Crafting a happy home, family and life through simple living.

What is Minimalism?

Minimalism is not frugality.

Minimalism is using your money intentionally- high-quality items that will last, experiences you will remember. A pair of work pants that make you feel like the boss you are.

Minimalism is a budget free of the unnecessary and impulse buys.

Minimalism is not a white home.

Minimalism is a home full of the things you love, of things that make life better. Lots of pillows on your couch so family movie night cuddles. A painting that makes you happy when you walk down the hall. The “playroom” in the corner of your kitchen so you can watch your children play (and interact with them) as you cook dinner.

Minimalism is an intentional home, designed by YOU.

Minimalism is a home free of clutter that demands your time and full of the things that make you happy.

Minimalism is not anti-toy.

Minimalism is pro-child. Minimalism is providing purposeful toys for your children. Toys that inspire creativity, play, and learning. Valuable toys.

Minimalism is children free over overstimulation and consumerism.

Minimalism is not an empty closet.

Minimalism a closet full of clothes you love- and only clothes you love. The clothes are high quality, fit well, and are items you choose again and again because of how you feel wearing them. The shoes are comfortable, stylish, and versatile.

Minimalism is a closet free of clothes that you’ve only worn once, need a lot of maintenance, or items that came home with you after an impulse buy.


What minimalism means to me:

  1. Paying off school loans.
  2. Paying off car notes.
  3. Travel.
  4. Freeing myself of consumerism.
  5. Less time cleaning. More time living.
  6. Walking the mall without the wish to buy.
  7. Setting intentional routines for my family- family breakfast for example.
  8. Simplified cooking/meal planning.
  9. Slowing down to enjoy my children.
  10. Teaching my children the value of time/people/experiences and not things.

  • You know what, I haven’t really thought of minimalism on other aspects aside from interior designing. But now that you asked it, I’m thinking that minimalism for me is being simple. Having a simple life just means living within your means and being happy with it.
