5 Ways to Live in Small Spaces
One day, I discovered that a smaller home with a smaller mortgage would mean we could have a happier lifestyle, with less debt and stress and more time and money. So we squished our family into a "two-bedroom cottage," and here are some of the ways it saves us money and helps us build a happy family.
