Sometimes we need to have fun and think outside the box when it comes to how we live.

There is a movement in the United States, and throughout the world, called “Tiny Houses.”  These eco-friendly houses can be for one or two people or more.

As I learn about tiny houses, I am reminded that I can live with a lot less than I have assumed is necessary. It has sent me back to my closet to de-clutter once again.

On CBS News, Jay Shafer of the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company gives us a tour  of his 96-square-foot home.

YouTube’s videos on Tiny Houses can entertain you for hours if you are interested.

But seriously, let us think together. What if we didn’t spend most of our income on our houses and cars, how much more of a difference could we make in the world?  I know it’s a crazy way of thinking.

So tell me, what do tiny houses get you thinking about in your life?
