Tiny Living and Purging

I have been saying for a long time I want to build a tiny house and I am getting my introduction to living in a tiny space. I have been known to complain about living in 500 sq feet but now with moving to right around 220 sf ft I am realize how much stuff I had crammed into 500 sq ft!!

I loaded up my car and took a load of stuff to my mom’s for a garage sale we are going to have next month and my friend and step brother were there for my birthday dinner and I loaded up their jeep with stuff she is going to store in her crawl space.  I thought I had taken every thing I wasn’t going to need on the boat and walked through the door at 10 pm, looked down and there is a box I forgot and then I looked under the bed and found a whole bunch more stuff that I wanted to store at her place. How many Christmas decorations do I need? really!!! I sorted through them and threw a lot away but I still have 3 rubber maid containers of Christmas decorations not including the dicken’s village. Where I am going to set up a Dicken’s Village I don’t know, and I think the boat will be a little crowded if I display all 33 of my NutCrackers but I could not bring myself to part with them so in the crawl space they go.

I am trying to auction off my furniture on Bidding wars and had some interest so hopefully they will be gone by the end of tomorrow.

Thank God I didn’t go to Oliver because I would never have made it in time.

I am posting a few pictures of the boat. I made the bed and put a few things in there the other day. But lots to fit in there yet.

Well, back to packing! At least the sun is shining!

The back bedroom where I will sleep. I made the bed right away so it would feel like home to Stella.

On Suite bathroom with toilet, shower and sink. I think I am going to make the shower into a closet seeing as I have the main big bathroom (I used the term "big" loosely) and it has a bigger shower. I can still use the toilet and sink in the onsuite
