Tori Spelling grew up in one of the largest homes in the country, a 56,500 square foot mansion. However, the life of decadence she knew as a child is not the one she wants to pass on to her own children.

Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott moved out of their 7,000 square foot home for a smaller place in Malibu. With the move, they are looking to keep their lives free of “stuff.”

The former 90210 actress said, “It’s true that the simpler life is such a better way. We all accumulate so much, and we feel like we can’t live without stuff. We really don’t need any of that stuff to make it work and be happy.”

The two acre property will allow their family to garden, care for animals and be more attached to nature.

Spelling continued, “Spacewise, we have less than half of what we had before, but our old home wasn’t conducive to farm living. Sustainable farming is a lifestyle we want to teach our children. We wanted to grow our own vegetables and fruit trees.”
