In 2011, I radically downsized my possessions for a short stint in a 15’ travel trailer. A year later I took on My 200 Things Challenge. I’ve now lived in a 12’ diameter yurt and three tiny houses on wheels with fewer possessions than most people keep in their kitchens! Now I’m offering an exciting e-course to help other people through their downsizing process, too.
Early Bird Special (20% off!) available through December 31st. Also, sign up with an accountability buddy and you both get $10 off when you sign up and additional incentives for completing your Challenges. (These two discounts CAN be combined until the Early Bird Special expires on December 31st!) Register here: http://www.nichedesignbuild.com/store/p22/Downsizing_E-Course.html.
Here’s the e-course description:
What if were surrounded only by the things and people you love best? What if you had just the right amount of stuff and liked it all? What if you were cheered on throughout your downsizing process?
If you’re ready to take a good look at your stuff, this e-course is for you. We’ll address our relationship with stuff, discuss needs and wants to figure out what really matters, set priorities, and evaluate our possessions. We’ll identify old habits and clutter magnets and tackle problem areas in our homes. Then we’ll develop organizational systems and new habits to reduce clutter. And the best part is you’ll get to do this with the encouragement of other people who are embarking on a similar journey.
In this seven-week series, we’ll cover everything from keeping track of our keys to developing a wardrobe of clothes we love. This seven-week e-course will include a weekly lesson, a weekly challenge, and a weekly check-in with your fellow downsizers. The January course begins on January 17 and runs through February 28. Check-ins are Sunday evenings at 5pm PST (8PM EST).
Please note, the reading materials for this course’s lessons will cost approximately $30 if you purchase them. They’re great books and I still have them on my e-reader. Of course, you’re encouraged to check them out from your local library to save money and space. (See, less stuff!)
