    How very fun to read this!! I found your blog only a few days ago, and was so delighted to read about your adventure this morning because our family is just counting the weeks until we are so free! We can’t wait to be just us! We have four children (plus I’m in my second trimester with the fifth) and we have lived the last five years in a small two bedroom home with minimal things and on my husband’s very modest income. Now we are counting down to our new life in Thailand, where we will move with just our suitcases! My list of items almost exactly matches yours in what we will take, except that I have to dedicate space to cloth diapers as well. ;) I very much look forward to hearing more about your China adventures. Thanks for including us!

    Congratulations on making your dreams a reality!! I look forward to hearing about your adventures. I wanted to share with you that a couple of months ago you posted a book recommendation, Mended: Pieces of a Life Made Whole by Angie Smith. I felt led to check it out, and asked a friend if she had read it–she hadn’t but suggested we start a book study. We got started, loved it, and felt led to share it. So, we are a week away from starting a new women’s group at our church! And, we learned that the author is local—–thank you for the suggestion!

      Awesome! I really loved that book. I want to read some of her other books in the next few months as well. She just seems so real :)

    Wow! It is so exciting to actually see the benefits of minimalism and that your dreams have become reality in such a short time! I can’t wait to read about your adventures as extreme minimalists in a foreign country…with kids! It is all very exciting.

    Good Luck and May all your dreams come true! :)
    I can’t tell you how much I have simplified our home in the last 6 months with your posts, it is more simple and beautiful than ever for me, and my hus and I decided to direct our efforts towards a making a family dream come true, to move from Germany where we live to Maui for 6 months with our teenage boys and experience something totally new! We can’t wait and it’s really happening now. We have not just simplified our home, but our needs and our thinking too. Simple living, higher thinking, isn’t that what they say! Also, thank you for using your dryer for laundry so you could free up more time to inspire so many people like us around the whole world! ;)

    Wow – congrats. Looking forward to more insight on the universal theme of minimalism, family news, and photos as you immerse yourself in a new culture.

    You are so inspiring, Lorilee! I just love your blog and having been reading you for a while now. This is my first time to comment, though. I’ve also read your e-books and consider them an essential part of my “minimalism” library. I wish you and your family all the best on your adventure in China. God Bless!

    Thankful to find this blog! We’ve sold our house and are looking at townhouses and condos now…trying to figure out how small we can go. I have had a hard time finding minimalists who didn’t upsize once they had kids, so your blog and links are great. Our challenges to downsizing include having two (3 soon) kids, homeschooling, and running two home-based businesses. This is just what I needed to read before checking out a 1200 sq ft condo that I worried might be too small! Plenty of room, right!
