New to Skip to My Life? My husband and I recently downsized from a McMansion to a tiny, love cottage once our kids were grown and flown. If you’re looking for an upscale lifestyle on a downsized budget- I AM HERE FOR YOU!

Take a look around my blog. You’ll probably want to start here, where I tell The Story Behind Skip to My Life.

Here’s what you’ll need for each project demonstrated on the video above. Enjoy- and comment below with your favorite!
