Living real small in the real world

So often the “small” live we see online and in magazines is what I like to call “decor porn”.  It’s so pretty!  Everything is clean and well organized, yes, but it’s super expensive, the built ins are truly built in, everything matches and was purchased at high-concept high-priced stores.

But there are actually people living in small spaces like us, doing it bit by bit and having to fit their lives into a very tight area.  But they are loving it all the same.

Thanks to Life Edited, we don’t have to start poking our noses into our neighbours’ homes to see someone living the real small life in real life.

RealSmallIn this story on their site, they tell the tale of Marya, her two cats and (cute) dog, who all live in 350 square feet in her home in Florida.  She also works out of the space, which is why she has boxes piled up.

As she says,

I live in one large room which serves as office, sleeping area, kitchen, and small sitting space. There’s a divider to separate off my bed from the rest of the room; it has bookshelves on one side and clothes closets on the other. My bathroom has a stall shower and a stacked washer/dryer. The kitchen area has under-counter fridge and freezer, 2-plate stove top, and a few built-in cupboards. I have a minimum of pots, pans, dishes but can entertain 4 people comfortably for dinner.

She has furnished her home with items from big stores like K-Mart, and has a cozy and comfy place that she owns outright, paying a monthly maintenance fee to the complex (which contains a pool).

It’s great to see that micro-living is within the grasp of people who are just like us, just wanting the simpler life and enjoying keeping her belongings to a minimum while she lives life to the max.
