I’m So Glad You’re Here!

Hi friend,

I’m so glad you’ve joined our community! I started this blog in 2011 and it was originally meant to serve as an accountability tool in my debt repayment journey. As you can see, though, it’s morphed into so much more than that over the years.

After paying off $30,000 of debt in two years, I adopted a minimalist lifestyle, decluttered and removed 75% of the belongings in my home, then put myself on a two-year shopping ban. I also took control of my health, lost 30 lbs. and quit drinking alcohol. And in 2017, I completed a year of slow living experiments.

Each week, I write a post that sheds some insight on how my decisions to become a more mindful consumer are changing my life. I also wrote a book about it! The Year of Less: How I Stopped Shopping, Gave Away My Belongings and Discovered Life Is Worth More Than Anything You Can Buy in a Store came out in January 2018.

Now that you’re signed up, you’ll get*:

  • my weekly newsletter filled with mindful musings every Friday
  • occasional life or event updates

Have a beautiful day!
