The Big Tiny: A Built-It-Myself Memoir by Dee Williams

Dee was diagnosed with a heart condition at age 41, and she decided to make some major lifestyle changes. Her big house kept her working hard in order to pay the mortgage and she spent her weekends working on the house. What if she didn't have this big house to take care of and pay for? So she downgraded to this little itty-bitty house (84 square feet!).

I liked Dee's counter-cultural ideas. There was something meandering about the book though and it could have used some tighter editing.

I did start thinking about how I could downsize my life and house. I'm happy to say that in the next week or so, we're giving away one of the three beds in our house. Why do we need three beds? It's a start!
