How much stuff do we actually need?

When we watched “Tiny: A Story About Living Small” it was clear to us that this was definitely something we wanted to seriously pursue. In that film, there are a series of clips with a woman named Dee Williams. I remember Barry saying “she’s a Williams, she gets it” and noting on how genuine and real she seems on the film. I was digging for more interviews, videos, pictures, anything, as she seemed to embody the same mentality that Barry and I have toward moving to this way of living our lives. Then I found her TEDxConcordiaUPortland talk.

I’m just going to leave this here for you. Dee Williams gets it. And I want to go to a book reading, or run into her somewhere, and buy her coffee and give her a hug. She totally gets it.

Dee, if you’re out there reading this somehow, we want to fill your cooler with creamer and beer and hang out with you long enough to need to use both.

So, tell us. What item would you want to hold in your arms as you die? What favorite room in your house could accommodate that last breath?
