Link Love: 50

Link Love Link Love is 50! 50 posts old! I hope you read that as Sally O’Malley. There’s some good stuff out there and I’m bringing it!

Our story was featured on a French site this week! (If you don’t speak French, you can translate it with Google Chrome.)

Did you know the CEO of Zappos lives in an Airstream in a trailer park?! Great minds think alike, folks.

“There is NOTHING more cleansing than throwing shit out.” YES, YES, YES.

Let’s all take mystery trips with our best friends! (Best friends, if you are reading, I am so down!)

What $1,500 a month in rent would get you in cities around the world.

These modern murals are insane. I love the flamingo.

This 11 foot wide home is LOVELY.

Sage Tidbits of Cleaning Advice I Learned from the Shakers.

Geneva makes a plain t-shirt into a classy halter top. I love this tutorial, usually cutting up t-shirts turns into a hot mess. This is so much classier.

5 ways to pay yourself first.

How hard are you trying, really. I love this one. Sometimes I am truly trying hard, but there’s other times where I just tell myself I’m trying hard. Ooops.

Don’t forget, on Monday we’ll be discussing Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life.* It’s a short read, so if you haven’t read it yet, you still have time.

This guy lives in a “teeny” house in the city with no bills, no debt and no waste. I can’t help but think it’d be easier to do in sunny, mild San Diego, but it’s definitively admirable and aspirational.

Did you find anything interesting this week? Talk to me in the comments!

    Good morning Melanie;

    I am moving soon; not sure where yet; I just got an offer from the US Govt to work as a TSO; Transporation Security Officer; but not sure where or which airport I will be going too. I have thought about getting an Airstream; but I think of the expense of also renting a place to park it; which may turn out to be about the same as renting an apartment. Is their a guide that tells you state by state; where you can park these airstreams; prices; etc……..plus I have a dog. I am currently in Lawrence Kansas renting an apartment.

      Congrats on the job! With some Googling I found this: http://earlyretirementextreme.com/place-to-park-and-live-in-our-r.html

      Their advice was not an RV park but a mobile home park. This is a website for mobile home parks in the US: https://www.mhvillage.com/Communities/Search.php

      You could also try putting an ad on Craigslist to park on someone’s land. If you end up in a less expensive area, you could also buy some land yourself. If the land already has power, a septic system and a well, even better! I know close to my area you can buy a small plot of land with utilities for about $300 a month.

      Hope that helps.
