Hi - I'm Pam. Retired at 62 by choice and left Orange County, CA. Best thing I've done so far.
Moved with husband and Dad to 1000 sq ft house. Not paid for, not sure if we'll stay or downsize more after Dad's gone. He's in assisted living now, but the house is in his name, and he's unwilling to sell. (Thinks we NEED the house, but I'm not so sure). But it's certainly affordable, and we've done a lot to make it more energy efficient. Not sure if I can "advertise" here with links, so I'll just say I've learned a lot from Marla Cilly and Mary Hunt lately but still have a ways to go. We're living on just our Social Security. It's doable, thank God, but I'm always looking to cut some more so we can get some travel in.

~Pamela lives in Fulton, Missouri.

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from The Lord, which made heaven and earth.
Psalm 121:1,2

Rikki,

Another great thing about where I live we have a Public Utility District (PUD). There is NO for profit electricity. It is publicly owned. My power bill is about 1/2 than city of Portland, OR. area folks.

It would be great if a PUD is available in your area. The savings are amazing.

Liz, that sounds so wonderful! I'd love to go that small some day. I was looking at some 400 sf studios today.

I live in a park model RV. I have about 312 SF. It is wonderful. I have just what I need and not one thing more. There is no place to put it! My kids really "tricked" the interior out with recessed lighting, laminate wood floors, painted walls, a "regular" bathroom and a on-demand water heater.

I have had 6 people for dinner. My grand kids have a place to sleep when they stay. I have a beautiful fenced garden/yard/patio area. I can live very comfortably on my SS Disability income.

Can't remember if I introduced myself or not, so here goes again. I'm frugal to a fault. I've been getting rid of most of what I own for over a year now, and still going. I have my eye on a cute 500 foot cottage that will be available for rent next year, and I have a lot more divesting myself of "stuff" to be able to live there. Want to get down to only what I can't live without and what I use on a daily basis. So far, I've gone from a 3/1/1 house stuffed full to moving into a small 2 br apt. and now I'm rooming with someone in a divided house where I have control of about 560 sq. ft., so this is the prep for moving into my cottage. Looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Hello

Because of financial circumstance I was forced to a simple lifestyle. After a adjustment period I have grown love it. I cannot imagine living any other way.

My goal is to get healthy as I can be. I am looking forward to seeing how other folks have adjusted to a simple way of life
