Organizing small closets

The clothing storage is fairly generous in our 5th wheel – yes I just said that, out loud. The three of us share a 5′ wide closet and four drawers. There is a small vertical (hanging) closet where we store our linens and towels. We all shared one small walk-in closet in our townhouse for … Read more Organizing small closets

Anyone can cook… in an RV oven!

I’m not a brilliant cook. My Mother wasn’t even a good cook. It’s ok, she would tell you so. My childhood menu consisted largely of red meat & potatoes, canned/boxed goods, and spaghetti. It was practically mandatory to go to the local seafood restaurant once a week (a tradition that I really loved, thanks Mom!) and … Read more Anyone can cook… in an RV oven!

My first experience with consumer guilt: Bells and Whistles.

For the first time since embarking on our purposeful, minimalistic adventure I had an experience of consumer guilt. But it’s not what you might expect… We have been waiting to celebrate our sticks and bricks closing with the purchase of new iPhones for all of us. Michael’s is cracked and takes forever to load apps … Read more My first experience with consumer guilt: Bells and Whistles.

Control and stuff, or experiences?

Any sense of control you have in your lives is simply an illusion that you’ve allowed to persist. Your life could end in the next few minutes, or you could live to 120 with modern medicine. You can take actions to minimize exposure, but ultimately you’re here for a limited time. Worrying about “stuff” and … Read more Control and stuff, or experiences?

Waking up to the Epic Mini Life dream. Or, WE’RE LIVE!

This morning started like any other day. Rossi at my feet, Hayden next to me, and Heather pushed way too far to the edge of the bed to be comfortable. We’re sleeping on a full size mattress in a space built for a queen, with 90 pounds of dog negotiating for space. Zizi is in … Read more Waking up to the Epic Mini Life dream. Or, WE’RE LIVE!

Tiny/Small living and reaching a larger audience

A friend of mine (from Boulder) offered this reply to one of our Facebook posts. I started to write a simple reply, but it turned into enough to warrant its own blog post. Strap in. 🙂 You know… the public aversion to tiny homes is partially due to the projected hubris around “how small I … Read more Tiny/Small living and reaching a larger audience

Epic Mini Life, relationships, revenue, and more.

As the concept of Epic Mini Life has evolved, it’s become clear that we will have the opportunity to reach individuals that share the same desire to live life differently. They’re done with the idea of a 9 to 5 job, and want to turn their lives into an experience. Epic Mini Life, for us, … Read more Epic Mini Life, relationships, revenue, and more.

Launch day is upon us, securing Leeloo, and the first leg!

We’ve been planning, discussing, learning, and otherwise practically obsessed with this new chapter in the journey of life. The reality is starting to sink in, and it’s not all rainbows and unicorns. The truth of the matter is that as the time nears, the more we realize how much more there is left to do, … Read more Launch day is upon us, securing Leeloo, and the first leg!

Pioneer Woman, truck stops, and periods.

24 (twenty four) items per page: Pages of tampons at Target: 4 Pages of max-pads at Target: 4 Pages of panty liners at Target: 2 Why in hell do I know this? More importantly, why does it matter? It was a circuitous journey, to be certain. I’m planning the first leg of the arrival of … Read more Pioneer Woman, truck stops, and periods.
