This story comes to you from Olympia, Washington. A woman who says she doesn't really need anything except for a smaller place has done so by building herself a small home and relying on solar energy and a propane tank to run her day to day utilities and uses. Dee Williams is quite content with her home and doesn't see the need to have a large home. I know a few friends of mine back in Connecticut that would probably do this just to save some money on expenses as well. Someone making $35-$40 thousand a year can find themselves having a lot of money in the bank that can be used on other necessities. As the cliche goes "You Go Girl".
