Over 31 years of marriage, Jim and I have upsized and downsized 14 times. We’ve gone from a 4,000 square foot home to a 700 square foot sailing catamaran, from a 700 square foot duplex on the beach to a 2,000 square foot waterfront condo and more. We’ve added, donated, and sold stuff. And at the end of the day, we’ve learned the good, the bad, and the ugly about ourselves and our living habits.
We've poured all the lessons we've learned over the years, along with proven tips to help you on your downsizing journey in this guide to downsizing. Integrated with the guide is a workbook with over 30 pages of worksheets.
We hope that while downsizing that you will begin to discover things about yourself. About the way, you want to live going forward, what makes you happy and brings you joy and what drags you down.
Along this journey, you may discover that living tiny is not for you, and that is okay. You may find that your happy place, where you thrive, is somewhere in the middle of living tiny and living modestly.

Why We Wrote A Practical Guide to Downsizing When You Are Over 40
Jim and I wrote this book as a roadmap to help others navigate the journey of downsizing. We will help guide you through choosing the right tiny home, whether that is a traditional tiny home, a tiny home on wheels, a converted school bus, or even a boat.
Through lots of boxes, lots of shed tears, and even a few arguments, we've learned not only how to navigate the challenge of downsizing but to embrace the journey of downsizing.
The key is a mindset shift, and that mindset shift has led us on a journey of changed habits, and the ability to shift gears from large, to tiny, to modest, and back to tiny living without breaking a sweat.
