I'm just getting into this kind of stuff and feel like being a sponge for any information anyone wants to throw at me. Let's talk about it! 

What are some goals of yours or steps you want to take towards this kind of lifestyle? Or if youre already living it, how has it changed your life?

This is something I have always been drawn to and logistically I am unable to do this right now.  However, the past 4 years I have been teaching myself how to make most house hold things from scratch.  Once I am older, I can live off the grid and know how to make/prep my food without using store bought or processed things.  Also learned how to make my own household products.

Good luck on this adventure!!

I don't think you can live "off the grid" these days, I'm pretty sure even Big Foot has a Smartphone & Facebook account.

I've been in a slow process of getting rid of excess things and clothing I know I'll never wear again for the past so many years. I've still got a long way to go. I did move my bedroom out of the bigger room to one of the smaller ones recently though, and that has been quite helpful to my mental state just not having all of my clothing and everything in the same room as my bed and books

more into dense urban housing & transit & community gardens & such than tiny houses but latter is a little tempting. just feels like we couldn't really dump our shit & fly to another continent one fine day if we committed to a depreciating house on wheels that we value more than literally any buyer would

I always try to reduce tho

A new movement has begun in America and it's all about sustainability. More and more people are downsizing their homes and living a simpler life. The tiny house movement has caught on as a way to reduce your ecological footprint and live a more sustainable lifestyle.

There are many reasons why people are choosing to downsize their homes. For some, it's about living a more minimalist lifestyle. Others want to reduce their carbon footprint or save money on energy costs. Whatever the reason, the tiny house movement is gaining momentum as more and more people choose to downsize their lives.

Tiny houses can be built from scratch or converted from existing structures like sheds or garages. They're usually between 100 and 400 square feet and can be constructed with eco-friendly materials like recycled lumber or solar panels. This makes them much more sustainable than traditional homes.
