Don’t get me wrong. When HGTV first started airing shows about Tiny Houses, I was fascinated. But I was equally dumbfounded. The practically non-existent kitchens, the bathrooms where you could hardly turn around, the living areas (you could hardly call them living rooms) with no space for comforting couches, the steep stairs (or, heaven forbid, ladders) to a loft where you could barely sit up . . . I could never live like that!
You know the part where they say you need to have $1 million saved for your retirement? Well, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. For multiple reasons this is not even remotely close to my reality.
Maybe, like me, you’re part of the “middle market,” with enough income to support ourselves, but not enough to afford the $3000+ monthly fees in a senior community or CCRC?
