My Struggles with Minimalism

Over the last year, I think I’ve grown more as a person than I have in all of my 20s combined. I fully embraced Minimalism in January of 2019 and it’s been such an awesome learning experience. I’ve really gotten to know myself in so many new ways and my entire mindset has changed in the process. But it’s also kicked my ass in ways I wasn’t expecting at all.…

Going from NO Buy to LOW Buy

Since the beginning of 2019, I’ve been trying a little experiment. You might be familiar with the idea of a “no buy” year, or you’ve possibly heard it called a shopping ban.

It’s the best feeling of freedom I’ve ever experienced. I’ve been trying…

How to Enjoy Your Commute

I recently started a new job that increased my commute a little bit. Since I spend more time in the car now, not only driving to work but also driving around as part of my job, I wanted to get creative in the ways that I spend my time in the car. Not to say that you should ever drive distracted, but I do think there are better ways to…

Minimalism is For Messy People on a Budget

  Since I stumbled across the ideal of minimalism 6 months ago, I’ve learned a great deal about the philosophy behind it and a bunch of different peoples views on how to go about adopting this lifestyle.  I’ve read quite a few books in an effort to really get the best grasp on it that I could, because I really loved the idea of living with less and being thankful…
