I would say happy Thursday, but this week has been a tough one! This week’s episode is going to be a little different. I fully planned to talk about the connection between our stuff and our pasts, building off of the blog post that I wrote this week.   However, something happened on Wednesday that is much more pressing. Gord Downie, frontman for the Tragically Hip, passed away from a long and public ...

If I asked you who you are, what would you say? I promise that’s not a flippant or loaded question. A lot of what we think and feel about our physical belongings is intimately linked to who we are, and more abstractly, who we think we are. In case you are wondering, I promise I’m not having an identity crisis. Fellow blogger and friend, Lisa, over at Lisa’s Simple Life Experiment wrote ...

Happy Thursday! (Or, happy whatever day it is when you’re reading this). On Monday, I shared 6 challenges I’ve faced as a minimalist and how I’ve dealt with them. One challenge I wrote about was getting your family on board with your new minimalist lifestyle. This hurdle, in particular, struck a chord with a reader, so I wanted to dive a little deeper in this week’s episode of Tiny Bites. Resources and ...

I’ve been meaning to write this post for months, but life kept getting in the way. Back in the summer, I put out a call for questions on my Facebook page. My dear friend, Leigh-Anna, replied with a whopper: What was your biggest challenge in becoming a minimalist? What were the hiccups along the way that you didn’t see coming? Woof! No easy questions from the Tiny Ambitions community. But, it got ...

Happy Thursday! (Or, happy whatever day it is when you’re reading this). On Monday, I shared my first-ever experience with Airbnb and what it taught me about the connection between the spaces we live in and our wellbeing. So, this week in Tiny Bites, I want to dive deeper into the idea that there is no right way for a space to look.  for it to have a positive impact on your ...

I struggle to buy into the idea that a minimalist life has to ‘look’ a certain way. I don’t believe that ‘minimalist’ spaces need to be empty, all-white spaces devoid of any colour, texture or stuff, in order to be ‘right’. So, imagine my surprise when I recently fell in love with an Airbnb that checked off most of the ‘minimalist design’ boxes. I was traveling a couple of weeks ago for ...

Happy Thursday! (Or, happy whatever day it is when you’re reading this). On Monday, I shared my plan to put $1000 a month into my tiny house fund, which is equal parts exciting and terrifying. So, this week in Tiny Bites, I wanted to explore the idea of aligning your finances with your goals. That sounds pretty straightforward, right? Whatever your goals are, spend (or save) your money accordingly. In reality, however, ...

I recently surpassed a big tiny house savings goal – there is now over $11,000 sitting in my tiny house savings account! I tweeted about the milestone, and the personal finance community that makes up the majority of my followers was incredibly supportive. One of them asked a question I had been dreading having to deal with. The wonderful Brittany Brolley from The Rinky-Dink Life said: “Yay! Do you have a projected ...

I don't travel a lot. I'm a bit of a homebody and day trips are more my speed anyway. So, when I do travel, it's almost always for work. In fact, I'm actually at a week-long conference for work this week. Which means, I've dusted off my ancient carry-on and written a packing list so I don't forget anything important (even though, I always do). Want to see what the inside of ...

Since I wrote about my accidental social media detox this week, I wanted to take some time in Tiny Bites to focus on the actual act of disconnecting - putting down your phone and taking a break from social media. Plus, I crowdsourced 10 top tips from my readers of ways to have more intentional interactions with your social media. Ready for a quick Bite? The post Tiny Bites 03: Social ...
