It’s another Monday and to be quite honest with you, my brain is in sleep mode. I spent the weekend doing some gardening, painting the house, replacing a window and cleaning and I’m beat. I have loads to write but my brain isn’t participating, and for the life of me I can’t find my purse. So instead of boring you to death, how about a cheapskate video?!
We are so overdue for one of these.
Last week we spoke a little bit about minimalism and the tiny house movement, but I wanted to add a little bit more to that topic, especially after all the work that I did this weekend. It might be a new movement here in the U.S., but the Japanese are experts at living in tiny homes.
I know that the tsunami has devastated the northern part of Japan, but I am confident that they will rebuild, and perhaps they will rebuild some tiny homes. Plus, I love the ultra-modern Japanese aesthetic. I love that they sacrifice very little to live this lifestyle. It might work if I were Japanese sized. Check out this video from one year ago.
And then of course, a U.S. version.
