Radical Simplicity

For my husband's 30th birthday, his best friend bought him the book "Radical Simplicity" by Dan Price. Everyone joked that J never finishes any books, but with this book, he proved them all wrong.

Dan's message is “You can live a life of freedom, in harmony with the rhythms of nature, and your own internal rhythm and creativity. You can live very well with very little money. That’s what I’ve done, and I can show you how.” The book illustrates the way he lived and how his life evolved by living minimally. Although the discussions with J about this book didn't make me want to go live in a hobbit hole, it did get us thinking about living more "authentically." 

Lately we've been swooning literally over the Tiny House Swoon website. The website shows tiny homes all over the world. We are very fascinated by these homes and would love to build one eventually. While planning for a Spring yard sale, it's amazing all of the clutter that we have in our home. I have an aunt + uncle who moved into a camper and they have no desire to ever live in their home again! I think there is something really wonderful about living with the little that you need. 
We definitely have some plans to change things around our household.

In the meantime, check out these incredible tiny homes!


Do you have any wish to live more simply? How do you try to implement these changes?


  1. They are so freaking cute. I'll take the last one, please.
