For the past week or so, I’ve been trying to find the right words to describe the small declutter and purge I did this month. I was going to tell you I bagged up another 33% of my books to be donated to the library. Then I was going to talk about how my teeny tiny wardrobe has somehow grown from 28 pieces to 39 – but is now down ...

This is a guest post from my friend Mrs. Picky Pincher. It couldn’t be more timely for me, and I appreciate her willingness to open up and share this part of her story with us. <3 My mom was never one for jewelry. But, on one chilly November morning, I remember clutching to her necklace until my knuckles were white. It was Black Friday and we’d just celebrated Thanksgiving with our ...

This is a guest post from my friend David Cain. It originally appeared on his blog, Raptitude. When a friend of mine inspected the damage from a fender-bender, what upset him most was the discovery that his bumper was nothing but a brittle plastic husk supported by three pieces of styrofoam. The vehicle was new and probably cost about $35,000. In the documentary Minimalism, on Netflix, sociology professor Juliet Schor articulated something I’ve been ...

For the past few months, I’ve noticed an old and familiar habit slowly creep back into my life: impulsiveness. Specifically, impulsive spending. It started shortly after I finally found and bought a couch. That was an intentional purchase paid for with money I had set aside for it. But from there, I’ve made a few spending decisions that weren’t very well thought out. I booked a one-way flight and agreed ...

Hi friends! I’ve been working on something fun for a month and am so excited I can finally share it with you today. :) If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know I love to host giveaways. Over the years, I’ve given away dozens of books, gift cards, an e-reader and even a mattress! (Remember that one?) Being able to support and give back to the community we’ve created ...

I don’t know where the time has gone, friends. July has come to an end, which also means summer is half over. And it feels like I only just started the slow food experiment, yet somehow today is the last day of it. I have to admit: food has been the easiest of all the slow living experiments I’ve done so far this year. Truly, everything about it was easy. When ...

Hi friends! Once or twice a year, I like to share a list of general updates on my life and business. I used to call them our virtual coffee dates, but in line with the fact that I’ve been trying to get outside again more recently, I thought I’d take you on a virtual hike instead. :) If I’m honest, I’ve felt a bit all over the map lately – ever ...

Earlier this week, I took you on a tour of my simple kitchen. The purpose of that post was to show you one example of what a clutter-free kitchen can look like, as well as to give you a little peek inside my world! Aside from the fact that I like to line things up and keep them in order, my kitchen hasn’t always been that organized. Just look at ...

Since moving to Squamish, I’ve intentionally chosen to live without a few things and get comfortable in my space before buying anything for it. To give you a visual, this originally meant living without a couch for the first two-and-a-half months and having only a chair to sit on. (I finally bought a couch in June!) I also moved without a coffee table and a desk, both of which I ...
