8 Reasons why Tiny Houses are Smarter!
In short, tiny houses are bringing people back to the basics of what is important. After I read the book ” The 4 Hour Work Week”. I had a light bulb moment of wanting to slow down, work less, spend more close time with family and do more stuff I enjoy. The big houses are controlling our lives? After researching many websites here are the best 8 Reasons why Tiny houses are Smarter!
1.Tiny Houses are Eco-Friendly
2. Less food- this was a great tip from, Tiny House Listings
If you have a small pantry, you’ll have a small amount of food in your house. If you can look through your tiny house kitchen window and see fresh vegetables growing in it, you’ll spend less produce. By eating less food in your tiny house, you’ll keep your food bill and weight down.
3. Mentally Freeing.
As is the case with all of our possessions, the more we own, the more they own us. And the more stuff we own, the more mental energy is held hostage by them. The same is absolutely true with our largest, most valuable asset. Buy small and free your mind.
4. Less Cleaning- Great idea from Rowdy Kittens
A tiny house requires significantly less cleaning and maintenance and that makes me very happy. I didn’t realize how much time we spent cleaning our large apartment until we moved to our new home in Sacramento. Instead of cleaning we spent more time riding our bikes outdoors. Yay for less scrubbing, vacuuming and sweeping!
5. Less stress, happier says Rare.us
Without the monster mortgage that goes with a monster house, people are finding they are less stressed about their finances, which is usually the most stressful subject for people. Studies have shown the more time you have to spend maintaining, cleaning and servicing your house, the more stressed you are.
6. Tiny homes make close families.
In our house mom.me suggest there is an actual physical closeness that helps us with our emotional closeness. It’s hard to feel lonely when you are near those who love you. It encourages sharing, communication, and cooperation. I don’t need a baby monitor to know my baby needs me and I always know what my kindergartener is up to.
7. A tiny house encourages minimalism.
I like to say that my little home keeps me honest. I simply do not have the space to amass loads and loads of things. It also inspires me to sort and purge my children’s things regularly. We are by no means living in a stark environment, but our small house helps keep my hoarding tendencies in check.
