Earlier this summer I said good-bye to #DukeTheTravelTrailer. I briefly explained my reasonings for moving out in this recent post, but it was time for a new adventure. My parents and I had been discussing the opportunity of investing in the Austin market and it seemed like a good time to finally . . .
Whether you live in a small, tiny or large space, organizing your stuff (and keeping it organized!) is paramount. Clutter can make a space of any size feel impossibly small. Investing in useful storage solutions can make all the difference when living in a home of any size, but especially living . . .

Figuring out how to pay for your tiny home or RV can be a daunting task if you're not flush with cash.

How in the world has it already been almost 3 months since we moved into #DukeTheTravelTrailer?! RV living is definitely different than what I envisioned, but not necessarily in a bad way.
