Thrifting our way (temporarily in Bulgaria) to a better life

“Remember son, never get off the bus”

Because it is a cutesy slice of Americana for those of us across the pond, this converted yellow school bus creates a space that looks the business, and if in any doubt of the location please notice the homespun patchwork quilt in there for good measure- now forever fixed in our mind by Whitney Otto in the 90’s as conjuring up images of tradition, family relationships and good old fashioned yarning (both embroidery based and natter).
I like the point the article makes “Contentment is the key to tiny living”- you have to be happy within your self, your possessions, and namely those you live with. Familiarity breeds contempt if you are none too careful, so my advice with this sort of thing is go park your bus somewhere where a warm/dry climate and let the Outdoors becomes your additional rooms. Potential rent free square footage under the sky, and if you get good enough ‘dark skies’ , free spotlights!

Call me thrifty, prudent, tight or even a miser, but squirreling money away is definitely my thing. The ins and outs of how saving money became a lifestyle, in order to work towards a specific lifestyle change. Follow me on that journey and learn to look at life in a different way.
