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!

Tuesday Thoughts: The Less I Needed

the less I needed When I gave up the majority of my possessions to live in an Airstream, I felt more free than I ever have. I gave up so much “stuff,” but I gained much more in return– I gained financial freedom and emotional freedom. I gained some peace of mind. I now know that I can live with less. I can thrive in 188 square feet. I can live without a hairdryer and dishwasher and a washing machine. I can live without a traditional house. I am a fighter. I can do hard things.  And that lesson, my friends, is priceless.

love,
melanie
