Emily Behnke was a high level professional in a scientific organization before deciding her happiness was worth more than $100K. She and her family sold about a third of their belongings and decided to scale back to appreciate life more. Now they are building a high quality, small scale cottage outside of Amsterdam, New York, and are documenting their journey on this blog. In addition, Emily founded the Idlewild Design Company to assist others in downsizing (rightsizing!) their homes–organizing small spaces to the max; designing beautiful, comfortable spaces; and helping people recognize what is most important.
