Mom Says She Lives In A Shipping Container. The Moment You See The Inside, Your Jaw Will Drop

September 04, 2017

When you're a child, you have a lot of aspirations and your dreams seem to have absolutely no limits. As you grow older, though, life tends to throw you curves that you never see coming. In times like these, you have two options: give up or fight harder. A woman named Lulu chose the latter and her unwavering determination to achieve her dreams is leaving the internet in complete awe. Lulu had been accustomed to the typical, modern-day lifestyle where you work all week to afford a decent home, car, and all the usual amenities. She has always had a deep desire to further her education.


College isn't a cheap venture and Lulu realized that, in order to pursue this dream, she would have to make some sacrifices to make it work for her family. After a great deal of thinking, she discovered a new way of living that not only eased the stress of finances, but also made for a wonderful life for her daughter and herself. She decided to leave the financial burden of renting a home and move into a small, 8x20-square-foot shipping container. This was their new home. While, at first glance, it might seem a little bit crazy and out of the ordinary, it was the perfect solution for Lulu's situation.


Lulu is a very creative, hardworking woman and she could see the potential this tiny home holds. Using brilliant money-saving hacks, she was able to turn a simple old shipping container into a cozy, comfortable abode for her daughter and herself to call home. This unusual move not only freed her of a financial burden, but also enabled Lulu to focus her attention solely on her daughter and on her own education. Check out the video, below, to watch this jaw-dropping home transformation!
