workshop in Madison last year and it was so inspirational. Jay went on to some other stuff, I hear?
