Making More Adjustments

As I continue living tiny, I find things to change to make my life easier.
Having a place for my shoes is something I needed. So...

This works great! The really heavy ones like work boots still have to go on the floor, but for the others. This is perfect!

Lots an Lots has happened!

Wow! I have sold the big house (1,600 sq. feet) Emptied it out (35+ years of stuff) The "estate/Moving Sale" took place in 108 degree heat! 
Now I'm living full time Tiny! Legally, as caretaker of my old property for the new owners. Rent and Utility free for the next 5 years.  Whew! Time to take some deep breaths and relax!
Making a few tweaks as I find what works and what doesn't. 
Remember my wardrobe?
The Purple one? I had been using it in my big house for 9 months, with no issues. Well, in the middle of the Estate collapsed!!
Great! Ugh! So for awhile I had a big pile of clothes then I hung a rod, grabbed an old bookcase and some plastic carts and made do. 
Now that I have a little time, I have redone  it right with some closet organizers pulled from an old closet in the big house.

Now that looks better! The wire shelves have heavy cardboard on them so they don't leave wire marks on the clothes. I will continue weeding out what I don't love and wear as time goes on.
I'm also pursuing learning about "Permaculture Village building"  with the thought that once my 5 years here are up, I would really love to live in a self sustaining intentional community.
