Tiny Living, reside in a tiny home where there is less need for too much. You can earn money by selling much of what you do no longer need, plus it allows you to give items to family members now so they can enjoy them rather then later. Wht burden living loved ones with clutter you have collected and left behind for them to deal with? Is this really the legacy you wish to give them? Declutter your life it will add to it in so many ways besies money even. Just try it. If it worries you, just try living in your garage if it is 2 car. An average tiny home park model built by reputable manufactured home companies are around 400 squar feet.  Many resort style parks allow them for a monthly lot rent fee with loads of ameninties for you.

Get in your employers 401k savings plan as soon as you can and contribute as much as you can and you are guaranteed seven figures at retirement!  💰
