Simple Living – How to Live a Simpler Life

Simple Living is all about having the best life you can no matter where you live or your situation. In our married life so far we’ve made the most of living in a rental, in an apartment, in a camper, and finally in a place of our own. Little House Living is all about being organized, happy, and settled in your own homestead, no matter if it’s rural or urban! Check out all these links to learn more about what the simple life really is about.
