Dee William's life changed in an instant, with a near-death experience in the aisle of her local grocery store. Diagnosed with a heart condition at age forty-one, she was suddenly reminded that life is short and time is precious. She wanted to spend more time with the people and things she loved and more time doing the things she loved. She decided she would rather have financial freedom and the ultimate luxury of time and that would require down-sizing.
She decided she would sell her larger home and build an eighty-four-square foot house--on her own, from the ground up and begin a new life. She can now list everything she owns on one sheet of paper, her monthly housekeeping bills amount to about eight dollars, and it takes her approximately ten minutes to clean her entire house.
The BIG TINY is a great story on the benefits of slowing down, scaling back, and appreciating the most important things in life.
