5 Weird Empty Nesting Tips Plus One

  1. Get rid of the house. When my daughter left home. I cried and cried. I tried not entering her room at all, then avoided going into the house at all. I spent most of my day outside. Nothing worked, nothing I tried. Getting rid of the house took a lot of memories off my mind.
  2. Go live on a beach! I met a man on the street one day and he said he was saving his pennies to be able to actually leave Canada one day and live on a beach in the southern hemisphere, Now he thought you could collect your Canada Pension there and live more cheaply too! Check this idea out thoroughly. I'm starting to think that might be the life for me!

  3. Go on a mission trip! Now that you don't need your kids' permission. I'm thinking of doing that. It's a grand ambition!
  4. Foster some cats, or doggies too! The dogs might help you meet new people too!
  5. Got a great kitchen? Start your own homeless mission! Umm.... on second thought here's a warning for you. I tried this and a whole lot of CARP happened to me too. However, if you hold a black belt degree, then this might be safer for you than it was for me!
  6. Build a tiny home community like the lady in this post.
Now if you don't have a home,
