Given our financial capacity at present, I think it’s only appropriate that we bought a tiny house. The mortgage payments are lower and the insurance premiums are smaller as compared to those of a big property.
I love having a tiny house. It’s easy to clean and easy to maintain. If something gets broken, we could easily have it repaired or replaced. Like when we had our built-in cabinet organizer updated, we didn’t spend much because it’s just a small one, too.
Another thing I like about having a tiny house is when it’s time to do some general cleaning. I know I won’t be exhausted at the end of the day because there’s not much space and stuff to clean. For a lazy person (but only when it comes to household chores!) like me, that’s already a big deal.
Having a small space is also aligned to my goal of simple living. And if I’d be more serious about embracing a minimalist lifestyle in the future, having a tiny house is definitely a good start in that direction. 🙂

It’s really a challenge if your house has limited space. In fact, I am currently experiencing that. I just bought a bunk bed the other but to my surprise, the bed doesn’t fit the extension room. Now I need to call a professional to help us adjust the length of the bed. Hayy.. added gastos pa! 🙁
I guess it becomes a challenge having a limited space when you have children. Kami kasi dadalawa lang sa house kaya manageable pa. Oh no, added gastos nga yang sa bed nyo. Hehe. 🙂
We have a condo so I appreciate what you mean about easy to clean and maintain. The older I get, the more wala na ako energy. Pagakyat pa lang nang vacuum sa itaas, hingal na ko hehe. Tama ka, conducive for a minimalist lifestyle kasi kung minsan, I am tempted to buy something napipigil ako kasi walang paglagyan. Ang kotse di na mapark sa garage dahil puno nang junk. LOL
Oh well, sabi nga, the home is where the heart is 🙂
Korek, mas marami pa pwede paggamitan ng energy like cooking! Pag maliit ang house, iwas gastos din diba? Hehe. 🙂
Naku sana nga kami we’ll have our own place, kahit tiny lang, soon! Mahirap makipisan eh. 🙁
Good luck on that, sis. Kaya nyo yan. I say the earlier, the better. 🙂
Our house in Laguna is tiny, and you can just imagine my problems — me (a hoarder)+tiny space=baliw-baliwan.
Haha, naiimagine ko nga TPS! Kelan ka ba magpapa-garage sale, punta ako, sa Laguna, hehe. 🙂
Andito sa Dumaguete ang most ng stuff ko. While the apartment we’re staying in is bigger than our Laguna home is bigger, parang kulang na kulang pa rin sa space. Like I said, hoarder. Maybe I should post them online. 🙂
Yeah, sell some of them. Okay yun. But good luck I’m sure you’ll have a hard time choosing which ones to sell and which ones to keep. Hehe. 🙂
Mas gusto ko din yung small lang ang house pero tama din sila limited ang space lalo na pag maraming gamit. Ang ok lang talaga sa kanya mas madali i maintain.
Korek, mahirap talaga ang limited space sa maraming gamit. Kaya iwas muna ako sa pagbili ng decorative at mga unnecessary items. 🙂
