Leanne Stephens is a passionate advocate for tiny living and decluttering your life. She believes we need to move toward alternative housing which is affordable and energy efficient.
On this website, Leanne shares the stories of people who are living the tiny life or are in the process of building, to give them a voice and to show others that yes, it is possible, and people just like you are making it happen. She teaches you what you need to do to get started, and encourages and supports you along the way.
In her blog, Leanne shares her own experiences and teaches others how to declutter and downsize. She tells about living tiny in a converted pool house, and about moving 5 times in 2 years, which makes you get rid of stuff fast. These days, Leanne and her husband Craig live much of the time in a hotel room with a 2 burner stove and the world’s smallest closet. She leads an active business and social life with very few clothes!
In her spare time, Leanne attends and volunteers at tiny house festivals and community events. She volunteers for Hope Outreach Center, which provides emergency assistance to people in her community, and is passionate about animals, travel, volunteering, and living a simple, grateful life.
I’m Leanne Stephens. I grew up in a family of five living in a two bedroom house. We had one of everything: one bathroom, one television, one telephone, one camera, even one cat. We had a one car garage which we could actually park our one car in. Somehow that was enough for us, and we must have been happy because we all still enjoy hanging out together!
These days, my husband and I have much more stuff, and even though we have more space, it seems there’s never enough room for anything. We waste a lot of time moving the clutter around, or trying to find something when we actually do need it.
Our vow is to get back to basics, to decide what is essential to our lives and keep only that, whether it’s housing, belongings, or even activities. If this is what you want, too, we will give you the tools you need in this website. I’m so happy you have joined us here on this journey!
