Why I’m Practising Minimalist Travel

Photo from Pexels on Pixabay Even though I consider myself to be an advanced home minimalist, my achilles heel has always been travel.

My Hoarder Past- How Minimalism Changed My Life

Photo by Denys Nevozhai on Unsplash I’ve been a minimalist now for 5 years – perhaps even longer. Looking around my house now and reflecting on life’s current trajectory, it’s hard to believe I was once a hoarder who sat in my gaming chair with no desire or direction. Tell a lie, I Continue Reading

What Do You Want from Life?

Photo by Sasha Freemind on Unsplash On a number of occasions my husband has asked me what I want out of life. We sometimes have these kinds of conversations when the kids have gone to bed or we’re out on a date night.  My answer is always the same: I want peace.  But Continue Reading
