Get rid of the clutter and simplify your life. How often have you heard that phrase and ignored it? Ten years ago a woman named Dee Williams decided she was going to downsize. However, that choice came after she discovered she did not have long to live.

Dee got rid of her clutter and now owns only 305 possessions. I think that’s how much I have in my closet! She built a tiny home on wheels. No mortgage. No water bill. No electric bill. Sounds awesome! Enjoy these photos showing a look into Dee’s journey to enjoy the rest of her life… (BoredOrNot)

She calls her home “The Big Tiny.” From this point of view it looks like “The Tiniest Tiny.”

Able to cook on a single electric hot plate. If she were a man, you know there would be a huge microwave. Just saying…
