The economy sucks, housing prices have yet to hit bottom, and your biggest fixed expense is almost certainly rent, unless it's summertime, in which case it's your electricity bill. Sounds like it's time to lead a richer life by reducing your dependence on worldly goods and wasted energy, no?

The growing Tiny House movement — here's an example of the genre — addresses all these issues at once, and in style. But where to find one?

Tiny House Listings has you covered. OK, so there are only a handful of homes on offer. But many are for sale directly from their manufacturers, so they can probably always build more.

Here's a two-story home for the price of a used car. And if you prefer something a little more Unhappy Hipsters, there's always this tiny home on wheels.
