Morning guys! Found this song on MP3 doing my daily decluttering challenge, and was blown away by how powerful it still is! Touches on so many things we talk about here – charity, freedom, introspection, and even those on which we don’t, but are still unfortunately very prevalent in our society. Was super moved all over again at how beautiful this song is, and hopefully […]

If you’re over 35, I’m sorry – you’re too late for these! – but if you’re under 35 then HURRY UP AND MAKE THESE HAPPEN OR DIE IN FINANCIAL RUIN!! Just kidding, haha… I just love how dire these lists always seem, don’t you? ;) As if everything always hinged on age and age alone? There are some pretty good ones on this list though, […]

Last year something amazing happened. Our basement flooded from a faulty dishwasher, and we ended up having to throw out a couple of damaged boxes from our storage. Not the most exciting of events it would seem, but inside one of those boxes was something I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with for years! MY CHILDHOOD TROPHIES!!! The bane of all minimalists! […]

We all know that tracking every transaction helps keep you accountable, but what if you were to just focus on the *wants* side of the equation? Would it open up your eyes even more or change future habits? I’ve been doing it for about a week now and so far I’m thoroughly enjoying it :) It hasn’t affected my patterns *too* much yet, but I’ve […]

Caught this on the internets the other day and almost had a moneygasm! It comes from the beautiful mind of Sarah Lazarovic, and thought we’d marinate on it for a bit as it’s pretty epic… Link to download the high res version is down below if you want to print or share it around. Would make an excellent companion piece to that high school money […]
