Meet the Latigo family - Rachel, Jared and their three kids. They sold more than half the stuff they owned, as well as their house, and converted a metal building into a much smaller home on Rachel's parents land. Building the house themselves made it possible to design it specifically to their needs. In this interview, Jared and Rachel talk about getting debt free and show us around their house, where a lot of their rooms have custom build items. They also share about how much happier and stress free they have become since downsizing their life. Getting out of debt made it possible for Rachel to quit her job and become a stay at home mom, and she's able to homeschooling the kids and they are all able to spend much more time together as a family :) Check out their channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/BratBaby2216 Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/1WCeBAH Our website http://www.godownsize.com/ Camera gear used to film these videos: Camera Sony: http://amzn.to/1HBjEaF Boom mic: http://amzn.to/1HBjKzf Iphone 6se: http://amzn.to/1HBjTm5 GoPro Hero: http://amzn.to/1LoUJrB Macbook Pro: http://amzn.to/1SstJgm Light weight items we use for traveling: Baby chair: http://amzn.to/2lSLg52 Bugaboo Stroller: http://amzn.to/2meIwAC sun canopy: http://amzn.to/2mhPYg1 Travel bed/tent: http://amzn.to/2lSWNB9 Bath tub: http://amzn.to/2nas8k9 Suitcase: http://amzn.to/2mSv4FY Music credits: "Heart Ache" - Used with permission from https://brokeforfree.bandcamp.com/ http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/legalcode "Summer Spliffs" - Used with permission from https://brokeforfree.bandcamp.com/ http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/legalcode "Shine" - By Joakim Karud http://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud
