5 Ways to Maximize a Small Living Space

While living in a smaller space can surely feel confining and restricting, it certainly isn’t a reason to feel discouraged. Smaller spaces can have a lot of personality and there are actually a lot of handy tricks that can help you maximize your home and make the most out of what you have available. So, instead of despairing and coming to terms with the fact that you’re facing a lifelong imprisonment, you better take matters into your own hands. If you‘re still wondering how to actually…

Tips and tricks for transitioning into small-space living--without leaving the city. 

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

Living in a tiny home is a dream come true for many of us, but what if we're not ready to leave the city? Downsizing your living space is possible without investing in a rural tiny house. Leading a life of urban voluntary simplicity while earning big city wages can even fund your tiny aspirations.

This discussion explores the myriad of living space alternatives for the downsizing urban professional. After over 4 years of living rent-free in Los Angeles, saving over $55,000 in living costs while reporting on folks doing the same in other cities, I relate my experiences for other cityfolk interested in exploring a simpler lifestyle to meet their tiny goals. Backyard dwellings. Live/Work solutions. The stationary #vanlife. Maintaining your earnings while drastically lowering your living expenses can prepare you for the practical challenges of living tiny and save you cash for your future tiny house.
