    Simple living heroes in the news!

    Hey, I thought it might be fun to have a thread of simple living folks appearing in the news or in the alternative media.

    I found this article this morning. They are a very cool couple!

    http://www.ktoo.org/2015/07/10/adven...-house-wheels/

    They built a tiny house for $8,600 and right-sized their lives.

    Post an article or video from the news or alternative media of simple living heroes you come across! It can be a new article, a new-ish article, or just maybe new to someone on here.

    I could handle 1 in that space, 2- IDK, that's the smallest tiny house like ever! This will probably come off wrong, but I have trouble understanding giving up their jobs. What if they don't work enough quarters for Soc Security and how will they save for retirement if they are not working so can't use IRAs and 401k? That probably shows I don't "get" the minimalist life style and I guess I don't if you can't plan for the future. But I re-read, Kelly is going to re-evaluate after a year

    I love tiny houses in general, but for me, there would have to be more than a curtain separating the bathroom from the kitchen.

    We should become drug addicts and get arrested because these people are quite well and happy in their jail cells!

    now that's as simple as it gets.

    Okay, I admit, I did not watch the video of Hotel Prius. But now I have. What exactly is an organic ​life?

    I dunno! haha

    I think it is slang. Like "Sweet-ass" or authentic and cool all at once.
