There are so many reasons to consider living in a small house.
But when it really comes down to it I believe that we can boil it down to just one reason.
Yesterday Laura LaVoie explained to you how simple living isn’t always easy living and I think she makes a great point.
She pointed out how some folks think that trading in your modern conveniences for the simple life is only an exchange of problems.
Today I intend on summing it up for you with one idea that I believe is powerful for anyone who decides to use it and put it into action in their own life.
This idea isn’t just life altering for you, but also for your family because it has a big impact on them too.

I’m going to talk about the rat race. You’re all familiar with it, I know that. It’s the idea that we work, eat, sleep and cannot seem to get ahead. Why does this happen?
I think it’s because most of us are living beyond our means. In essence, spending just about every penny that we earn. But what happens when we lower our needs?
If you can lower your monthly expenses by moving into a small house you’ll find that the change will trickle down to many other aspects of your life.
This creates just enough abundance in your world to actually get ahead every month. To have a little something extra left over to spend, enjoy, give, and save. And that’s why you should consider a smaller home, apartment, studio, or even a tiny house.
